We’re grieving . We’re taking stock of how we got here . We’re getting IUDs . As Clinton said  in her concession speech on Wednesday, these results are painful for a lot of people, and they will be for a long time. Mercifully, this country has long had organizations that fight, every day, to empower women and keep them safe. And while it is, of course, OK to simply be still and feel whatever it is you’re feeling, there are things you can do right now if you feel like you’re crawling out of your skin. Perhaps consider this list (by no means exhaustive) of pro-women, pro-girls groups that can always use support: American Civil Liberties Union fights to support reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, voting rights and free speech (to name a few).  Take action . Make a gift . Black Women’s Blueprint fights sexual violence against black women and girls.  Donate here .   Boys & Girls Clubs of America helps provide a safe place for boys and girls to learn and play through programs aimed at fostering leadership, health, the arts, etc.  Here are a few ways to give .

(If you shop through Amazon, you can also use AmazonSmile to donate a portion of the purchase price of whatever you buy to the Center for Reproductive Rights ― at no cost to you. Same goes for several other organizations on this list.) NARAL Pro-Choice America fights to protect women’s legal right to abortion services in this country.  Donate .  Volunteer .  National Organization for Women, the feminist advocacy group, has been fighting for the women’s rights movement since the 1960s, promoting reproductive rights and an end gender-based inequality.
