This year, we asked “how” more than ever.

With all of the unsettling changes that occurred, we tried to grasp how we ourselves could wield some power over the events that were unfolding. In a lot of ways, we did. The election of Trump was met with the swift mobilization of the Pink Pussy Hat army, the lecherous actions of Weinstein (and all of the others) resulted in #MeToo’s Silence Breakers being named Time‘s Person of the Year. We learned that the world is more divided than ever before, but it gave us strength to rise up. We lost some of our brightest, yet hope springs eternal

All that being said – we’re not that bummed to see 2017 go. In with the new!
