I‘ve been listening to the tagged book & thinking. I came up with an idea that I think could be BIG if organized & promoted properly:

Treat March 1st (the first day of Women‘s History Month) as if it‘s New Year‘s — but instead of making New Year‘s Resolutions, make #feministresolutions. Hashtag it, convince the other women in your life to do it, & the men, too. Make it go viral! Feminism is for everyone. 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1:I‘m thinking about posting it in the Library groups I‘m a part of on Facebook because I‘ll need help with promotion & compiling resource guides. For instance, lists of books to educate yourself. Community resources. A list of media for men to consume to upset the gender stereotype & get in touch with their emotions: books/movies etc to make men cry. Anyway, if you want in or you have ideas & you‘re a PLANNER/ORGANIZER/RESEARCHER, let me know! 6h
DaveGreen7777 This is an amazing idea! I‘ll definitely be making some #FeministResolutions! (edited) 6h
monalyisha I‘m thinking of finding a person or a small team of people to be responsible for creating a guide of Actionable Items by State. I could potentially make a website & get everything up & running, but I‘d also need a handful of webmasters to check on it seasonally & make sure it‘s up-to-date. (I‘m already stretched pretty thin with going back to school.) Just thinking out loud here! VERY beginning stages. (edited) 6h
LapReader My suggestions for making men cry are Handmaid‘s Tale and Big Little Lies. My partner did anyway. He has 2 daughters so that may have helped. Both of the shows just make me angry. My dad cries at funerals and at songs not shows. My ex husband never cried perhaps that is one of the many reasons he is my ex. Ha! 2h

When I started reading this book I wasn‘t sure I was going to like it. It wasn‘t my typical read, however just a few chapters into it I was hooked! I found myself drawn into the lives of all the characters. I wanted to keep reading because I wanted to know what celebrations or heartaches each character was having. I really enjoyed the book! #bnbookclub

“Most women I knew did not want the “opportunity” to patrol the borders of patriarchal overreach; we felt torn about both the vague prospect & the observed reality of these men losing their jobs. We thought of their feelings & their families, fretted that the disclosure of their misdeeds might cost them future employment, or even provoke them to harm themselves. But this was something else we were being compelled to notice: 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: “THE WAYS IN WHICH WE WERE STILL CONDITIONED TO WORRY FOR THE MEN, but somehow not to afford the same compassion for women — their families, their feelings, their future prospects — even in a reckoning that was supposed to be about us, not them.” [emphasis my own] (edited) 15h

This is an amazing book and I‘d probably have to say it‘s one of my favourite! It shows how hard to it could be living in the war and not having the right to vote. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I hope you enjoy it if you read it!

I am a #booknerd and embrace solitude and quiet. i love the artwork but am only giving this popular poetry ⭐️⭐️ I was moved by #thehurt but the remaining sections were obvious or maybe I‘m too old to appreciate her writing 🙏
