Submit your story

We want to hear from you! It doesn’t matter if you are part of an awesome organization that empowers women to do more, or just thinking about the next game-changing idea this country needs – we want to know how your organization is working to change tomorrow.

We want to amplify the work your organization is doing by publishing guest blogs on our website and giving you a shout out on social media!

WHAT should I write?

  • Be bold. We want to celebrate what has been done for women so far and we want your voice to shine. This could be celebrating a milestone accomplishment within the movement or highlighting an organizer who embodies your mission.
  • Make it action oriented. We all know the problems, let’s talk about the solutions. We want to create an engagement approach that celebrates and enables microactions. We’re all about “The Top 5 Ways to Change *BLANK*” type blogs.
  • Be you. Even if you’re writing on behalf of your organization, let your voice shine through in the writing. We want to inspire more women to get involved and your story can do just that.
