The Merriam-Dictionary word of the year is… FEMINISM!
Feminism to me is… Social injustice. I don’t think about equal pay, or my lovely right to vote, or any of that.
I think about how my very old-school father would get angry that I did ‘manly’ chores around the house. Not going to lie, my husband wasn’t a fan either. But if the trees need to be trimmed, or the garage needs to be cleaned, or the trash needs to be taken out- I’m gonna fuckin’ do it.
My husband and I are equal. I mean… I kill the cockroach and he’s the one who picks it up… But, still. We are a team. We both have our strengths and weaknesses, and I would never assume he couldn’t do something because he’s a male, and he sure the hell doesn’t assume I can’t fix a dishwasher because I have a vagina. (I You Tubed that shit)
Teach your daughters everything you’d teach your sons, and vice versa. Minus a few key things, like don’t teach your son how to use a tampon. That’s weird.
Here’s to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.
