Marching With Memes
International Women’s Day is an uplifting holiday. It’s a time when we look back at all the obstacles we’ve overcome and honor those who paved the way for us to continue our pursuit of equality. Securing those rights is no laughing matter, but those of us classified as Millennials and Gen Z liberally apply dark humor to our trauma because if we don’t laugh, we’ll cry.
Memes and pop culture references are our generations’ way of illustrating highly relatable points, and that doesn’t stop, even when protesting for something as serious as bodily autonomy and the right to choose. We usually think about The Today Sponge before Spongebob when talking about contraception, but we’re glad to have him on our side.
