More Women Campaign – #morewomen
So, in politics, business, art, music and many other instances, women are grossly underrepresented in the positions of power; this is a fact. You can go back and forward about your opinions on feminism (the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men), but you have to admit that this has great implications for women.
With this in mind, Elle UK started the More Women campaign in October (#morewomen). If you follow UK celebrities on Instagram (male or female), you have probably seen this hashtag more than once on their posts.
It is only a matter of time before women fill more positions of power, but, until then, this kind of campaign helps us to dream and move towards this goal. Women are needed! I really believe this.
Anyhow, right now I am inspired by this campaign so I wanted to share it with you. Isn’t social media amazing? It provides a voice to those who didn’t previously have it. It creates community.
Here is the More Women Campaign video. Let me know what do you think, and have a great day!
What a great campaign! So often, it seems like women’s issues and women’s work is thought of as a niche group, when we make up more than half the population. Lately I’ve been reading almost only women authors (somewhat intentional, but I also happen to be more drawn to these books), and I refuse to see a movie that doesn’t have complex female characters. Part of what I love about blogging is all the other women bloggers getting their thoughts and work out there!
I agree with you, and I think social media is great to give a voice to those who weren’t heard before. I have been reading a lot of feminists books lately. Pretty good reads.
I’ve heard of this campaign. It’s amazing! And very motivating. There should be more girl bosses in this world.
I totally agree, and I think we are moving in that direction. It is just a matter of time!
