The Conversation about women’s bodies exists largely outside of us, while it is also directed at (and marketed to) us, and used to define and control us. The Conversation about women happens everywhere, publicly and privately. We are described and detailed, our faces and bodies analyzed and picked apart, our worth ascertained and ascribed based on the reduction of personhood to simple physical objectification. STOP IT.
Abortion, Contraception... Hallelu! | A post on Reproductive Rights from the blog, "To Boldly Go..." by Stacy Lemery. "Funny how the world seems content to trust women with birthing and raising children, but the idea of trusting women with the choice of whether or not to have children is something radical. There should be no shame in a woman's body, in her decision to have or not have sex, or in her decision to have or not have a child."
Curvy girls are just as beautiful as skinny girls. You know what that also means? Skinny girls are just as beautiful as curvy girls. Don't bash one to lift the other up then act like that's body-positive.
I made this because of a disturbing poster I saw floating around about good girls still existing. It perpetuated the idea that in order to be good you have to avoid doing certain things in life. This kind of attitude needs to stop because it does the exact opposite of empowering women. #quote #inspiration #women #empowerment
