A man who bragged about getting away with sexual assault was just elected to the highest office in the United States on a platform of building a border wall and banning Muslims from entering the country.

  • Write a letter to someone whose actions are hurting you or those you love.
  • Compose a message to someone who is hurting and let them know you have their back.
  • Write a eulogy to a missed opportunity to elect a female president in the U.S. or an ode to the global struggle to bring women into positions of power.
