#WhyIMarch published one year ago today!
All royalties from the sale of the book went to three non-profits associated with the Women’s March on Washington—The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH), and @translawcenter. We are proud to say that, at this point, we have garnered nearly $50,000 in royalties, all of which will be evenly divided between these wonderful organizations! 🙌
Rumor has it #TheSpiceGirls , some of the leaders of the #GirlPower movement, are doing another reunion tour! We absolutely loved this sign from this year's @womensmarch. Who are some of your favorite feminist icons? Tap to shop our Girl Power tee, available in three colors! #FeistyGalStudio

I am reposting this from the super amazing intelligent feminist stripper @valeriestunning who I highly recommend you follow. Once again, today I felt judgement being passed for my lifestyle as a sexually expressive and liberated woman. Someone who claims to be a progressive feminist, yet turns there noses at burlesque dancers, strippers, sex workers, etc. still don’t understand that they are part of the problem. Please read and share! : ・・・
ATTENTION CAPTAIN SAVE-A-HO'S 🙋
No one here on Team Consenting Sex Worker is pretending the dark side doesn't exist.
What we're asking is that you acknowledge:
WE EXIST, we account for the majority and that respecting CONSENTING SEX WORK is integral to the advancement of the feminist agenda and human rights.
It's really getting old, this being passed over in the movement because you validate dangerous, misinformed stigmas.
I challenge you to engage in a conversation with us.
To listen to us. To try and understand us. To invite us to the table when you write your laws about us and our businesses. To discover what it is that will actually protect us and inevitably advance the cause.
Or is that too intimidating? 😶
I know. Us women have been systematically conditioned (for what seems like foreva eva) to condemn our pussies. We've let our deeply seeded resentment inform how we feel about, and, express our sexuality for way too long.
But please recognize, by refusing to acknowledge consensual sex work(ers)- you contribute to the very problem you wish to eradicate.
You keep us marginalized and diminish our voice. You, yes you, contribute to the problem.
Don't be part of the problem. 🌷✊ photo: repost by an anonymous OG nasty woman by way of @jacqthestripper 🙌🏻 #goaskval#sexworkisrealwork#nastywoman#womensmarch#womensmarchonwashington#vivelarésistance
Craig (left) & Jules, feminists - from The Face of Feminism Now
How would you define your brand of feminism?
Craig - "Emulating virtues that cultivate environments in which equality and acceptance thrive; environments where work ethic, altruism and love are both commonplace and celebrated."
Jules - "I’m a feminist for the future. I want to make sure that the next generations not only have a chance at equality, but also understand how far we’ve come."
