Ring the Beyoncé alarm, because today is International Women’s Day.
And it just so happens that it’s also the day our American sisters will go on a historic strike as part of “A Day Without A Woman.” Girl power is needed now more than ever, but attending the strike is a privilege because for many women, missing a day of work isn’t in the cards.
The 6ix will celebrate International Women’s Day in a march on March 11, starting at the University of Toronto’s Medical Sciences Building and ending with a fair inside Ryerson University’s Student Learning Centre.
Don’t feel ashamed if you can’t make it to a march. Luckily, there are still things you can do to to stand in solidarity, make your voice heard and feel empowered.

There has never been a better time to be a feminist than right now. With the rise of the Internet, the world is more connected than ever.

Check out three young Internet-based fems that we can’t get enough of.

Happy International Women’s Day! At FORA, we like to believe that every day is IWD. Either way, we’re taking the time today to help our fellow sisters become better women, allies and WARRIORS.
