On Saturday 21st of January we took part in one of the greatest manifestations ever of freedom, of love, of passion, of feminism.

We marched together with 100,000 other people in London and we meet some incredible men and women; we passionately voiced our contempt for a kind of politics that allows for unabashed misogyny and racism to feature in the public discourse.

What is most beautiful and impressive at the same time is that American women felt not only the solidarity of their London sisters, but that of thousands of other women around the globe…and

these pictures clearly stand for that solidarity.

Being immersed in such an enthusiastic and energetic atmosphere reminded us – as female entrepreneurs, as women in the art world, as mothers and sisters and daughters – to make feminism an everyday life commitment. Fight like a girl, always!
