March is Women's History Month, and while on the surface that seems like a wonderful thing—who doesn't love celebrating women's accomplishments?—it also means that plenty of companies that ignore women the rest of the year are coming out of the woodwork to rack up points by declaring themselves great feminist allies.
Here at Siren, our feminism is built into our mission 365 days a year, so we've decided to create our own campaign that takes things one step further. As the only feminist dating app founded by women of color, we've declared March #WomenMakeHistoryMonth: a time to not only celebrate the accomplishments of diverse women in business, media, and culture, but also shine a light on ways we can all be more supportive of the women who are creating history right this minute.

Media maven Arianna Huffington—whose newest venture Thrive Global has been in the spotlight for its positive approach to sustainable productivity—kicked off the month of March as Question of the Day host on Siren. This week she is followed by Feminist Frequency's Anita Sarkeesian, a culture critic whose brilliant deconstructions of women in pop culture narratives led Time Magazine to name her on its 100 most influential people list and earned her an honorary PhD from the New School.
We couldn't be more thrilled to partner with these extraordinary women who are shaping the future with their outstanding vision, drive, and relentless audacity, and we'd love to partner with you as well! Use the hashtag #WomenMakeHistoryMonth to share your inspiring stories with us and download Siren for iPhone/iPad orAndroid now to respond to Anita's questions and make connections with other like-minded, progressive individuals.
