International Women’s Day | 2018

Happy International Women’s Day, everyone! This is for sure one of my favorite days of the year. March 8th is known as International Women’s Day, celebrating all types of women all around the world, their contributions/progress in society, and the fight for women’s rights and equality. This year’s theme for IWD is “Press for Progress”, a demand for change this year. With movements such as #TimesUp and #Metoo, women are seeking to make a progressive change in society, by receiving justice for assault survivors in the music and film industry, electing more women into office, and having women realize their ambitions.  The Women’s March Association, theme for this year is “marching to the polls”, having women run for office whether it’s federal, state, or local. Encouraging women that we have power to seek change and lead.

International Women’s Day to me means; empowering woman and supporting one another, celebrating the actions and contributions that women  have made to our society, and to continue fighting for equality and women’s rights. On a more personal note, I want to honor the amazing women in my life that have impacted me, my mother, my therapist, and my aunt, who have all made into the person I am today.


Although we’ve had progress made for marginalized groups, there is still a long way to go, that being said, change will happen, although it is up to us to demand it and go out to achieve it, always remember that “The Future is Female”, The Future is Inclusive”, and “The Future is Change”.D5C88C62-370A-4D72-AC13-49F0FCF59200

Women’s March: Power to the Polls Chicago 2018|Why I March

On the Saturday of January 21st of 2017 a revolution began, known as the Women’s March. This women/feminist revolution specifically occurred the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated into office as the new president. Women activists decided to take a stand against Trump’s misogynist, racist, homophobic, egoistic, inequality evil agenda by marching throughout the country and protesting in numerous cities about the upcoming four years.

Now it is January 20th, 2018, a year after Trump has become inaugurated as president and many are here marching against Trump and his administration, fighting for human rights that have been impacted within this past year. I was given the opportunity to march with my fellow people against Trump’s agenda and his administration. I marched to the polls on January 20th, 2018 in my beautiful home city of Chicago. As an intersectional feminist it was a remarkable experience that I will never forget. Personally to me what’s real amazing is how over 300,000 people came out to the Women’s March in Chicago to protest, march, and unite.

Yesterday I marched for the inequalities that women, people of color, immigrants/refugees, the lgbtq+ community, the disabled, and the less fortunate face in today’s society. I also march for sexual assault survivors, for those that have been separated and deported from their families, for the earth, and those who have lost their life in 2017 from Trump’s America. I march to say that these marginalized groups are important and that they matter. Become an intersectional feminist, be an activist, be someone who protests what you want to change, and lastly vote because your vote matters. Remember that we can, we have, and we will demand change. The future is female and 2018 will be the year we come back!

“Change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to Demand It.”  – Barack Obama
