The resistance is still fighting. Back in January, The Women’s March on Washington was a major success. (Even Antartica held a Women’s March!) Then, in February, the same group of powerful women organized a women’s strike, A Day Without Women.
Now, the Women’s March organization is back for more with an all-new event series. Introducing the Resistance Revival: A Restoration of Force.
Starting immediately, the movement will focus on both culture and protest. Monthly, the Women’s March will host song nights that will take place on a national level.
The first event will take place tomorrow, July 24th, in New York City.
According to the Resistance Revival’s official event page, The Resistance Revival is a reminder of the commitment to joy, power, and the overall movement. It’s all about celebrating art and music, which is something we can definitely get behind.
The group points out that music and protest have always gone hand in hand.
And it’s true. So many songs we know and love double up as protest songs. There are entire soundtracks that are actually about protest. Individual songs and countless references in current hits speak to something more important than a Billboard hit.
Music has always been more than a rhythm and lyrics. It has always moved the human spirit.
Even in the past few months (and years!), there have been songs that sound like simple bops, but are actually speaking out on the current state of our union. Way before the most recent election, music has always embraced present day and uplifted its listeners.
It has been six months since the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and around the world.
We have loved seeing the reminders from protesters all over social media.

We still have a long way to go, but we are so excited about the future of the Women’s March and the incorporation of music in the movement.
Let’s do this!
