Happy women’s day!! Continue reading “International Women’s Day”
I could talk about the election today and what a mess it has been but I think enough people are talking about it. I decided the only thing I wanted to mention is that I’m proud to see over 4 million people vote for Gary Johnson. I know that’s not even close to being enough but it was noticed. I’m so happy to know I was not alone. Today, I wanted to bring more light to sensitive subject. Continue reading “We are the Survivors”
Abuse is abuse no matter what form it comes in. I’ve seen it and been apart of it. I understand the fear and I understand even more the courage it takes to walk away and rebuild your life. I also know that you have to be incredibly brave to report it. Remember if he/she can do it to you, he/she can and probably will do it to someone else.

I’m a woman.
“You’re not lady like. You’re too girly. You can’t play sports. You can’t like video games. You’re too pale. You shouldn’t get your hands dirty. You should be in the kitchen. You have to have a child, it’s your job. You can’t just have one child, you need another one. You can’t wear men’s clothes. You can’t wear that, it shows too much. Your hair is too short. You can’t drive. You can’t actually be just friends with a male. No man will want you with your reputation. You’re just here for amusement. You’ll just get used again because you’re trash.” Continue reading ““Strong people define themselves; weak people allow others to define them.””
I started calling myself a feminist a few years ago. A few events in my life led me to believe that there is still very much a need for it. Sometimes we have to experience things for ourselves to really understand why it exists. I hate that we have gotten such a bad rep because of a few extremist that don’t fully understand why we believe what we do. Being a feminist is not supposed to be about hating men, or being better. It’s about wanting to be viewed as an equal. It’s about having a choice. Everyone is different and I don’t expect everyone to agree with my views. I am using this article to address some things that I’ve heard people say as to why we don’t need feminist and respond with why we really do. Continue reading “This is why I fight for Equality”
This is a day of celebration. It’s a day to be proud of who you are and how far we’ve come. It’s also a day to remember the struggles of our fellow women (and men who joined with them) who fought so hard for us to have the life that we have now . They didn’t back down and they never gave up. Those women live in us and help us continue our fight for full equality. They proved that with enough determination we can, and will be heard.
