The past few months have been very busy for us in Equal + Empowered. School has picked back up again, which has meant that we’ve been able to spend less time than we’d like on this project, but we feel like we’re starting to get back on our feet again.
Coming up is the halfway point meeting with Philanthropy Tank, where we will meet with our mentors and present our accomplishments so far. We are looking forward to this and to reconnecting with the other participants in Philanthropy Tank, and we are excited to meet and connect with this year’s contestants.
In addition to this, we are seeking out new members! If you live in the Palm Beach County area and have been following this blog, consider emailing us at email@example.com with a little bit of information about yourself and how you feel you can contribute to the group. As always, our goals are to reach out to more and more people and to spread the message as much as possible, so everyone is welcome and we’re excited to get to know you.
Finally, and most excitingly, the submission form for our book is up and running! We are taking submission of art, poetry, prose (fiction and nonfiction), or any other physical medium that you can think of. As suggestions for what to submit, we ask that you consider talking about what feminism means to you, why you feel it is important, and instances of discrimination and sexism in your own life, but we encourage you to be creative and speak from the heart.
