Happy #WorldPoetryDay ! Whose poetry would you want the world to #ReflectAndResist with?

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: In this November 3, 1971 black and white photo taken in Los Angeles, Maya Angelou, smiling and wearing a head wrap, is seated while leaning her hands and chin on a copy of her book, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."

Spring has sprung. Who doesn't love a good floral? 🌸🌺💐 if you haven't read the saga of THE dress it's on our blog whatwouldyeezuswear.tumblr.com .

Also make sure to #reflectandresist via the @womensmarch. They've provided some great resources to expand our view to include all forms of oppression in our path to equality. #intersectionality is complex and it starts with education and acknowledgment of the work done by those who've been in the trenches and the privileges we've benefitted from at the expense of others. (We know we're just two girls, one of us very white, w/ a silly Instagram but we hope you appreciate us taking the mic we've been afforded to share what we care about, while still taking time to laugh. Laughter is a form of #resistance cc @mspackyetti)

perfect tote to carry my books through WHNP school. ✊🏼 (all proceeds for the tote are donated to @plannedparenthood - they've raised over $70,000 so far!)

Yesterday we launched the fifth action in our 10 Actions / 100 Days campaign for @womensmarch: #ReflectAndResist
Visit the link in the Women's March bio to get started.

"Action 5 is designed to educate some, and refresh others, through study, reflection, and courageous conversations, so that we can all be empowered by, and learn from, the work of activists who came before us, while being mindful not to perpetuate the mistakes of the past. Community is key to activism, so bring your huddles, neighbors, and your march partners back together, collectively choose a book or article to read, or film to watch. Take time to reflect and, together, discuss the topics that they highlight and the issues that women experiencing multiple forms of oppression have faced and continue to face."

These are some of my favorites but I wanna make a conscious effort to find more books written by women of color. ✊🏾

#womensMARCHfl MARCH 22: #ReflectandResist #womensmarchflorida
The feminist movement has a complex history. It is a powerful movement that has gained monumental victories, yet one cannot speak about feminism without acknowledging the dismal lack of representation for, and at times an active sidelining and silencing of the issues facing women of color, women with disabilities, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

The Women's March is committed to learning from this history in order to guide our collective work with an intentionally intersectional approach, which is why "Action 5" is titled "Reflect and Resist." The ways in which oppressive institutions are interconnected and perpetuate oppression cannot be examined separately from one another. When we examine issues of oppression in silos, people fall through the cracks and into the margins. We commit to focusing on those cracks and margins. In doing so, we strive to unfurl an umbrella under which individually powerful movements - racial justice, gender justice, disability justice, labor justice, and more - can unite, with a collective emphasis on the people and communities that are so often left behind or treated as an afterthought. We ask you to commit to this as well.

Today, PLEASE SHARE your book, article and film selections related to this topic, and let us know how you’re participating in the "ReflectAndResist" Action. Use the hashtag #ReflectAndResist #womensmarchflorida on social media- don't forget to tag us on Instagram and Twitter! (@WMW_Florida)

Today I #reflectandresist back to my first protest. November 12, 2016. The Saturday after the Election. Not My President March in NYC. I was headed downtown to be at the protest. I gathered a frew friends in the neighborhood that I hadn't talked to in a while. We all went down and marched to Trump Tower. That was the beginning of something new. .

Not My President, November 12, 2016

Phones out everyone. 5calls.org and resistbot.io make it easy.
They are hoping you don't speak up about Medicaid or the Supreme Court smash and grab, so make your voices heard. #ReflectAndResist

#ReflectAndResist supplemental resource: @radicalbrowniesmovie This short documentary follows the @radicalmonarchs, an Oakland-based alternative to the girl scouts whose founders were "inspired by the legacies of social justice movements and the desire to create a space centered on the development of young girls of color...to empower and nurture their strength." Link to the full 21-minute movie is on our facebook page!

#31daysofWomenWarriors
Day 22: Edie Windsor

ACTION: Don't assume someone's straight. Don't assume someone's queer. Don't ASSume!

Edie Windsor has always broken boundaries: first at IBM, and then, with the Supreme Court. Edie Windsor married her partner Thea Spyer in Canada in 2007, what she called a "42-year long engagement." When Thea died two years later, Ms. Windsor was hit with a $350,000 penalty in federal estate taxes, a penalty that would've been avoided had their marriage been recognized as legal in the U.S. (or had they been a hetero couple). She filed a lawsuit.

The case of United States v Windsor is perhaps the most influential legal precedent in the LGBTQ movement. In its landmark 2013 ruling in Windsor, the Supreme Court struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act , granting marriage rights to same-sex couples as the law of the land.

It's #WomensHistoryMonth , so I'm dedicating 31 days to women warriors that have shaped our history and have been forgotten, unsung, or simply not celebrated enough. To coincide with this woman will be a simple practical action to honor her.

"From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well. As Dr. Gerda Lerner has noted, 'Women’s History is Women’s Right.' It is an essential and indispensable heritage from which we can draw pride, comfort, courage, and long-range vision.” - President Jimmy Carter, February 1980, during the proclamation of Women’s History Week #WomensHistoryMonth
