As a writer I feel obligated to post some thought-provoking and heartfelt prose about what it meant to participate in the Women’s March of Alabama in Birmingham yesterday. But I’m honestly at a loss for words.
On Saturday, January 21 thousands of women from across the country will gather for the Women’s March on Washington. News reports indicate that at least 1,200 buses have applied for permits to park at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC., on the day of the march. If you’re in the Birmingham area and unable to make it to Washington, D.C., you can stand in solidarity at the Alabama Women’s March scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21 at Kelly Ingram Park.
It’s time for women writers of Birmingham to have a ladies’ night out, or better yet, a BLOGGERS’ NIGHT OUT!
Step away from your computer for a few hours and come mingle with successful, emerging, and aspiring female bloggers in the Birmingham area at this free event set for Thursday, February 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wine Loft. (Men are welcome, too!)

Here are a few #ShopLocal ideas for you:
