"My ancestors participated in chain migration." ✊🏿 I found myself conflicted at the #womensmarchnyc this past weekend. While I realized the magnitude and importance of the march itself I couldn't help but be disappointed by the demographics of its attendees. Addressing the issues that face women today and the rest of society at large will require a concerted effort from every reach of our social fabric.
The majority of what we deem protest today is simply performance based activism; we've collectively settled into the mindset that reposting a video or using a hashtag is doing something. While exposure is important, if we're not following up our sentiments on social media with movement in the real world what have we really accomplished?
With Martin Luther King Day in the rear view mirror, Black History Month around the corner and Women's History Month in its wake we have no shortage of examples of what civil rights and social justice movements look like. Pushing the needle of change is slow, grueling, and often times thankless work and I think that's often lost on our generation as we've come to age in an era of instant gratification where our attention spans have dwindled down to six second @vines.
I for one, have not been doing enough to get involved and I plan on changing that moving forward by getting involved in my local community and doing what I can to affect and influence those around me. Hopefully you can do the same.
I'd be amiss if I didn't shout out Rachel (@1thatgotawayy) whose IG account provides me with an almost daily update on social issues, specifically surrounding feminism. Her recent posts and shared content on the march influenced some of the thoughts and feelings expressed in this post. FOLLOW HER! 🖤 #shamelessplug
A little history lesson: These are the hands of the royal women at the fort in Jodhpur who leapt into a fire so the Mogul invaders could not rape and pillage them. The women of these forts had such intense and forgotten history. We feel as an all Women’s tour company the importance of telling these lost stories! #purposefulnomad @purposefulnomad
