Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street #OccupyWallStreet


A lot of fantastic media has been created about the "Occupy" movement. I was watching one video in particular and commented to a friend, "Wow, seeing all those super smart hot chicks at the protest makes me want to be there." He replied, "Hmmm... Yeah, let's go with that."

We instantly went to Tumblr and made hotchicksofoccupywallstreet.tumblr.com. Our original ideas were admittedly sophomoric: Pics of hot chicks being all protesty, videos of hot chicks beating drums in slow-mo, etc. But when we arrived at Zuccotti Park in New York City, it evolved into something more.

There was a vibrant energy in the air, a warmth of community and family, and the voices we heard were so hopeful and passionate. Pretty faces were making signs, giving speeches, organizing crowds, handing out food, singing, dancing, debating, hugging and marching.

It made me want to pack my bags and pitch a tent on Wall Street. And it's in the light that we created this video.

And we hope it makes you want to be there too.

EDIT: Apparently a lot of controversy has erupted online from people passionately opining (among many things) that this is sexist, offensive, and dangerously objectifies women. It was not my intent to do that and I think the spirit of the video, and the voices within, are honorable and inspiring.

However, if you disagree with me, I encourage you to use that as an excuse to create constructive discussions about the issues you have. Because, to be honest, any excuse is a good excuse to bring up the topic of women’s rights.

  2. The movement is always the good idea. I am so hoping to start hearing this generation start voicing solutions to what they feel is the problem. Nothing changes without solutions. Being the change only works when you also be the solution. video was nicely done.

  3. The lack of a vehicle to provide solutions is one of the problems. The political process has been hijacked and now lies in the hands of a few. Fixing this will not be easy given the Supreme court has already restricted the ability to regulate campaign finance reform. The two major parties have rigged the election laws to make it very hard for a third party. etc etc etc.

    The list is long, but the bottom line is that the current corporatocracy is not working for the 99 percent. The status quo will have to change before anything significant changes.
