From the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements to the Women’s March, resistance in the name of women’s rights has been gaining momentum in the US. We at GGJ, are organizing a social media mini-campaign to push the conversation further, and we are asking you to join us! Our goal is to shed light on grassroots feminism and the reality that our organizing struggles, from housing to climate to anti-militarization, are deeply connected to the fight against patriarchy.
Today marks the 109th year anniversary of International Women’s Day (IWD)! Around the world people are celebrating how far we have come, but also reflecting on all that is left to do in the fight for gender justice. As the current dialogue about women’s rights continues to grow, as shown by the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, we want to be sure to push the conversation further. Today, and always, we honor the long and global history of feminist resistance and we emphasize the importance of reclaiming feminism for the grassroots.
