More for Women’s History Month

I know, I know, posting two links round-ups in one month is kind of lame, but I’m working on a paper for a conference so my brain is mush!

For your Women’s History Month enjoyment and education:

1. Eight women in Hollywood who are calling out industry sexism.

2. Ten visionary women who are working to help and empower other women.

3. Eight women who have already made the world a better place in 2014.

4. Seven teen girls who are changing the world.

5. 23 fun, feminist digital campaigns.

*Bonus link*: This interactive chart lets you easily compare different countries around the world on the rights that their women do and don’t have. Some of the findings may surprise you! I’ve listed the types of rights below – which are most important to you?

  1. The links are all really good, and I’m looking forward to having a deeper look into them.
    What is really disappointing is that my school didn’t even celebrate or mention International Women’s Day. It wasn’t on a school day, but given that we are an all girl’s school, I thought it would have at least been mentioned.

    • Just realized I never replied to this – sorry! But that’s disappointing. All-girl schools can be such a great environment for empowerment and education – it’s awesome when they take advantage of that, but can be frustrating when they don’t.
