I wanted to write this post because I recently realized how a lot of the things I see as problematic have become normal to a lot of people. A lot of this stuff has become a part of a culture that hampers us from seeing the reality of our world. Let me know if you agree with any of these or leave some of your “everyday experiences” in the comments!

i’m a feminist and….

Instead of the saying, “I’m not a feminist, but”, I wanted to do a post on something more positive. Every day, people convince themselves that being a feminist is a bad thing because of the negative connotation it comes it. It’s taboo. people convince themselves that they don’t consider themselves to have that label. They actually are a feminist because the end of that phrase would be, I’m not a feminist, but I believe in the social, political, and economic equality between the genders. Today I’m talking about how feminists have their own identity and how you can be a feminist and still have character. Share what your version of this phrase is in the comments, “I’m a feminist and…”

Are you a feminist who likes watching movies but get’s tired of the same sexist movie tropes? I love movies, mainly older ones, but sometimes the ideas shown get me so angry, I have trouble enjoying the movie. I did a feminist book list which a lot of you said was really helpful. There are also some tv shows included! Anyway, here are some movies that are feminist/activist friendly and are sure to empower.

fastfashion_

 

The last post of the short series, part three! You might have already read the first 2, but here is my little spiel and description: We all say we want to help the environment, but that means more than just buying a trendy reusable straw. One of the biggest contributing factors some of the worlds most prominent problems has to do with fashion. As much as it pains me to say, the fashion world is flawed. Fast fashion, worker rights, non-inclusivity, racial stigma, and so much more. While I will definitely expand on those topics in future posts, today I’m talking about fast fashion. In this 3 post series, I’m going to explore what it is, why it’s important, what you can do, and how you can do it. Get ready for part 3, where I’m going to discuss how you can change your lifestyle and what you can do to help! If you haven’t read part 1 or 2, it will make more sense so CLICK HERE and HERE!

stop saying sorry

stop say sorry 2019.jpg

 

Yes, that’s me when I was 5. The point is, as females, we are raised from a young age, by society,  in a world where we automatically feel guilty for everything. As women, we are more inclined to say sorry for things that we aren’t even at fault for. That all the bad things can somehow to be tied back to our actions. When we say sorry, we give up our power. We relinquish it to the person at fault, who will now feel entitled to do as they want. In this post, I’m going to explore why females say sorry and how you should own yourself. I’ve read so many articles an essays about this topic, which is what initially got me interested. At the bottom of the post, there are links to websites and articles I enjoyed and recommend!
