I bought one for me and one for my sister, as a sort of celebration and surrender to all the things that make us “imperfect”. As women, we’re held up to impossible standards of perfection. Usually, it’s to sell us something that will ease our discomfort and shame about said imperfections. That’s the obvious part. The less obvious part is the standards set by society, and in particular toxic people we unwittingly let into our lives. These are the people who exploit our imperfections to make us feel unworthy, ugly and unloved. We’re either too fat, too skinny, too dark, too educated (yes), too shy, too loud, too smart, too dumb, too independent, too outspoken, divorced, single, childless etc etc. All that energy is heavy. Hand their energy back to them. Hand it back to them and don’t carry it within you because it festers. And don’t pass it on to others because that perpetuates the cycle of hate. They set these expectations as a trap where we get caught time and time again and feel like absolute failures… that is, until we wake up and realise that nobody can trap us unless we walk into their world of shaming and judgement. Walk away. Today.

It’s been far too long since I’ve taken the time to introduce myself. And there are many new and old faces around here that I’d like to get to know better. So I thought I should say hi!!

And there are many new and old faces around here that I’d like to get to know better. So I thought I should say hi!! I’m Melissa Gibson, a law student, living in Louisville, KY. I also spend my weekends behind a bar serving wine for a local winery.
Some random facts about me: I was born in the Philippines and lived there until I was 15-years-old. Stateside I am from Los Angeles/Orange County, but Louisville has been home for almost 8 years now. I have my Masters in Women’s and Gender Studies. My favorite drink is a Bourbon and Ginger with a lemon. I am the eldest of three girls. I have been married and divorced. And I’ve been inside a Pyramid.

In less than a week I will be 30-years-old y’all!!!!! And in this final week of my 20’s I’ve been reflecting on my life, moving forward, and what I want to take with me. I’m super excited to be entering this new decade, a lot because I’ve loved my 20’s. They taught me so much, challenged me, and I’ve grown into someone I’m immensely proud of. I had a blast, I worked hard, I made mistakes, and didn’t regret them. My 20’s were full of love and people who brought so much to my life, and luckily many of them are moving with me into this new chapter. Even those who are not, I am thankful for, I am proud of them, and while they may not be a part of my life anymore, I am lucky they were for a time.
I wanted to take some time here to set out my intentions.

This space is meant to be a safe space. Not from being challenged. Not from hurt feelings. Not from the realities of the world. You aren’t going to get a lot of sunshine, unicorns, and rainbows here. But you are going to get a space where we are allowed to be human, make mistakes, and hopefully work through that (to the best of my ability and control) in a healthy way. That does not mean that I don’t know when to block someone who is not here to contribute to that environment. Because I will. ***CONTINUED IN COMMENTS BELOW***

Gudiya, 20: “I divorced my husband after only 12 weeks of marriage. I know that’s shameful here – divorce, I mean – but he was abusive and violent. He tried to set me on fire, and he was having an affair with another woman. I couldn’t stand for that. Girls in Nepal are taught to stay quiet and to obey men, but for me, that was never an option.

Growing up, all I ever dreamed of was being an accountant, but my father had a heart attack when I was 17 – and as the eldest of six children, it was up to me to get married. It’s not like I had a choice.
My life changed when I became a bride. When my husband returned home from work, he would assess the housework and beat me if it wasn’t good enough. Every form of violence was used against me, until it took all of my strength not to run away and hide whenever he approached. One day, he came into the house drunk while I was cooking dinner, and he pushed me onto the stove so that I caught fire. When I screamed, he said it was my fault. That’s when I decided to leave.

These days I feel like a different person. Filing a case of domestic violence in Nepal is an exhausting process, but asking for a divorce feels even harder. Everyone in your community wants you to reunite, and there’s so much focus on forgiveness. The shame of leaving your husband is supposed to be much worse than the pain of any assault.

But I refuse to go back to him. Culturally, what I have done is unacceptable, but I want to be a role model for other young women. I want to build a future on my own. I want to feel proud that I managed to escape."

This is a story I collected in Nepal last year with @vtremeau, but life got in the way of posting it until now. Still, I'm very attached to Gudiya, and wanted to share her story with the world.

