Mar 2, 2014 - BK Nation Call for Submission of Short Videos of Native Women & Girls of All Ages for Women’s History Month
“Today a female will give birth, a female will be raped, a female will laugh, a female will awake. In light of Women’s History Month in March, we are here to honor the female, women and girls on this planet–in all their hardships, triumphs, and successes. The females who hold our hands and who replenish our mental ache. The females who continue to love in spite of it all, and the females who paved the way for equality and for belief in the greatness of woman and of girl power. Please join us throughout this month as we listen and engage with the voices of both males and females, as we analyze what it would be like if women and girls ruled the world.”—The BK Nation Editorial Team

My brilliant and powerful women friends:
BK Nation, via our website www.bknation.org, is doing a special Women’s History Month package throughout March. We are asking women and girls of all backgrounds and ages to use your cellphone or computer video camera and make a short video no longer than 30-60 seconds. Say your first and last name, where you are from, and then complete this sentence: “If women and girls ruled the world….” Once done please email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Thank you so much!
We would love to get Native sister voices of all ages and humbly request submissions. Please send by March 15th, 2014.
