My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a tremendous piece of media that deals with the themes of femininity in a way that is too seldom seen. Featuring a diverse cast of female characters that can each serve as role models, the show offers empowerment toward young girls and women everywhere. In the name of the feminine ideals of the show, The Round Stable will support the movement for gender equality with a week-long event launching on International Women’s Day on March 8th.
Beginning on March 8th, The Round Stable will publish new articles each day from a variety of writers that will deal with the theme of gender issues and equality, relating to My Little Pony. The content will aim to enlighten readers, as well as give people in our fandom an opportunity to voice their feelings about these issues in a number of topics.
The Round Stable invites anyone else interested to partake in this effort with us. Our fandom does not exist apart from these issues, and in the spirit of the show we all love, this is a worthwhile undertaking. We hope people will engage with these subjects on their own terms, and open up dialogue. Whether you can produce a video, art, writing, or just spread the word to people you know, we encourage you to join us in this endeavour.
