Dear friends & feminists,
How are you feeling?
As we watched the world change in the face of this global emergency, we came together in collective to check-in with one another, reflect together, and encourage discussions in solidarity with women, girls, gender-non-conforming, and non-binary people in all their diversity.
Today, this informal collective is made up of more than 400 feminists and activists from 74 countries, consistently tracking COVID-19 response efforts, sharing playlists, organizing book clubs, and outlining the six key principles to ensure a just and resilient post-pandemic world.
As we developed an extensive repository of response efforts, countless conversations inspired us to amplify our collective memory. We developed “A Shared Memory: Feminist Stories from the Pandemic”, to provide a space and opportunity for a wide range and diversity of feminist experiences to be shared during this time. We welcome feminists everywhere to submit visuals, poetry, written work, and more to build and record this collective memory in a dynamic way.
If you or someone you know is interested in contributing to ‘A Shared Memory’, please fill out our submission form below. We are proud to record this history with your insight and contributions.
