It’s Feminist Coming Out Day! AND International Women’s Day! LADY FRENZYYY! (AND it’s Fat Tuesday — of course it is, amiright, girls?)
You are, today and every other day, proud to be a lady who stands up for other ladies, so we made you a badge about it. No big deal, but we made it special for you. Like, no pressure, but we crafted it with you, personally, you in mind. But whatever. I mean, only wear it if you want to, and if you don’t we’ll just know you don’t believe in equality. Yay, you’re putting it on! It looks great! Those dots symbolize how we’re a pox on humanity. Just kidding! They symbolize how feminism is spreading! Kidding again but only kind of; they really just fill up the blank space. And here are some awesome links to fill up THIS blank space:
From The Atlantic, an interview with Supreme Court Justice and Honorary Lady Scout Sonia Sotomayor. From the newnewNewsweek, an article about The Feminists in the Middle of Tahir Square. From The Daily Beast, we learn about Hillary Clinton’s War for Women’s Rights.
And if you’re wondering about what the haps are, check this out. And if you’re wondering about how to do something positive, check this out. And if you’re wondering who should inspire you, this will give you one hundred ideas. That is so many ideas! Remember when they didn’t let us HAVE ideas? THAT WAS CRAZY, let’s not let that happen again. For a refresher, we should all read up on an extra cool lady who is getting a statue today (Congrats, Mary Wollstonecraft! You fancy!).
And finally, here is Nellie McKay singing at the Rally for Women’s Health. The second wonderful tune features the chorus “feminists don’t have a sense of humor,” reminding us why it’s okay that we’re joking about this important subject. We’re joking because feminists are still hilarious.
Wear this badge prominently or you’re defeating the purpose of the badge. It’s not Feminist Hiding Out Day. GO TEAM WOMEN EVERYWHERE AND ALSO EVERYONE ELSE, EVERYONE EQUALLY.
I wish it could be LADY FRENZYYY! all the time.
