#fbf to getting to spend time every single day with this sunbeam. i miss @sarah_q_taylor SO MUCH!! it hasn’t even been a week and i am already about to embarrass us both on social media by waxing poetic about what a treasure of #sisterhood i found in her. sarah has never met a challenge she couldn’t conquer, she is quick witted, zany and creative; and she is the most effortlessly generous friend, whom i was lucky enough to cherish for the past 7 months since she joined the @rottenbroadway family. she is a source of constant inspiration and she possesses the unique ability to fit in anywhere while being her wonderful, genuine self. she loved on my family like her own... she is my sister and i miss her! ♥️ ♥️ ♥️ #sistersister#myheart#framily#bestfrands#tourlife#somethingrotten#rottenontheroad#flashbackfriday#feminists#whoruntheworld
To all the men and women out there who claim to not be feminists because of "women who abuse the movement", I have a few questions for you. If someone misrepresents your faith, would that stop you from living out your faith? If someone misrepresents your country, would you disown your country in order to run away from the misrepresentation? If someone portrays your culture in a disrespectful or rude manner, would that stop you from embracing the culture that is a part of who you are? Please let's be honest with ourselves. In all of these cases, we would try to stand up and represent our beliefs, culture or country the RIGHT way. So why is it so hard to do the same with feminism? . If you know the real meaning behind a worthy cause, why not stand up for it and live your truth? If someone is repping your country wrongly and you fail to correct that impression within whatever capacity you have, then you're also a part of the problem. . Millions of women all over the world who still don't have equal rights. Sitting back and folding your hands won't help them. . See, if you know you're right, then there's no need to argue about it. Just hold onto your truth and live with it. Arguing only makes it seem like you're on the defence,which in turn makes you seem insecure about your belief. When you're very settled in your opinion, it's easier to be open to other people's perspectives without fear. . And beyond all the shouting, let's add action to our beliefs. Okay fine, "feminism isn't this, it's that" or "it isn't that, it's this". At the end of the day, what PRACTICAL solution have you embarked on to empower other women?
