⭐️AMAZING WOMEN MAKING HISTORY: Saru Jayaraman⭐️
.
After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, attorney Saru Jayaraman organized displaced World Trade Center workers and late co-founded Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which assists restaurant workers in mobilizing. Today, ROC has more than 25,000 worker members, 200 employer partners and several thousand consumer members in a dozen states.
.
The federal minimum wage for tipped workers remains only $2.13 per hour. Jayaraman encourages progress through policy changes, working with employers and consumers for increased wages, improved working conditions, workplace justice campaigns and cooperatively owned restaurants.
.
ROC provides comprehensive data about the U.S. restaurant industry. The median wage for restaurant workers is $8.89, and half of the workers live below the federal poverty line for a family of three, and nine out of 10 restaurant workers lack paid sick leave.
.
ROC findings have detailed pervasive wage theft, racial segregation and discrimination, and gender inequity. Ninety percent of women working for tips report unwanted sexual comments or behavior on the job.

OUR PICK: MEN EXPLAIN THINGS TO ME- Rebecca Solnit
.
This short collection of essays begins with Rebecca recalling a conversation in Aspen with a successful businessman who assumes her opinions are wrong simply because she’s a woman.
.
.
The book’s essays go on to range from the silly (like “mansplaining”) to the serious (gender equality). Solnit’s opinions about feminism, marriage equality, and our society are nothing less than bold (and totally necessary).

September is National Self Care Month!
-> Celebrate by being kind to yourself💕
.
🌟🌟this is a time to remind us that taking care of ourselves, first and foremost, is essential. Self-care is often neglected in our everyday lives. We all tend to put others' needs before our own and it is crucial to remember, that we cannot fill another's cup from our own empty vessel.🌟🌟
.

Self care activities and ideas posted on our story later tonight 🥰

AMAZING WOMEN IN HISTORY, Shirley Chisholm
.
.
Born in Brooklyn, Shirley Chisholm began her career as a teacher. In 1964, she became the second Black woman to serve in New York state legislature, and when political redistricting created a new Brooklyn congressional district in 1968, Chisholm defeated civil rights activist James Farmer to become the first Black woman elected to U.S. Congress.
.
She served seven terms in the House of Representatives, and helped found the Congressional Black Caucus and the National Women’s Political Caucus along the way. As a politician, she fought for equality for women and minorities, to eradicate poverty, and to end the draft and the Vietnam War.
.
.
In 1972, Chisholm also became the first woman and the first Black politician to make a bid for the presidency via one of the two major political parties. “I want history to remember me ... not as the first Black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a Black woman who lived in the 20th century and who dared to be herself,” she declared in an interview just before her death. “I want to be remembered as a catalyst for change in America.” —SF

Today we celebrate Malala Day 🧡🎉
.
.
Malala Day is commemorated on July 12, the birthday of Malala Yousafzai, to honour women and children's rights around the world.
.
On October 9, 2012, Malala was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen after she publicly advocated for the education of girls. Despite the attack, Malala soon returned to the public eye, fiercer in her views than earlier and continued her advocacy for gender rights. She founded the Malala Fund, a non-profit organization to help young girls go to school, and also co-authored a book titled I Am Malala, an international bestseller.
