Danai Gurira  Actress • Playwright • Activist • Founder of ‘Love Our Girls’ ~ Take the pledge at LOGPledge.org #LoveOurGirls

April’s #LoveOurGirls newsletter celebrates the 30th anniversary of Hedgebrook, a women’s writer’s retreat. This magical enclave, tucked in Washington’s idyllic countryside, is a place that beautifully nurtures what its tagline - “Women Authoring Change” – seeks to promote. I’m incredibly grateful for this space where women writers (from the established to the novice) gather in community to support and enrich one another, while answering the calling on their souls to write. Learn more about my time at #Hedgebrook and the stories of the talented authors who have found their voices here by clicking the link in my bio.

It gives me some hope that we are starting to hear more and more men speaking out in favor of gender equality, standing up for the rights of women, and acknowledging female contributions to society. In our Women’s History Month-themed #LoveOurGirls newsletter, #RyanCoogler, @PaulBettany and others reflect on the historical female figures that most inspire them. Link in the bio.

The struggle for gender equality cannot succeed without the participation of men. This #WomensHistoryMonth I wanted to give the floor to men who wished to share who their favorite women in history are, and why. Let’s celebrate some of the women whose powerful legacies have affected the lives of men across the globe, and across time. Read more in our March #LoveOurGirls newsletter which is now live. Link is in the bio.

“She could be the next Oprah or the next Michelle. But If we don’t get up and do something practical in our various positions of power, she might not reach her greatness and potential.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Heartfelt thanks to @Essence for honoring me at this year’s #BlackWomeninHollywood Awards! The entire event was wrapped in the warmth of sisterhood that you’ve espoused since your inception. Being recognized alongside these incredible women - @lenawaithe, @tessamaethompson, and @tiffanyhaddish - was an added treat.

Special salute to the #Essence leadership team: @vanessa_kdeluca, @corimurray & #MichelleEbanks. I’m grateful for the space you’re filling in this world.
