How to celebrate the Women's March on Washington (no matter where you live!)


If you haven't heard of it, the Women's March on Washington is an event for any and all people who advocate for diversity, human rights, dignity and justice for those who have preceded us. Tomorrow (January 21, 2017), people from all over the world will march at the U.S. Capitol to turn the United States of America into a country that understands women's rights are human rights. You can read their full mission here.

So, how can you be a part of it? Even if you don't live in the D.C. area, there are a ton of ways to get involved. Whether it's hosting a viewing party or gathering your gals for a local march, this cause is *totally* worth celebrating!

Here at GL, we are *so* excited about the march...and you should be too. In the words of Audre Lorder, "It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." You're never too young to take a stand for what's right.
