Re-sharing yesterday's #SignOfResistance because of a name mix-up that the artist has since corrected: this is for the women who made history Tuesday night, and for the women who will make history in 2018. We're just getting started. This is only the beginning. 🎨: @quietcreature

Ashley Bennett, a 32-year-old psychiatric emergency screener from Egg Harbor Township in Atlantic County, NJ, decided to run for public office after showing up to a freeholder meeting to protest comments made by Freeholder John Carman mocking Women’s March participants. On Tuesday, she knocked Carman off the board. Congrats Ashley!

75% of Puerto Rico is still without electricity. It’s time to cancel the debt. We are so proud to have had Thay-Ling Moya Pérez and Nelini Stamp (pictured here) speak on a panel about the struggles of Puerto Rican women along with Rosa Clemente and moderator Stephanie Llanes at the #WomensConvention over the weekend. Puerto Rico, we are with you, always. #PROnTheMap
