Welcome to #RWU

RWUWelcome #RWU, or Resistance Women Unite! We represent a unification of select female leaders from various Resistance Groups on Twitter. Our goal is to advocate and advance the visibility of any and all issues that affect women. From birth control to equal pay, we will feature all aspects of a woman’s life.

#RWU was born through the collaboration of three Resistance Group leaders on Twitter, “Olivia Pope” (@oliviaresists), “Daenerys” (@DaenerysResists) and “THE Princess” (@TheSWPrincess).  These leaders represent #ScandalResists, #GoTResists and #GeeksResist, all resistance groups born and thriving on Twitter whose members assume alternative identities for anonymity. As close Resistance allies on Twitter, the leaders provided support to each other in sharing news and facts to combat the many issues the Resistance is fighting.

With the #WarOnWomen flaring up, the leaders decided to band forces together to increase the impact of their online activism, which led to the creation o f#RWU, Resistance Women Unite. Their goal is to connect various Resistance Groups, activists, politicians, celebrities and the American people to finally end the war against women that we have been fighting since birth. Our dream is to live in a world where we can stand side by side with men to guarantee equal rights for all women and defeat sexism once and for all.

Through our blog, you will read a variety of people, from “Alt Characters” to celebrities and politicians to real life men and women! We will provide opinion pieces from various authors and share real life news, as it is happening, to keep you up to date on the #WarAgainstWomen. Make sure to check us out on Twitter at @ResistanceWomen and use the hastag #RWU!

International Day of the Girl Child

October 11th is the International Day of the Girl Child. The UN Women website says:

This year, International Day of the Girl (11 October) will focus on the theme, “EmPOWER girls: Before, during and after conflict“.

Every 10 minutes, somewhere in the world, an adolescent girl dies as a result of violence. In humanitarian emergencies, gender-based violence often increases, subjecting girls to sexual and physical violence, child marriage, exploitation and trafficking. Adolescent girls in conflict zones are 90 per cent more likely to be out of school when compared to girls in conflict-free countries, compromising their future prospects for work and financial independence as adults.

#RWU has decided to spotlight Malvika Iyer today. Please read about her extraordinary perseverance and accomplishments.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Day of the Girl!
