Today’s the day! Dendrofemonology debuts on the National Mall.
We’re so grateful to be focusing on some light in these dark days: the importance of feminist history, women’s rights, trans rights, and reproductive freedom. The Art Newspaper just published a great article about the installation and activation here.
If you're joining us in DC, you can find the full 4-day schedule here. Note that Saturday's Abortion Rights Art Parade starting place has moved to the Capitol.
If you're joining us online, there are 3 ways to engage, with all info below: answer the interactive questions so we can add your perspective, send in videos of you doing the simple choreographed flash dance, and follow along on Facebook Reels and Instagram. We'll also send out highlights.
Answer Interactive Questions
We are making a short film based on the lines of the Feminist History Tree Ring, and we'd love for you to be part of it! Click on the link below for the full tree ring timeline. Then hold your phone horizontally, hit record, and answer any or all of the following questions:
1. What's a line on the tree ring that's meaningful to you? Why?
2. What's a feminist history milestone not on the tree ring that has helped pave the path for you? How so?
3. What do you hope is the next milestone in feminist history?
Join the Flash Dance in Person or Online
Join the cathartic flash dance to John Lennon's Imagine and Dee-Lite's Groove Is in the Heart, choreographed by Rena Marie Guidry, that you can learn below. Even if you won't be in DC, you can send a video of you doing the dance here and we'll include it in the film (note this is also the film submission page, but you can upload your dance video there). Here are videos to learn the moves:
Moves with music.
Dance moves without music first, then with music

Equal Rights Amendment Convening
100 years after it was first introduced in Congress, the Equal Rights Amendment is fully ratified and ready to be published. Take Action! Make your voice heard and demand that not one more year goes by without sex discrimination explicitly prohibited in the U.S. Constitution.
The Equal Rights Amendment: The Moment We Change Everything
On Friday, the ERA Coalition is hosting an intergenerational program that will include featured speakers, a panel, and an interactive session. This is a collective composed of prominent leaders in the sex equality space. Together we’ll listen, learn, strategize and co-create a unified vision for equality.
Other Happenings During the Activation
A Tour of Her Own and the National Women’s History Museum are leading tours on the Women’s History Shuttle, which will travel between the DENDROFEMONOLOGY installation and the National Women’s History Museum’s exhibition, We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC at the MLK Memorial Library. You can sign up here.
Artist Whitney Bradshaw will be inviting people to participate in her OUTCRY Scream Sessions -- an intersectional space of radical empathy where women are empowered to reclaim the revolutionary power of their voice while being photographed mid-scream. Sign up for the activation for ways to participate.
Artist Autumn Breon will be there with her Care-Machine, a powerful pink vending machine filled with banned books, abortion pills, and other feminist essentials.
Near the art installation of DENDROFEMONOLOGY, there will also be feminist books curated by author Rozella Kennedy who wrote Our Brave Foremothers.
As a Jewish woman who believes in peace and equal rights for all, I want to provide a healing Friday evening Shabbat candle lighting on the National Mall.
