You can use social media to share quotes and stats about feminism. Like this one from Gloria Steinem: “A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.” You could also share eye-opening stats of how far women have come and how far we still have to go for equality. We’ve also collected a lot of quotes for your Instagramming pleasure!

+ Help an Org & Help Other Women
There are many orgs that help women’s rights, and you can help them by volunteering, donating, following them on Twitter, etc. You can even just start by researching them and learning more about what they do.
+ Support Each Other
Lupita Nyong’o has proven that she is all about using her celebrity power to support other women.
It’s important to point out sexism when you see it, but it’s also important to work on the positive instead of just attacking the negative. Support your (both figurative and literal) sisters. Support women in school and women with their careers. Help them reach their full potential, and it might help you reach your full potential, too!
