Thousands and thousand of women are marching in Washington, DC and across the country in local marches to protest our new administration. Women from all over are banding together to promote intersectional feminist ideals and demonstrate that together, we are stronger, and we’ve got no time for their ish. I wish I could be out there marching with all the badass ladies, but instead, I’ll be celebrating my favorite activists and feminists with some patriarchy-smashing reads. Your Hour Twelve challenge is this: in the comments, tell me either who you’d like to be marching with today or what feminist books you’re reading in solidarity?
I personally would love to stand arm-in-arm with Gloria Steinem, Angela Davis, Michelle Obama, and Beyonce (anyone that stands in front of a giant “Feminist” sign is an activist in my book). And I’ve got We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Here We Are by Kelly Jensen (you can win this one!), the Mockingbird: Vol. 1 comic by Chelsea Cain, and Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay on my feminist TBR stack.
I’ll pick a winner at Hour 18. And don’t forget you can still enter the Hour Zero: Intro Survey challenge until midnight ET tonight!
For now, how about a winner for our Shelfie challenge from Hour Six?
Excellent shelfie work, everyone. Not a bad looking reader among you.
And of course, we’re drawing four more door prize winners:
Rebekah (on Litsy @BekahB)
Carmen (on Litsy @Books.Bottles.and.Babies)
See you back here in three hours! Happy reading (and marching)!
