These Are the Feminist Valentines You Were Looking ForFebruary 09, 2016
Updated February 07, 2018: This post was updated for Valentine’s Day 2018.
With so much at stake for women and girls, what we really need this Valentine’s Day is support for gender equity. Raise your voice for equal pay, equity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and more by sharing our feminist valentines on Facebook or Twitter. Don’t forget to sign up for AAUW’s Two-Minute Activist tool to receive urgent emails or text alerts about gender equity issues.
Roses are red, violets are blue — we’re here to smash the patriarchy with you!
Feminism is for everyone, but my enthusiastic consent is just for you.
I know all you need is love, but I wouldn’t mind equal rights, too.
Sorry, but I can’t say I would never let the gender pay gap come between us.
Do you support gender equity? Please donate now to help us push for fair pay, equal educational opportunities, and workplaces free of discrimination.
At the current rate of progress, women will not achieve pay equity until the year 2119.
Make your voice heard on issues like equal pay and Title IX. We make it easy for you to contact your representatives.
Use our fun and accessible lesson plans to encourage girls to explore their interests in STEM.
