I HATE TRUMP!
I HATED HIMSELF.
But for the next four days, we’d be stuck in the middle of a #IWantedMyDaughters, a hashtag that is part social justice, part anti-bullying and part viral video, the work of one very smart and articulate person.
This is a story of the internet, and the people who made it possible.
It’s also a story about how it all began, and what it means to be a woman on the internet.
#IWantMyDaughter”The hashtag is named after the girl whose name is on the back of every T-shirt, t-shirt cover, or T-shirts sold at the beginning of November.
It is a response to a series of incidents that occurred in November 2017.
The internet is the new hotness. “
We’ve been on a lot of social media.
The internet is the new hotness.
It has the power to bring out the best in us,” says Rebecca Smith, a professional speaker, activist, and creator of the #LoveHateTyranny movement.
“And it’s also really powerful for women to connect with people from different walks of life and be able to have a space where they can share their experiences, to talk about things that they care about, to connect in real time.”
Smith says that she and her friends were in the midst of an online whirlwind of the holidays when they were confronted by a man who made a sexist remark about their appearance.
He then sent a number of tweets that targeted women and the LGBTQ community.
“I felt like my life was on the line,” Smith says.
“He could say whatever he wanted, but I was like, ‘No.
I’m not letting him do that.’
So, I started doing things.
I started talking to people, I began talking about the bullying I experienced.
I even started writing articles about it.”
The man eventually deleted the tweets and apologized.
But, in his attempt to distance himself from Smith, he also retweeted her article, which included a graphic of Smith with the words “I’m proud to be white and proud of my body,” and a photo of the two of them with their hands on each other.
This made the hashtag viral.
Smith says she wanted to take a stand against racism, sexism, and misogyny in the digital age.
“It’s hard for people to understand, and I think it’s hard to see what they’re seeing.
It makes me feel so vulnerable and like, well, it’s happening,” Smith tells BuzzFeed News.
“So I felt like I had to say something, and so I did.
And then I started seeing a lot more women in my life who are coming forward and sharing their stories.”
The #IIWantsMyDawn was inspired by Smith’s experiences as a transgender woman.
Smith, who identifies as a woman, began transitioning at the age of 15, and now works as a fashion designer, and is a mother to three boys.
In November 2017, she was the first trans woman to be named a fashion design director for a major fashion brand.
“When I got the job, I felt really honored.
I thought that was an awesome honor to have, and it just shows that this movement can really take off,” Smith said.
But she’s also concerned about how the #iWantsMYDawn hashtag has become the focal point of the movement, especially with President Donald Trump taking a very aggressive stance against women’s rights.
“The President has started calling trans people and people of color and people who have transitioned and saying, ‘You’re going to be targets for discrimination,'” Smith said in an interview.
“In the past, it was just a hashtag.
Now it’s a movement.
I hope that people are taking a moment to think about what it is they want to do, and why it’s important to them, and that they’re not just going to give up on the issue.”
It’s been more than a year since the #WomensMarch, but the #WomenMarch has gained momentum with women across the globe.
According to the organizers, the movement started as a way to demonstrate solidarity with the women’s movement, but has evolved into a celebration of gender equality.
“This is our movement, and we’re here to show that women are human beings too,” says Lauren Silverstein, the president of the Feminist Majority Foundation, a group that has been working on gender equality issues for years.
“To me, #WOMENMarch is about being a part of a larger movement.
We’re here because we believe women deserve the same rights as men.
We want to show women that we are human and that we have the capacity to fight for the same things that men do.”
But how does the hashtag get to be such a buzzword
