Living together is not always easy. Adulting, in general, is not always fun, but when in a couple (and even more so if there are kids or other dependants) some of the chores multiply. It also multiplies the workforce, one should be thinking, but it doesn't always feel like it.
We have designed some easy activities to start conversations, show you what works in your couple, and how to create more of it.
must be losing my plot with all of this, but I was thinking that the biggest interview, the biggest celebrity and influencer at the moment is COVID19. The one hot search in google and the one everyone is talking about.

We have created a layback Film club that serves as an excuse to watch some feminist films and stop the endless routine of scrolling in Netflix overwhelmed by the excessive amount of choice!

If I am completely honest, I wasn’t sure what to write about today. Do I continue to write about feminism, as if nothing has happened? As if the world is the same today as it was 2 weeks ago, or even 5 days ago?

I have checked and patriarchy survival rate in a pandemic is a 100% so I am afraid our efforts are still needed.

We still need to celebrate International Women's Day with passion. We need to make all the angry demands, but also all the celebratory acts around it. We need to shine light on the problems, and sometimes it's not only about demanding but about highlighting, sometimes it is about giving a voice and the stage to women and letting them have a fair share of applause of their own. It is the combination of all the above, the demands, the positive discrimination, the safe spaces, the marches, the strikes... that will amplify the effect of the message.
