March on, sisters!

22 Jan

I want to say up front that this post is 100% sincere. I can understand that the name of this website might mislead people into thinking that I don’t support women’s rights, but that’s not the case at all. When I see things like this magnificent expression of women demanding rights and opposing that orange little con-man who just took office in the US, I am beyond stoked.

One seriously awesome woman: Gloria Steinem

Gloria Steinem is a legend and hearing her speak about not letting the people be divided is so satisfying because not only does she get it, she’s communicating it to all the women of the world.

This is real feminism. This is a genuine fight for equality that is making a real impact on the world. I love it.

While Trump supposedly only affects America, the truth is that he, and those like him impact us all, worldwide. Seeing all the global sister protests coming together to say “Fuck that guy” is one of the most impressive political statements I’ve ever seen.

Look at the numbers in Boston! Holy mother of crap!

One thing I want to point out is that these protests are not targeted at ‘men’ generally, they are targeted specifically at Donald Trump, and deservedly so. Beyond that, the protesters and they protest leaders are speaking about women’s issues without blaming men for those issues, and that’s really, really important.

That point that Gloria Steinem made about not being divided is absolutely essential for us all moving forward. Removing power mongers like trump requires unity. Pushing for women’s rights requires unity. Pushing for equality requires unity.

It’s absolutely beautiful seeing unity in action around the world today, fighting the good fight.