She was my #AirBnb hostess in Lake #Akan - and one of the most interesting people I met in #Hokkaido. Like many Japanese women, she stopped working when she began to have children - and spent all her life taking care of her three daughters. Two of them now have babies as well, and stopped working as soon as they had their daughters ... Then, five years ago, Mayumi divorced and remarried with someone who share her passion : flyfishing (Hokkaido is a paradise for flyfishers, especially if you like rainbow trouts). There would be many things to say about why she chose to be a housewife, but I have the feeling I would betray her words if I began to sum up her feelings. Let's just say that you will never truly understand feminism in Japan unless you are a Japanese woman.

I read this book for school and honestly I was expecting to be bored. But I fell in love with this book. I don't know how to explain the plot, really it's just the lives of Chinese-American women and their relationships between mother and daughter. There are four mothers and four daughters that make up the story. As you would expect, the mothers stories are of their lives in China and how they made it to America (I was most interested in their stories, all of them were so good their chapters could be books on their own). The daughters are telling the unique experience of having a foreign parent in America (basically all of the daughters get divorced and are slaves to their career... you know, the normal American life). It's really a sad book about misunderstanding each other, loss, missed opportunities, and remembering. But it also has this presence of hope and just...regular, melancholy life. I know it's not an anthropology text book, but I feel as though I learned something about Chinese culture on a smaller, more personal level. Like the author wanted to tell me about her own experience. Really, it's a lovely and enchanting book that I honestly couldn't put down. I was surprised despite my cynicism. {{ #thejoyluckclub #amytan #books #bookstagram #reading #summer #summerreading #china #sanfrancisco #read #library #bookish}}

Our greatest achievements as men are often are often made possible by women - the strong, invisible wind beneath our wings. Yet too often they are judged, misconstrued, derided, emotionally and physically tortured, divorced, and pushed to the sideline while we bask in the glory of the light that they brought. And even there by the sideline, they stand by us and keep that flame alive, in agony and selflessness. Winnie's story is the story of our mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, partners, girlfriends, friends... What makes Winnie Mandela ANY less a global hero than Mandela? #RIPWINNIEMANDELA

Yesterday I was discharged after 6 weeks in residential treatment for my addiction to alcohol. Yes, I’m an alcoholic. I’m also a daughter of God. I’ve been struggling with addiction for 8 years. I had a chunk of sober time, but found myself falling to the bottle here and there for a couple of years. This past November I fell, and I fell hard. I struggled to find my way to light and happiness. It caused me to have legal issues, lose my 20+ year marriage, and custody of my girls. No matter how much I wanted to pull it together for my girls, and for what I wanted to be a lasting marriage, I just couldn’t find sobriety. With the help of two earthly angels (you know who you are) I found my way to treatment. Today I am fresh out of inpatient treatment, newly divorced, and fighting to keep my relationship with my girls.
I am a fighter... ready to fight this demon inside me. I am a warrior...ready to continue the battle with friends, family and God on my side. I am a women of worth...ready to prove to myself and those I love, value, and adore that I am worth the effort. I am good enough...ready to stand on my two feet, push through the tough times, and keep light, joy and happiness at my fingertips.
This is not the end of anything, but the beginning of something hard, uncomfortable, and scary...but awesome! “What lies behind us and what lies in front of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us” #AddictionRecovery #AlcoholicsAnonymous #Addict2Athlete

Everyone seems to have the key to getting “married” or being “happy” but in the same token everybody is getting divorced and unhappy. The expectations in a relationship start off high based on all this imaginary bliss that we are fed, without realizing the work that is needed to maintain it. I feel that it’s a two way street and yes, MEN & WOMEN only change if THEY want too but the key ingredient in any relationship is dialogue…healthy dialogue with the expectation that as every aspect in the relationship changes, you BOTH change in order for it to be successful.

I am reposting work from my project The Battle Within: Sexual Assault in America’s Military. I applaud the courage of women and men across many civilian industries to come forward and share their truth about sexual assault and sexual harassment. They have let countless victims everywhere know that they are not alone and that time is up for the perpetrators of these crimes. I am saddened though that I have not seen the same level of public outrage for victims of Military Sexual Assault. In 2016, 14,900 men and women were sexually assaulted while serving in the United States Armed Forces and 81% of victims did not report the crime. Let us not forget them.
Military rape survivors Jennifer Norris and Jessica Hinves, smoke and discuss their assaults late into the night at Jessica's home in Biloxi, Mississippi. Jennifer Norris was drugged and raped by her recruiter after joining the US Air Force when she was 21 years old. In tech school, she fought off the sexual assault of her instructor and later evaded the advances of her commanders. "It’s like being in a domestic violence marriage that you can't get divorced from," she said. Norris reported the assaults, rape and harassment and saw her attackers punished but then suffered a sustained campaign of retaliation by her peers at work. Jessica Hinves, was an Air Force fighter jet mechanic when she was raped by a member of her squadron at Lackland Air Force Base. The case against her rapist was thrown out the day before pre-trial was to begin by a commander who said "Though he didn't act like a gentleman, there was no reason to prosecute." #metoomilitary #sexualassault #rape #militarysexualassault #commandrape #photojournalism #battlewithin #usmilitary #usairforce #usnavy #usmarines #whereistheoutrage #MST #metoo #timesup #sexualharassment #justice

