Happy International Women’s Day, all! If you know me and my work, you know I have a few thoughts on how to celebrate. Some ideas:
1. Go to Twitter and look for #IWD (it’s trending!). Then bask in the glow of lady power, get angry about how sexist a lot of the world still is, discuss and debate the issues, and maybe even find a new cause.
2. While you’re there #FF some of your favorite women on Twitter, or find some new ones to follow.
3. Thank a woman — on social media or otherwise — doing good work for women.
4. Watch the online screening of PBS’ Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women.
5. Support a project on Melinda Gates’ Catapult page dedicated to helping women and girls in developing countries.
6. Take The Guardian‘s International Women’s Day book quiz.
7. Better yet, read a feminist book! I’ve been on a Gloria Steinem kick — I just finished Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions and am now mid-Revolution from Within. Here are some other ideas. Though of course, I’d love it if you read the book I co-authored with Heather Wood Rudulph, Sexy Feminism, out on Tuesday.
