Happy Friday Hollas! We wanted to let you in on a little secret of ours. Emily May, Co-founder and Executive Director of Hollaback! New York , one of the leading activists for women’s movements in the United States, was recently featured in Rachel F. Seidman`s book, “Speaking of Feminism,” Today’s Activists on the Past, Present, and Future of the U.S. Women’s Movement. Let’s face it, women’s movements have changed our perception about gender and politics across the globe. This book provides an in-depth understanding of the various forms of activism, its development and impact. May has not only created an innovative platform on educating the public on the issues of harassment, but accessible and effective tools to address the problem. Emily May has a tremendous connection to her work and the drive she has, allows her to create equality across the spectrum. Congratulations Emily and continue to pave the way for gender justice.
