March is Women’s History Month, where we celebrate the marvelous women that have helped advanced America to new heights over the years, ranging from Susan B. Anthony to Michelle Obama. Just like Black History Month, women should bask in the spirit of feminism and embrace their womanhood. Here’s three ways you can celebrate your inner feminista.
1) Set Up A Day With The Girls
I know it sounds like your regular bring your closest female friends together to catch up with each others lives. But instead, you can bring them together and treat yourselves to a day of pampering by going to a spa, going out to an event focused on women’s history and contributions to the world or to simply celebrate the accomplishments you and your girlfriends have made over the years as women.
2) DIY Crossword Puzzle
If you want to test yours and your girlfriend’s knowledge of prominent female figures than you can create your own crossword puzzle online for them to try out. Just go online to a crossword puzzle maker and create your own with as many powerful women as you can think of. You can even add this as a yearly routine to challenge your friends whenever you get together for women’s history month or on any day
3) DIY Feminist Pins
For the more fashion conscious women, you can opt for creating your own clothing pins inspired by powerful women. They can work as a great fashion statement or you can give them away as gifts to your female friends, and all you’ll need is a few shrinky dinks and sharpies to make it work.
What you’ll need: shrink plastic a.k.a shrinky dinks, permanent markers, glitter finish+gloss enamel finish, heavy duty glue, bar pins. Optional: Gold leaf/felt
Cut shrink plastic into four pieces and draw design of your choice. Place shrink plastic pieces on baking sheet and leave in oven according to instructions on packaging. Take out the oven and let cool, apply either glitter of gloss finish onto shrinky dinks. Apply glue onto bar pins and stick on the back of shrink plastic. Let stand overnight
