"And when I sleep let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost."
my girl angie knows privilege and can acknowledge that its not “ooo i worked harder to get here and if some women work this hard they could be standing here too”
but more like “my opportunities are better because i was born into a position thats easier to get them and i acknowledge that that is unfair”
This is important
In my Women’s Images and Realities lecture, the lecturer asked, “All those who are identified as female, what do you do if you get off a subway or bus or you’re walking down the street or going home and it’s dark and late at night?” A lot of girls raised their hands and said answers like:
"I hold my keys between my fingers."
"I take out my pepper spray."
"I pretend I’m talking to someone on the phone."
"I keep my head down."
"I text someone where I am."
"I have my guy friend walk with me."
Then she asked, “All those who are identified as male, what do you do in the same situation?” And all of the the guy’s answered:
"I just walk home."
Happy International Women’s Day!
(A woman can preach, a woman can work, a woman can fight. A woman can build, can rule, can conquer, can destroy just as much as a man can.)
