Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

A female euphemism to the word boycott. It means to abstain from or act together in abstaining from using, buying, or dealing with as an expression of protest or disfavor or as a means of coercion.

Although if the women organizations that used this term had any sense, they'd realize that 1) they're being just as sexist by using such wording and 2) the word boycott was coined after people protested Englishman Charles C. Boycott, and has nothing to do with gender relations.
