Young Activists

You better believe. . .

that there's another generation. . .

of intrepid young activists coming along.

    1. I think this is an important question many of us are asking ourselves at this point, s.c. But having been a skeptic myself, I have to say I've changed my mind. Apart from anything else, think of the education these young women were receiving in how to raise their voices and to make them heard. I also have to think they've come away from last Saturday's March with an enormous sense of solidarity with other women who feel the same way they do. These advantages alone convince me that events like these really do help. Makes me think of some advice I just read in the Washington Post from one who has made a study of marches like this one. The three keys to successful marches, this person wrote, are: organization, messaging and nonviolence.

  2. Yes I am sure that that old school looking at women is over by now.

  3. I agree, I think it's a good learning experience for these kids.
    Nice portrait photos!

  4. ...start them young, last night I went to hear Judy Collins, I was back in the '60s.

  5. It doesn't help the current source of the issue to grasp how much of a problem is, but he's already proven himself to be beyond reasoning with. It does give these young girls exposure to solidarity, and it is a very good learning experience.

  6. I really hope something comes from all of this work and effort.

  7. Setting an example for the young is good. Their voices will be heard too.

  8. Great and important posting this.
    There were a similar event in OSLO, BERGEN and TRONDHEIM. If it had be in Stavanger, I would have been there!
    This is so important, that I think people who have never been out in the streets, came out, all ages.

    1. I read about these "sister marches" being held around the world and I know I speak for every one in the movement when I say how greatly encouraged we've been by them
