New York City
FEMININE WEAPON DAY IS AN ANNUAL DAY OF FUNDRAISING, ART AND CONVERSATION TO SHOWCASE AND WITNESS OUR COLLECTIVE IMPACT IN THE WORLD.
During past Feminine Weapon Days
We’ve RAISED OVER $25,000 AND PROVIDED:
Eight shared computers,
Four teacher salaries paid,
And a year of education for 65 poverty-stricken children.
Plus musical programs for orphans in Nicaragua, Haiti and Costa Rica.
2018 GOAL: $30,000
Each Feminine Weapon Day has a celebration theme that acts as a call to arms and a call to action and demonstrates the awesome, life-changing power of a gathering of soul-sisters.
In light of the emerging responses to rampant sexual harassment of women across industries in America, this Feminine Weapon Day celebrates the men who get it right –
…the men who listen and change when we call them out on sexist thought and action
…the men who believe us when we tell them the truth about our experience
…the men who stand up for us when we’re under attack
…the men committed to being part of the solution
WE CHOOSE TO CELEBRATE MEN BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT
- Not all men are bad or wrong.
- Lasting solutions to gender inequality start with both women and men in conversation together.
- Ending gender inequality can only happen if Good Men who are friends, sons, brothers and fathers are at the table as advocates and allies; leading change alongside women who’ve thrived in spite of inequity, abuse and harassment.
- Recognizing and celebrating the bravery, courage, championship, and commitment of Good Men provides a map for men who want to do the same.
