The first #WeAreAllWomen chat took place on October 7, 2014. The topic was “What we all have in common as women.” It was a fast paced, exciting Twitter chat, and our hashtag (#WeAreAllWomen) was trending by the time the chat was over. We had a good representation from all women, TLBS (Trans, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Straight). This chat was a wonderful learning experience; we discussed many different facets of womanhood, including HIV care, inclusive language, misogyny, violence against women, and more. We marked the beginning of using #TLBS (now #TLBAS to include Asexual women), and “trans and non-trans women” to replace “women and transgender women” and other phrases that are less inclusive. See below link for the full conversation.
