Our Bodies, Our Minds: The Women's March Special
NBC News

January 20, 2017 a historical day for America. You might’ve ecstatically set your alarm to watch the 45th Presidential Inauguration from start to finish. On the other hand like many people did (people that I know), you might’ve chosen to skip this one out, in hopes that Ashton Kutcher’s PUNK’D squad was going to show up any second saying “Hey America, you just got Punk’d!” Regardless of your views on this matter and whether you like it or not, we do have a new President.

Not going to lie, I wish I was in Washington D.C right now though… no, not because I wanted to go celebrate this inauguration, but because I would be getting ready to attend the Women’s march in Washington D.C. This march on January 21, 2017 might actually turn out to be one of the biggest protests in history!

When I mean this is going to be big, it’s not an exaggeration. The list of speakers and performers has been released and it’s everything you’d expect. The event organizers and officials are expecting 200,000 people to D.C to attend this historical march. This march was the idea of a retired Hawaii attorney, the genius of it all is Teresa Shook. She created this even after watching the results from the election on Nov.8.

With the women’s march happening, you can expect all sorts of women from around the country to unite. With so many women attending I know for a fact, we will see some of the most beautiful, lively and artistic women of our nation. I’m all for feminism and women power, add a little art to that and you have some of the loudest pieces of art out there.

In preparation to the Women’s march, I’ve seen online, social media, and many websites some dope work of art that has been created for the women’s march. Art can speak louder than words and it can also be the best form of revolution and rebellion.

Checkout all the kickass artwork that has been made in honor of the Women's March! It's so inspiring to me and so it should be to all women out there. We need to embrace each other instead of tearing each other apart.

Our Power

This week I've been working on this painted denim project, as it's been something I've wanted to do for a long time. Tomorrow I'll be going to the Women's March in Philadelphia in solidarity with my sisters and allies. @womensmarch As a woman of color, I'll let my voice be heard and let our oppressors know that we're here and we are NOT leaving. Fabric paint & acrylic on denim that I thrifted last weekend. Wearable political statements for under $20! ✌🏽 #WhyIMarch #WomensMarch #Philadelphia #WomensMarchPhiladelphia #MyBodyMyChoice #myart #denimjacket #painteddenim

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

5163

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.

Summertime is ideal for more than just hanging out and binging your favorite TV series with your friends. Although summer does bring rain and thunderstorms which is perfect for those binging days, take advantage of those nice and sunny days. There is so many opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the season before the snow starts to come back. Here are 25 interesting dates that are doable almost anywhere for any age.
