At its core, feminism is the simple conviction that women are equal to men in every regard, and should be treated as such.
To do: 10:00 daily review, 12:30 meeting with Brev, 2:00 pick up Corey from school, 4:15 back at office, 4:30 meeting with clients, 6:30 pick up groceries on the way home. That’s my day. I practically relive it over and over. There’s barely a need to write it in my black book. It’s the same thing every day. My only saving grace is the weekend. That, and the fact that I am lucky to have a job like this in the first place.

Do What Thou Wilt
“20,000?! That cannot be, sir!” Clara's breath hitched in her chest as spots formed before her eyes. Suddenly she worried she might faint, despite the fact she had never been the sort of woman who was prone to fainting spells.
It’s Exhausting To Smile At Men Who Sexually Harass Us
The last thing I want to do is to be sexually harassed as I walk to my car. I’ve had a hard day at work. The only thing I want to do is to go home, put my feet up, and relax.
My Ode to Femininity & Blackness
It’s not easy being female. I mean, I think every woman can attest to that. Not only are we automatically deemed the “weaker sex,” not only do we live in a patriarchy where men believe it is their RIGHT to decide what is best for women, not only are we living in an impenitent rape culture…. But, Eve had to mess around at talk to a flying serpent and screw us ALL over with cramps and monthly bloodletting! Only so that we can generate the eggs necessary to make even MORE ungrateful and privileged men who believe they can decide what’s best for women…

100 Days of Meditation Post Break-Up
Day 1 – February 25th, 2021 I took a look at my YouTube music playlist after my afternoon workout and got slapped back by my sudden realization today! The list started with “Head in the Clouds” by Naika featuring Teamarrr a song about putting down the emotional baggage of an ex-relationship in order to pick up one’s Goddess-hood instead. The second song was “Stronger” by Raveena a song I interpreted to be about trusting yourself and not letting a man discourage your own divinity. Then it was “Be Careful” by Cardi B, literally telling her man to appreciate her or else risk losing her. “What You Won’t Do” by Savanna Cristina is a mix of oldie vibes with newbie lyrics and again about appreciating the woman in your life before she’s gone. And a slew of Other songs mostly consistent of the artists Teamarrr, Doja Cat, Beyoncé, and Lizzo. I’d been jamming on the way to the store to gather groceries to make for my boyfriend, singing in the shower in his small one bedroom apartment merely yards away from him, and making out with him with the music bumping in the background without ever noticing that I’d unintentionally and expertly cultivated my break-up playlist prior to my actual break-up.
The Sex Crazy Nuns Who Shocked Medieval England
Even after more than 800 years, it was an unsettling sight. In 2012, archaeologists excavating a church site in Oxford had found skeletons of nuns who died in disgrace after being accused of 'sexually immoral behaviour.
Five Movies That Black Female Artists Made Better
I had always believed, even as a mere child, that film is great because of strong visual components. And it is, but I quickly reformed that idea upon watching Casablanca (1942). As the story goes, the competent and lovable best-friend of Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), Sam (Dooley Wilson) plays a song upon the request of Blaine’s former flame, Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman). The sweet tune of “As Time Goes By” drifts through the scene, uplifting the spirit of the film. The scene is among the most famous and beloved in American cinema. But the power of the scene is not due to the sultry voice of Sam, the sadness in Ilsa’s eyes, nor the cultural impact. The scene’s power stems from music’s ability to craft a tangible environment, ultimately elevating the final product.
The Feminine Critique
People have said we are in the midst of the "third-wave" of feminism, but undoubtedly there have been waves throughout all of history. Some were small and took place in homes or local communities; some were large and influenced whole nation-states; and occasionally there were tidal waves that women around the globe could feel the impact of.
Is there a Gender War Happening Today?
The term ‘Gender War’ is often a buzzword within American culture that incites a wave of differing opinions. Is there a war of women or is there a war on men? Has the rise of Men’s Rights Movement come up to counteract Feminism? Likewise, has these two movements caused a gender divide?
I Was a Feminist Even Before I Was Labeled as one
I was a 16 years old teenager when I first came across the term feminist. It was my young and supposedly hip English teacher who introduced the term to me that ended up sculpting my entire life.
