Macon named one of "Best Cities for Feminists"

Macon named one of "Best Cities for Feminists"

Macon was named one of 11 "Best Cities for Feminists" by Estately.

They note Macon's Wesleyan College as one of the reasons.

The site says the cities great for feminists are places that "support inclusive dialogues, has at least a small undercurrent of inclusion, and the potential for new grassroots movements to take hold."

Do you agree with Macon as a selection for the site's list?
