To be female

Feminist: A person who advocates the social, political & economic equality of the sexes.

This post is going to be a ramble of thoughts, I just know it.

I legit don’t even know where to start.

Let’s start with me because that’s easy to do.

I’m a person who finds a powerful drive and strength within my own solitude. I thrive and enjoy my own ‘raw-ness’. I think when you are quiet, alone, you are the most ‘you’ that you can be. The true expression of a woman is nothing less of pure beauty. I explore and relish in the feminine physical, sexual and mental side of my true self. It is ever-changing, evolving. Interesting. Challenging. Rewarding. Never stagnant.

Throughout life women are taught to be sexy, but not too sexy. Strong, but not threatening. Pretty, but not too pretty. Tough, but soft. The list goes on.

Women are amazing. We are so powerful. So beautiful and so worth celebrating.

So are men.

Give yourself time today and every other day, to appreciate yourself. To love yourself fully. To make time for yourself.

Because you’re worth it *hair flip*

Love to all my sistas and brothas on this fabulous day. International Women’s Day. Let’s build eachother up. Love love love. Celebrate.

I wanna take some time to express the need for support for the #repealthe8th marches going on in Ireland today and around the world.

We deserve the right to bodily autonomy and basic healthcare in this country.

It is not the place of this country, Ireland, or the church, to have any say over our bodies.

We won’t wait.

Wear black today.

Show your support.

March if you can.

#Strike4Repeal.

Twelve women everyday leave Ireland seeking abortion abroad.

No more women should die in this country after being denied life saving abortion procedures.

The fact that a woman can get longer in jail for abortion than a man can for rape in this country is fucked up and it needs to change. So much more to say, but –

We won’t wait. #repealthe8th

 

Love to you all,

Namaste,

Amy xx
