Hello out there! My name is Clare and I am a 23-year-old resident of Detroit.
I made the postgraduate move to the city after studying Political Science and International Studies in Madison, WI. I am not unfamiliar with the area though, as I grew up in “the burbs”. However, getting to know Detroit on a more intimate level has proved to be an exceptional adventure.
I am constantly humbled by Detroit, by the residents who inhabit this city, what they create, and what they choose to share. I am pleased to be able to report back on communities I inhabit, interact with, and those that inspire me. So, in this vein my first post will be about the community I am most familiar- the female community.
International Women’s Day is today, March 8, 2017, and there are strikes and marches planned nation wide. While this large scale show of solidarity is remarkable, for those with constraints -here are some great ideas to support women in Detroit today, this week, this month, or all year.
