the feminist photos

“Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” -G.D. Anderson

In honor of International Women’s Day, here are some of my favorite female authors. Always keep fighting for equality. Demand respect. Never back down.

The photo that quietly tells a powerful story about the cracks in America’s feminist movement.

A black woman holds a sign that reads, “Don’t forget: White women voted for Trump.” She stands coolly among the crowd, sucking a lollipop, as three white women in pink cat-eared "pussyhats” tower behind her, all looking at their phones, one smiling, another posturing as if snapping a selfie. The black woman is wearing a hat, too. It reads, “Stop Killing Black People.”

To many, the now viral image of a sober-looking Angela Peoples and the blithe faces of the white women behind her epitomize a divide between white women and black women that was unmistakable in the 2016 election. More than 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump, while nearly 94% of black women voted for Hillary Clinton. The split signals how these groups experience sexism and oppression differently. More.

Powerful photos show just how big women’s marches were around the world

  • Hundreds of thousands of marchers gathered to make their voices heard at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday — but they weren’t the only ones marching.
  • Sister marches, hundreds more of them, were held in cities around the globe. See more photo from the ground

There’s no bigger lie perpetuated by the alt-left that Bernie Sanders is better on women’s issues than Hillary Clinton the same way he’d be better on race relations than Barack Obama.

And no, it’s not coz Clinton is a woman and Obama is black, but coz Bernie really suck in those issues and has no record or good policies to back up his patronizing lines from his stump speeches.
