If you’re feeling like you’re not sure how to proceed as a feminist in the coming years, we love this idea from New York City Art Director, Kindra Meyer…
MONEY IS POWER. So here is my plan thus far…
Make as much money as I possibly can over the next four years, and have as much of that money be paid to me by straight white men.
Give much of that money to businesses that are owned by oppressed groups. I am working on ideas of how to be able to have an overlay on Yelp or Google to identify which businesses are run by women, minorities and LGBT so we can purposefully choose to support them. (If you have ideas/connections on this please reach out to me.)
I also plan to give and raise thousands a year to organizations who will be on the front lines as this administration tried to strip our human rights.
One of the reasons the pay gap exists is that women are not taught how to invest, I want to help change that. And will be working with some boss bitches like Anita Nedeljkovic on starting a monthly investing group to help educate ourselves on the stock market and beyond to grow our financial and mental wealth. Eventually sharing that knowledge with young women to get them investing from the time they reach adulthood.
The point is trying to get our share, and profit all we possibly can, so we can sink that money into places it’s truly needed. And shut out the corporations that are benefitting from all this hate.
Everyone has their path this is just my first attempt at thinking about actions I will take moving forward.
What are your plans on how to make a difference as a feminist?
