Let's get this #WomensMarch started

Today we're kicking off #WomensMarch, the twice-makes-it-a-tradition followup to last year's excellent #JulyByWomen project. It's a month long project to encourage women in the Metafilter community to feel comfortable posting more often, or even for the first time, and if you'd like to participate, it's easy: just put together a post, and tag it with "WomensMarch" and "MonthByWomen".

And if you're a little nervous or just don't know where to start, don't worry: a bunch of generous folks have spoken up in the Metatalk thread to offer mentoring, collaboration, post ideas, and just general support for whoever wants it.

Last year's #JulyByWomen was a really positive, and really successful, community-organized initiative, and led to a huge variety of interesting posts and lots of first-time and haven't-in-a-while posters (and even some brand new members!) getting involved. We're happy it went so well, and we're excited to return to the idea this month and make #MonthByWomen a part of the Metafilter community tradition.
