Earlier this spring, Rachel Seidman's Women in the Public Sphere class had an idea--a viral idea. These 16 students wanted to give the women's movement a PR boost to combat the post-feminist sentiments and "feminazi" backlash that they saw in the world.
So, they took to the web via Facebook, Twitter and Tumbler to publicly proclaim why feminism was still relevant and important to them--and they encouraged others to do the same. They started a conversation that hasn't stopped yet with over 11,000 Likes, almost 1000 posts on Tumbler, and similar projects cropping up on other campuses. Clearly, feminism is alive and well and kicking butt!
And, now the campaign is competing for $1000 from Good Maker to keep it up. You can help by voting for the campaign between now and June 7th.
Let's make good, people!
