Women Take To NYC Streets To Support #SheWillBe Movement

By Posted on 5 1 m read

NYC is taking a big step. Today women stood outside on the steps of New York City Hall with signs to cheer on the new Young Women Initiative that was put into place today by the state of New York. The initiative assists women with access to health care, jobs and education and emphasis on how gender, race and sexual identify play a major role in these opportunities for many women.

The stem of this came from the digital campaign’s  hashtag #SHEWILLBE that was started to give young women a platform to express their needs and wants. These young women took the initiative and got the chance to start something that will not only impact their lives but the lives of other women in their city. Hopefully, this initiative will spread throughout other states to bring awareness of the needs of women.
