Happy International Women’s Day and Feminist Coming Out Day! There is a TON of stuff going on, both IRL and in the virtual world. Here in Kansas City, you can take part in our local Feminist Coming Out Day events (also be sure to check out the UMKC gallery on the national website. If you’d like to add yourself to the project, email a photo and a short statement about why you’re a feminist to firstname.lastname@example.org).
In the virtual world, there is a ton of good content out on the interwebs celebrating women and feminism. There’s far too much for one person to link to, but here are some to get you started:
Hillary Clinton on the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day. Let’s do as she asks and
mark this day by finding ways to ensure women and girls’ access to education, health care, jobs, and credit, and to protect their right to live free from violence.
Finally, if you’re on Twitter, be sure to tweet using the hash tag #afeministlookslike or #ilooklikeafeminist (which is what the #sachat folks are using). Below are some tweets from some of my favorite tweeps for you to use as inspiration:
What about you? How will you celebrate International Women’s Day and Feminist Coming Out Day? Let me know in the comments!
