I’m not posting today because I’m taking the train downtown to be in my local Women’s March. If you aren’t in America, this is a protest march organized for the day after Trump’s inauguration. A million women are descending on DC (2 of my friends are going, including a grandmother from my church quilting group) and every city in America is having it’s own version. Anyway, while I’m busy marching around or whatever we will be doing (I haven’t been to a protest in years, not since my parents took me when I was a little kid to the anti-Gulf War ones, so I don’t really know what happens), I thought I might as well schedule a theme post to go up so you can share the experience.
It’s a general protest march, but it’s also specifically for and by woman, a group that will be suffering a lot for the next 4 years. So I wanted to put up some videos to remind us how awesome women are. First, my favorite, which is pretty old now but still relevant. Put up by “Breakthrough”, a human rights organization that works in India and abroad.
2016 was a great year for movies and songs that make you feel good about being a woman, and not afraid to stand up for yourself.
Neerja isn’t officially a feminist movie or about women’s rights or any of that. But really, it is.
