Taking care of babies, feeding people, nurses, cleaning bathrooms and offices. So much of this life saving care taking work is devalued and it is literally what makes the world run. To all the ‘cleaning ladies’ and the nannies, and the master chefs making magic everyday, you make us all more possible. #respectdomesticworkers #tipwell #keepitcleanwherepossible

im SO SICK of hearing about how feminism “helps men” i don’t care why do they need to be reassured that they will benefit from it before they can support us fighting for basic human rights and liberation

Dear fellow white women:

Protect women of color at all costs. 

Recognize your privilege.

Don’t whine about non-white women getting the spotlight when they get it.

Understand that we face oppression as women, but women of color face the same thing PLUS racism not only from men but also from other women, times 10.

If you call yourself a feminist, defend ALL women.

The more I spoke about feminism, the more I realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes. […] You might think: who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the UN? I’ve been asking myself at the same thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make this better. And having seen what I’ve seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility to say something.

Radical feminists on this website are absolutely unbelievable. Saying you are bisexual in your blog description or url is heteronormative reassurance and makes you untrustworthy? In what world

the fuck even

oh, and just because it will piss off a radfem: I’M BISEXUAL LOOK AT ME WOOOOOO FUCKING DEAL WITH IT

So many girls saw this. Bless.

Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, wete cheering on and gave her an award

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement. 
African women are blazing a feminist trail - why don’t we hear their voices? (The Guardian)

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

 

I just saw this ad on tv and I can’t even begin to put into words how much it means to me.

The best part, though, is that there was no plug for a product. Makeup wasn’t the focus of the commercial, wasn’t ever mentioned.
