Can't Make it to The March? Here Are 4 Other Ways to Show Your Support
A look at 2016’s most badass female-led protests might have you wondering: can such epic moments truly be recreated en mass, yet again? The answer: this is not a zero-sum game of political activism, and the magic that took Poland, Iceland, and South America (among others) by storm can once again be summoned for the march that could define a generation: the Women’s March on Washington. Equally important? Feminist magic isn’t confined by a GPS, and won’t be any less potent if you can’t be in Washington, D.C. on January 21. So grab your girl gang and snag some free WiFi: it’s time to get organized. The clock is ticking!
