Women's History Month

Today begins Women's History Month, and I wanted to open a space for people to share resources — books, films, interviews, music, collections of poetry, art, blogs, speeches, links to events, anything explicitly associated with Women's History Month or any content created by women that has been meaningful to you.

Head to comments with your recommendations!

This year's theme is "Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women."

In honor of that theme, and to mark the beginning of this month, I want to reaffirm my commitment to intersectional feminism, as well as my commitment to supporting and amplifying the voices of women who are telling their stories, to regard them as authorities on their own lives and lived experiences, to listen to them and believe them, to respect women as the definitive sources of their own histories.

And I'm gonna continue to persist like the stubborn fucker I am.
