1. International Women’s Day became #daywithoutawoman, thanks to the Women’s March on Washington organizers. Women across the country went on strike, wore red, and spent their money at woman and minority-owned small businesses.
We love this recap—here are some highlights:
✊ The House Democratic Women’s Working Group staged a walk-out.
2. People celebrated International Women’s Day around the world.
Here’s an amazing roundup of coverage:
3. The creative resistance continues during Women’s History Month:
🙌 A bookstore put the spotlight on women authors by turning male-authored books backward on their shelves.
🙌 IMDB created an “F For Female” rating to represent women in film.
🙌 Someone put up posters around NYC to remind people of Trump’s misogynist remarks.
🙌 A 12-year-old girl raised more than $2,000 for the ACLU by drawing everyday superheroes.
🙌 A Mexican-American artist is painting the border fence away.
🙌 Women are leading the resistance against Trump. Oh yeah!
But, this guy?! He’s gotta go.
7. After Amnesty International mobilized its members, ICE released a young mother with a brain tumor from detention so she can get medical treatment while her asylum claim is processed.
“In this Trump era, here’s an opportunity to show everybody that local politics reigns supreme. We can make our corner of the world outstanding.”
10. In response to a racist incident, Chinese students at Columbia University released a powerful video that’s gone viral and inspired the school to create more videos in support of international students.
11. After women left work at 2:38pm to protest the gender pay gap back in October, Iceland is taking measures to become the first country to require proof that women receive equal pay.
“Culture does not make people. People make culture. If it is true that the full humanity of women is not our culture, then we can and must make it our culture.”
