I missed my deadline for my Friday post, partly because I was busy trying to setup my holiday sales and items on my Hourglass Heaven store & partly because I've had a hard time writing this week's post.
I was going to write a MeToo post and I found myself rewriting it, not knowing what to say, not knowing which events to list...and then thought of more. :(
I'm also a very private person and I wasn't really sure if I wanted to share. I thought, maybe I won't, that was last month that people were posting lots of stories anyway...maybe I shouldn't bother.
Then I got an email from The University Women's Club of Vancouver, saying that this is the seventh day of the #16DaysofActivism.
The email mentions that "Social media movements like #METOO and #MyActionsMatter are important for increasing awareness and showing support." So yeah, I will finish that MeToo post, talking about some of the issues I've faced.
For this week, I agree with UWCV in encouraging you to be part of the solution. Get involved by attending a local #16Days event or committing to one of the CFUW 16 recommended actions.
I also wanted to share this Instagram account I found today @catcallsofnyc and the #stopstreetharassment campaign. I wonder if every city needs this until this kind of behavior changes.
