We heart #HealthyLove!


Valentine’s Day can be a time for reinforcing problematic gender roles and relationship stereotypes. It can also be a time for questioning the social construction of romantic love and promoting healthier, more equitable ways of being.

That’s why we are loving this campaign by Canadian Women’s Foundation. The purpose of #HealthyLove is to reclaim Valentine’s Day by pledging to practice nonviolence in our relationships, and circulating these healthy messages throughout our social networks and the world. The really cool thing (besides the awesome concept) is that for each share, donor Margaret Newall will contribute $2 towards teen healthy relationships programs.

It’s easy to participate – just visit the website, choose an e-card, and share.

What’s your #HealthyLove commitment?
