Does someone you know care about equity for women and girls, but hasn’t had time to “get connected” to the conversations that are working for a better future? Consider one of these gifts for Mother’s Day:
- Membership in the AAUW Tar Heel Branch (surprise!) — the idea of this branch is that it meets the needs of its members and limits its activities to those that the members really want to support. It can provide a busy woman with information on AAUW issues in a way that fits her schedule. Let us know that this is a Mother’s Day gift an we’ll send a special acknowledgement. ($60 through 6/30/2010).
- A subscription to Ms. Magazine (aka a “membership” in Ms.) This premier journal of feminism addresses international and domestic news articles and opinion pieces. ($25)
- A connection to MomsRising. This relatively new organization, one that partnered with AAUW on the Feminism 2.0 conference, is admirably connecting motherhood and activism. A group in the Triangle will be one of its first local outposts. ($0 for now)
Connect your daughter, mother, sister or friend!
And save this list for Father’s Day, too — if you’ve raised a feminist son, consider acknowledging that!
