As a way to celebrate the end of Women’s History Month, we put together an event focused on celebrating the strength of women. 

What being being a woman means to me:

“To have the tenacity and resilience to overcome challenges with grace that men can’t even fathom”

“Having to buy products like tampons and pads, and having to buy gendered products priced higher than mens’ products”

“Having the option to have kids if, and when, I want”

“Having a superpower”

“To have the rights to what I do with my own body”

“You’re expected to stay home with the kids”

“You’re expected to endure pain for a man’s pleasure”

“You’re expected to wear makeup”

“That you’re just as strong and capable as a man”

“You’re expected to appear feminine, and dress up”

“We’re expected to be emotional, but when we are emotional they just blame it on our period”

“We’re not expected to be athletic”