This woman’s opinion doesn’t count because she’s not pretty and couldn’t “get a man.” This woman can’t be believed because she’s divorced — what did she do that made her husband leave? There must be something wrong with this woman because she never had kids. This woman should be disregarded because she earns too much — it's so emasculating to her husband. This woman is power-hungry and ambitious; it’s not becoming, she needs to get her priorities straight. This woman is ignored because her voice is “too shrill” or she talks too much. This woman isn’t taken seriously because she dresses wrong — too outlandish or too boring or too slutty. // This is on my mind because I just watched RBG, the documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and I was struck at how she managed (and manages still) to walk that Powerful Woman Tightrope. Come join the discussion on #designmom; the post features powerful poems about powerful women by the powerful poet @amyturnsharp.

Appliances for the Home’
(1949) by the great surrealist photographer, Grete Stern, who was born 9 May 1904 to a Jewish family in Elberfeld, Germany. (It’s in the collection of @themuseumofmodernart ) Grete studied photography in Berlin, met Ellen Auerbach, who was also a student, and they set up a photo studio. Grete continued her studies at the Bauhaus Dessau, where she met the Argentinean photographer Horacio Coppola, who she married in 1935. To escape the Nazis, Grete emigrated to England, and then Argentina. She and her husband mounted what is now considered the first exhibition of modern photography in Argentina, in the offices of Sur magazine. She and Coppola divorced in 1943, but Grete remained in Buenos Aires with their two children; she became a citizen in 1958. She ran a photographic studio, exhibited, did commissions for magazines and taught. She also took wonderful portraits of leading thinkers and artists including Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda and Amaparo Alvajar. In the early in the late 1940s / early 1950s. she did a series of surrealist photomontages for the women's magazine 'Idilio', portraying - to my mind, one of the best briefs ever - 'women's dreams mobilised by the unfulfilled promises of the Peronist regime in Argentine society'. This photograph is from the series. Grete Stern died in Buenos Aires at the age of 95. In 2015 @themuseumofmodernart staged a major exhibition of her work, ‘From Bauhaus to Buenos Aires: Grete Stern and Horacio Coppola’. #bowdown #bornthisday #gretestern

Having really dropped out of the romantic side of society, it's a joke in my opinion lol, I still wonder what happened to all the good women over the years. The ones like my great grandmother and older generations. In my personal experience many of the women have had many masculine qualities, or may just have been too promiscuous (yes I blame feminist extremism lol). Or would want you to love them as they are but expect you to have to live up to or improve yourself to be with them. Nothing wrong with standards but hey you can't hold someone else to standards and then come off as hot trash yourself. As a man in today's society it's not even beneficial at all to even get married. You would think children would atleast be one of the main benefits of marriage but most cases marriage is not even required for that. Shit the kids will typically be used as a weapon smh. And pray you don't end up like the multitude of divorced men financially raped by their ex spouse. Being a man with no kids and trying to find a woman in a similar/same boat is like looking for hay in a needle stack lol. And yes this is from a man's perspective and know about the pitfalls of us men today too....a rant for another snowy morning lol. Just some snowy morning thoughts. Enjoy your morning IG 100!!!!

Like a badge of honour and a cape.
You are not weak for being sensitive or vulnerable- it is your greatest strength.
.
As told in my insta story today ☝🏻 I had a client come into the session talking about how strong she always had to be- so as not to let her family know how she really felt, so as not to hurt them. She took on more and more responsibility gave more and more time, attention, care to everyone but herself. She thought she had to hold it all in and “keep it together” and how did that work out for her? She was totally depleted and sick- got adrenal fatigue and hashimotos disease and resentful and angry.. she knew for years she had to leave her marriage but couldn’t face that truth until her health forced her to. When she divorced and was vulnerable enough to say “ enough is enough” she got her health came back and is now helping other women restore theirs. She left the session saying she has always thought being vulnerable meant weakness, but after our session she shared: she knows she’s never felt stronger in her life-vulnerability helped her reclaim her power, her strength and her voice.

