This is why we NEED feminism.
Oh hey, remember earlier this year when someone casually mentioned that more women are killed in domestic violence than soldiers are killed in war?
Shit, turns out that user wasn’t just fucking around. You just had to clarify your dates.
Fuck yeah, Ask Amy.

The search for the 234 teenage girls who were kidnapped from their school in the Nigerian city of Bornu while taking their exams on April 14 is still dragging on. At this time, it is assumed that they were taken by the Boko Haram—a local Islamic extremist group whose name means “Western education is forbidden”—sold into marriage, and some moved to the nearby countries of Cameroon and Chad.
Also, this Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a “Call to Action” Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.
This will be a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what’s happening and what we can do to help.
Plus, we’ll also be sharing an “action pack” of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation — and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

You can RSVP for the Google Hangout HERE
