Watch, Listen, Read: A Forth-Approved Feminist media List / by Amanda Glandon

In celebration of International Women's Day and in observation of "A Day Without A Woman," we are compiling and sharing some of the feminist media that we turn to when we're searching for...something. Some sunny inspiration. Some real talk. Some educational resources. 

Here are the media that we see our sisters discussing and passing among one another.

We hope to make this Feminist Primer as inclusive and intersectional as possible. At the end, we include ways to share your faves with us.

Keep learning. Keep talking. Keep consuming and supporting feminist media. Keep fighting.
