Action Alert: Submit your photos, videos & posts of animals + feminism

Submit on our Tumblr or email us at youngfeminists at gmail dot com

Our event was posted on the One Billion Rising website. Please join us and share widely.

NOW’s First Virtual Chapter Young Feminists & Allies (YFA) was excited to join the One Billion Rising activities in NYC and beyond last year and is excited to participate in the justice campaign this year. 

As a virtual chapter, we want to augment our participation in local events across the country with online activism. We ask everyone to submit pictures and blog posts on how justice for sexual-assault and domestic violence victims and survivors intertwines with animals. 

Please share photos of you with your pets and posts discussing any or all of the below:

1. How animals can help heal individual survivors and communities through their love for us and our love for them

2. How animals can help us with our activism

3. How the victimization of animals is similar to how society victimizes women, indigenous people and other minorities

4. How we must look at interconnectedness of all forms of oppression to gain justice for all

Submission Guidelines:

1. Please do not include any graphic images of victimization of animals or people

2. Since we want to open this up to children, please do not include nudity, although we have nothing against it
