IWD 2021

March is Women’s History Month. Join us all month long to celebrate and honor women*, past and present! We’ve got a list of events on how we’re going to celebrate at SAVE. We hope you will find one or all ideas below that resonate with you.

*As we welcome this month, we acknowledge, include and celebrate all femme identifying, non binary folx and stand in solidarity.

Every year we gather to celebrate the talented women in our community with cultural performance, spoken word, skit, dance, or song. This year will be no different! On this day, we will share performances on SAVE’s FB and YouTube Channel to celebrate the amazing women, ALL DAY LONG! Follow us so that you can watch the performances with us.

Mondays: #Herstory

Every Monday in March, we will share a story of a lesser-known woman who changed history, on our social media. Share these inspiring stories with your social circles! For the first Monday, we remember Pauli Murray, a Black, queer, feminist trailblazer who was at the front of the Civil Rights Movement and raised the first conversation on intersectionality!

Wednesdays: #AShortWalk

Every Wednesday in March, we will share SAVE’s podcast, A Short Walk, highlighting voices of change, shaping the IPV movement. This Wednesday tune into our podcast to hear from SAVE’s founding mothers, Iris Nicholson and Pauline Weaver.

Fridays: #MovementMakers

Join us every Friday in March, on Facebook at 11 AM, as we livestream a conversation with young leaders of today, highlighting changemakers and movement makers! This Friday we will be in conversation with Audin Leung, co-founder and Political Director of Free the Period. They are an IPV survivor and instrumental in producing the Menstrual Equity for All Act 2021, which would make free menstrual products available for nearly all public buildings in CA.
