Happy Pride Month to everyone celebrating! 🌈This week, we wanted to share an incredible book written by Audrey Lorde titled “Sister Outsider.” The book consists of a collection of fifteen essays and speeches. Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. While it highlights challenges faced by minority groups, it offers powerful messages of hope and optimism. **Credits to artist Betsy Stromberg for the book cover**Sarah McBride’s book titled “Tomorrow will be Different” is a heartbreaking and empowering story about love and loss and a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community’s battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. Throughout the book, McBride emphasizes the importance of never saying that “there’s only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live.”**Credits to Rachel Willey for the book cover art** On June 29th, we will hold a workshop during our Virtual Women's Lounge with guest speaker Vanessa Stoby to discuss ways we can be better allies to the LGBTQ+ community and the nature of gender and sexuality. This event is open to everyone who identifies as a woman! Click here to join: buff.ly/2QtjcKkLet us know if you have any book suggestions that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. ❤️💜💛💚💙 #NYWCempowers ...
