"If you put something up on Twitter or Facebook, it can go viral and get to way more people than you could've ever reached in old ways."
Also on the blog, two new weekly features have taken over on Tuesdays and Fridays. Find some of the week's women's news and featured blog pieces on Tuesdays. On Fridays, check out upcoming feminist events and great reads. Have a piece or an event to share? Let us know!
