How has Trump hurt women you may ask? Well, I am here to inform you, and I’m not talking about grabbing women by the pussy or any of those sex scandals he was a part of. In the first 100 days of his presidency, he has not done much good for women, even if Ivanka … Continue reading First 100 Days
I know it’s late. I’m sorry, I had homework then got distracted at the gym by a friend’s birthday and drinks. (Of course. :)). For Feminist Friday I thought I would write about what I believe is feminism. What feminism means to me and how I try to live my life and raise my boys. … Continue reading What Feminism Means To Me
Usually my Feminist Friday posts are depressing, anger filled, and very opinionated. Today however it's pleasant and encouraging. 🙂 Did you Join the march on Washington? If so, pat yourself on the back, give yourself a high five, treat yourself to a shot, or whatever it is you do to celebrate. If you haven't seen … Continue reading Did you join the march on Washington?

There are so many strong, independent, kind, and intelligent people in the world it makes my heart smile! ❤ From Boozilla: "Somehow I think you are missing the point, although much … Continue reading Follow Up To Monday’s Post
I was perusing Huffington Post a while ago and saw this article about the laws states have passed to try and make getting an abortion much harder. It makes me sick to my stomach. I can't even begin to understand the struggles women in these states are going through. I understand some of us won't agree … Continue reading Why I March

For feminist Friday this week I am going to leave these two articles here for you to read. Just reading these two headlines really makes me a cranky bitch.

Please read this Dear Mr. Trump article. Take it all in. Let me know what you think. Let's stand up for equality. Let's stand together. Let's take back our power! Here is the Dear Mr. Trump Website.
