This includes opening dialogue during class, and will include outside events, including at least one the students designed themselves.

There are 3 big march events scheduled in this one month period – MLK March, Raleigh Women’s March and Rally and the HKonJ March and Rally.

This is a fun run/walk/renunciation of the patriarchy.
It’s been quite a year, dealing with a federal administration in chaos, and with our own legislative leadership in NC. On the other hand, women are rising up! Joining existing organizations doing the work, like National Organization for Women, and making their own unofficial groups to make change. And the #MeToo movement has been a catalyst for long overdue recognition of how widespread Sexual Harassment is.
Women Organizing for Wilmington (WoW) is participating in the downtown Wilmington Winter Holiday Parade. They have a float and banners, too!
WoW writes, “we want women to join us in walking behind the puppet float—*WEAR A SNOWFLAKE COSTUME*. We’ll pass out candy and/or bubbles along the way, and we will have our own holiday carols to sing! This is a family event, so we’re choosing our messages in the holiday spirit of commUNITY, but we’re showing up in solidarity—all lit up!”
So join in if you can, preferably dressed up as a snowflake.
