The Feminist 5k is a fun run/walk/roll/renunciation of the patriarchy. The race celebrates social change with a spirit of resisterhood, and the distribution of free bananas. Proceeds benefit the Women’s Center of Wake County.
At its best, feminism is about equal dignity and respect – the simple idea that women are people and no person is less than any other. The current wave of progressive activism is a continuation of the fight for equal dignity for all, and an affirmation that if you show up to participate in something larger than yourself, you belong – and that our visibility matters.
If you’ve ever been to a 5k or any road race, you have seen support and inclusion in action. Even when you are at the back of the pack (speaking from experience here), everyone wants you to succeed, and they cheer you on. If you show up to participate, you belong.
