#WomensMarch: Show Support and Get Involved

Posted on January 21, 2017

The 2017 Women’s March is for any person, regardless of gender or gender identity, who believes women’s rights are human rights. ELGL will show our continued support for women’s rights by highlighting our #13Percent series throughout the day on Facebook and Twitter. This post is one-stop shopping for articles written by ELGL members about women’s rights. We encourage you to share your favorite article from the #13Percent series by sharing it on social media or the comments section below.
