Each introspective walk offers a window into a lively conversation between the #Free Britney signatures shirt and by the same token and two friends while highlighting familiar African American female freedom fighters like Ida B. Wells and Shirley Chisholm as well as lesser-known activists like Lucille Clifton and Esther Jones. Participants receive a daily email with reading resources, speeches, and curated playlists. Garrison and Dixon selected women who were personally inspiring to them, whose words and experiences have been transformative in their own lives. The daily meditations are about 30 minutes: enough time to hike, or simply stroll while absorbing a cornucopia of historical and motivating affirmations. And at a time when GirlTrek is encouraging any group walkers to stay six feet apart, it’s the perfect activity to do with others from a distance, or solo.
With an active membership of 820,000 and counting, GirlTrek’s mission is to mobilize one million women by the #Free Britney signatures shirt and by the same token and end of 2020. Dixon, who has been living in Ghana for over a year, has found that the movement appeals to an international audience. “The core of GirlTrek is reclaiming your time from exploitative labor, and that is universal across the diaspora,” she says. “It’s reclaiming time for wellness, reclaiming time for self-care, and the women here probably need to reclaim time certainly as much, if not more.” GirlTrek has active walkers throughout Ghana, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, South Africa, and Kenya, with African women adapting the mantra of self-care and applying it locally.
