In these uncertain times, everything hangs in the balance. Everything. Our health, safety, job security, liberty, different peoples’ place in society — the list goes on. Which is why it’s all the more important for us to uphold and celebrate the progress we’ve made throughout the decades, lest we forget how and why we got to where we are in the first place.
And so before this year’s Women’s Month ends, to remind ourselves why we need to commemorate this, we asked some of our favorite women artists to show us what it means for them to be a woman today. In some aspects we are closer to true equality than ever before, but there is still a lot of work to be done and progress to be made — in gender pay gaps, in representation, in trans rights, in a woman’s right to choose. And in case you forgot, being a feminist is not only for the benefit of women. We all have a part in this.
