#metoo: What's Next in Activism and Healing with Tarana Burke will be Sunday, 2/18! Link to Facebook event is in our bio. Tarana Burke created the Me Too movement in 2006 to encourage young women to show solidarity with one another. It went viral this year after actor @milano_alyssa used the hashtag #metoo. “It is powerful, but it’s soft. Me Too can be a conversation starter or it can be the whole conversation.” TIME recognized Burke by naming her one of the Silence Breakers, TIME’s Person of the Year, for speaking out about sexual assault and harassment.

Sarah Mason .. 2011 @Time magazine cover and person of the Year .. OCCUPY PROTESTER. Ted Soqui .. a photographer for @LAWeekly during the November 17 , 2011 "NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION" March .. took the iconic image later produced into the cover art and limited edition print by Shepard Fairey through Obey Giant .. for Time magazine. She famously said "there's no curfew on the 1st amendment" .. representing 99% of Americans 🇺🇸🕊🇺🇸 Sarah was 25 .. described as statuesque with a presence to capture other's ear and help lead the pop-up encampment at the center of Bank of America Plaza in Los Angeles .. in support of OCCUPY WALL STREET. She was arrested the day this image was captured .. with the bandana soaked in vinegar to keep present and standing against tear gas or pepper spray. Asked why .. she said "I am here because I feel a moral obligation to speak out against injustice." I simply remind everyone where our beginnings originate from .. creating now #metoo#timesup and #timesupnow. I believe , as a genuinely unbiased independent voter and mind .. a wrong poorly conceived tone of exclusion of men is occurring. Believe what you wish. Express freely always .. absolutely. But continued strengthening of a movement wanting equality .. with a message we will do so alone as one .. while silencing the pain and suffering of men .. ultimately diminishing our stories and our support .. I will simply , as will millions of others , no longer support even #womensmarch for the persistent overwhelming message wanting our voice silenced .. but .. asking for our support .. from the background in the back away from everyone. Sarah Mason didn't ask that .. @RoseMcgowan didn't ask that .. why are y'all ? ☯☯☯ Please look up the definition of exclusion 📙 #riseupasone#exclusionisbullying#enoughisenough#treatpeoplethewayyouwanttobetreated#selmablair#timemagazine#metoomovement#timepoy
A little look at my cubicle: I like to add inspirational, brightening phrases and images to its dreary grey walls! The first image are four postcards I picked up at the Kate Spade store in City Center, and the second is my “favorites corner,” filled with images of my favorite people or moments at TFK. Included: images of Lin-Manuel Miranda and Taylor Swift (my favorite humans), momentos from past holiday parties, a poster from my favorite musical, the #timepoy cover because women rule, and my badges from 3 years at MLB All-Star FanFest, my favorite work project (we sponsor a booth at the event!).
Throwback photos w/ some incredibly empowering ladies in honor of the @womensmarch nationwide. 💪🏼 To all of the #women who have fought for #equality & #equalrights, to the women who have helped raise me into who I am today, & to the future women leaders... #thankyou! Here’s to the 2017 #timepoy. ✊🏼 Here’s to all of the #silencebreakers that speak out against sexual misconduct. From the #womensmarch a year ago to the #metoo campaign... Sexual harassment/assault is being taken more seriously because of the brave & powerful Army of Survivors. To anyone who has ever had to deal w/ sexual misconduct, I stand w/ you, & will utilize my privilege in this fight against the current rape culture & misogyny that exists anywhere. To anyone who has ever felt buried by the pressures of society, may you realize that you are a seed & your potential is unlimited! Keep on growing ❤️🙌🏽 #timesup#womensmarch2018#heforshe#feminist#womenempowerment#consent#icantkeepquiet#togetherwerise#instagood#instalove
#throwbackthursday but still VERY current. #support 💙 Dana Lewis and Crystal Washington are two of the seven current and former employees of New York City's Plaza Hotel who filed a suit against the hotel for “normalizing and trivializing sexual assault” among employees there. "It's going to affect you whether you report it or not. So you might as well get justice and you might as well report it for yourself, for other people that may be going through it. Speak out, have a voice. That's what I'm doing," says Washington. (Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, which owns the Plaza, said it takes remedial action against harassment when warranted.) TIME honored the Plaza Hotel Plaintiffs as the Silence Breakers, TIME's Person of the Year, for speaking out about sexual assault and harassment. Read the full story on TIME.com.
