In January 2017, the Women鈥檚 March on Washington alone drew approximately 500 thousand ladies 鈥 not to mention the (literal) millions of participants who showed up to raise their voices at 600 other locations worldwide. Timed just one day after the controversial inauguration of President Trump, the history-making event inspired headlines and social media hysteria based on sheer numbers and 鈥 perhaps more importantly 鈥 because of its loud-and-proud statement about the unbreakable bonds of peaceful sisterhood.

The fervor generated by the Women鈥檚 March wasn鈥檛 over on January 22. The movement had a 100-day plan, which encouraged concerned Americans everywhere to send postcards to local Congress members, join other activist groups, get involved in other marches, and organize 鈥渉uddles鈥 (groups of 10-15 like-minded pals who can help you visualize a safer, happier world, and create a plan to make it a reality).

In early February, the visionaries behind the Women鈥檚 March announced early plans for 鈥淎 Day Without a Woman.鈥 Scheduled on International Women鈥檚 Day (March 8), the peaceful strike was intended to make a statement to society about what our communities and workplaces would actually look like if women were to withdraw from them. Once again, social media and the mainstream news basically went nuts. If exposure was the goal, these amazing movements are definitely taking care of business.

But it doesn鈥檛 stop there. Musicians, artists, and creatives of all types continue to express their frustrations and fears with the state of women鈥檚 rights in our world today 鈥 for just one example, check out this Nasty Women-themed global art movement, which has totally subverted now-President Trump鈥檚 infamous incident of name-calling from the 2016 debates. Influencers from all corners of pop culture and politics are still encouraging voters to contact local representatives to voice their concerns and help shape the future of their communities.

We love that the momentum started by the Women鈥檚 March is showing no signs of slowing down, and it鈥檚 important we all do our part to contribute by sharing our support via social media, staying informed about the relevant issues, and actually showing up to the awesome events that are bound to crop up in the future. The March itself 鈥 along with the activism it鈥檚 catalyzed since January 鈥 still matters, mostly because it鈥檚 a reminder to others that we鈥檙e. Still. Here. By continuing to stay involved in the movement, we prove that we鈥檙e more than just bandwagonners who wanted to pose for selfies in pink pussy hats the day after the inauguration. Tough political conversations, marches, financial contributions, and a general 鈥済et 鈥檈m girl鈥 attitude are more important now than ever.

If you鈥檙e wondering who to thank for jumpstarting all these warm and fuzzy (yet also fired-up) sisterhood vibes, look no further than Women鈥檚 March National Co-Chairs Carmen Perez, Tamika Mallory, and Bob Bland. These are the women helping to inspire so many of us to fight for our rights, and doing the good (and challenging) work of harnessing our energy to make sure that our efforts are organized, effective, and noticed. If you want to hear more from the co-chairs, we have good news for you. Perez, Mallory, and Bland will be keynote speakers at this year鈥檚 Her Conference, a career development conference for college women scheduled for this July 22-23 in New York City. You can get all the details and learn more about buying tickets here.
