April 7, 2021 is National Girl, Me Too Day! On this day, we recognize the hardships of the female experience by showing appreciation to women everywhere. This can be done in many ways– a social media post, a letter, a phone call– any way that is uplifting towards women around the world. To go one step further, you can volunteer or donate to women’s organizations.
National Girl, Me Too Day was established by the non-profit organization, Girl, Me Too. This day is celebrated to “promote the healing, empowerment, and education of women and young ladies while encouraging healthy relationships amongst all women,” as their website states. With the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women publishing a study that revealed 97 percent of women in the U.K. have experienced sexual harassment, it is important that we acknowledge the gender inequity in our society. Support the women in your life by getting educated on the struggles they face.