The tears I cried and the anxiety that I felt!!! After pleading with God , begging him , and then coming to terms that he was God and that he made ZERO MISTAKES I began to live again and trust again and patiently wait and then it happened after 7 years of waiting !!! RACHAEL CAME!!!! Then 2 years later RAEGAN CAME!!! Finally making me a mother!!!! God knew what he was doing all along, I divorced when my last daughter was only 2 months old making me a single mother of 2 girls. Through it all MOTHERS DAY IS BEYOND SPECIAL TO ME BECAUSE I LOST 2 children just for God to give me 2 more!!!

He’s had some problems paying attention in school, but I don’t want to put him on medication. His mother and I divorced when he was four. She’s a good person. She’s very appreciative of what I’ve done. She just wasn’t ready to be a parent. I was in a much better place. So she didn’t fight me on custody. But it scares me to think if she had. The courts are set up against men. They almost always determine that women should raise kids and men should pay child support. I don’t understand it. There’s a big push to see women as equal workers. Why can't men be equal parents?"

I’ve received mixed reviews on my comments on the value of Black women, and especially Black wives. My point, in case you have missed it... Stats show that it is harder for Black people to get married, Black people marry later, and a Black woman is doubly more likely to get divorced. At this point, good marriages in America are rare, and in the African American community in particular, it is Rarer than Rare. A married black woman is in the 25%, that is an elite group, and we can not afford someone in the seat that does not belong. We need every Black marriage to be amazing and EVERY BLACK WIFE has to be an Olympic champion in Wifing. AND I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS on this topic.

My journey into parenthood happened quickly and with many surprises. Riley made me a mama, teaching me so much about how to parent, in ways raising me. She’s been the dream child that I can’t believe exists. My second baby, is no longer with us but very important to me. Mourning that loss took me awhile. Beck is the baby who showed up when I wasn’t ready, spiraling me into postpartum depression. He’s the one who I think was sent to help me after I lost the baby... he’s also the one who makes me want to run away and never come back. I’m not very good at many things, but I know that being there mama is something I thrive at. Thank you for letting me grow up with you sweet, wild, baby wolves // Happy Mother’s Day to the women who brought me into this world, to the mother who chose me and raised me, the mother who continued to be my mother after I got divorced, and to the mother whose family I will be joining this September. Holy shit, my dream of having all the moms has come true 😍😭

I first started eating my emotions when my parents got divorced my senior year of high school...the world I had known for 17 years came crashing down in front of my eyes. My family was BROKEN 💔, and at the time I thought it was all MY fault. It felt like a bad dream I couldn’t escape, I didn’t know how to cope, and so I ate. And ate. And ate.
.
I ate all of my feeling and food was ALWAYS there for me. And so our toxic relationship began...for years I struggled. I gained 40lbs in 6 months and was later diagnosed with PCOS. The emotional eating did NOT help my symptoms.
.
What has helped me break the cycle was changing my relationship with food, my MINDSET around what food was and the purpose it served in my life. Food was NOT therapy although I tried to use it that way...to avoid doing the hard and uncomfortable work.
.
I still struggle from time to time #recoveringemotionaleater. Most recently my miscarriage sent me into an emotional eating cycle as I worked through the grief and processing my feelings. I actually went to an Ayurvedic nutritionist and spent THOUSANDS of dollars on these consults.
.
But I get that this isn’t accessible for everyone which is why I am SO excited that we have partnered with a nutritionist to bring you an at home nutrition based course. If you have ever struggled with your relationship with food in any form this could seriously help you heal your relationship, create a new MINDSET around fueling your body and find food FREEDOM.
.
Did I mention this is solely nutrition based?! Working out is “extra credit” and not required to see results and FEEL better. Nutrition is like 70% of the equation and where I started with my health & fitness journey. Once I got nutrition down, then I added in workouts and actually saw results. I am so excited to help more women break free of emotional/binge eating and truly find food freedom! This is NOT a diet, it is a flexible lifestyle that will work with real life.

🔷
statistics say that 40-50% of marriages in the united states end in divorce and last on average 8 years. why did you divorce? why did your parents? what makes a marriage last? what makes one end?
🔷
research shows that the "half of marriages end in divorce" myth is wrong. in 1980 the rate peaked at 40% and has been declining since. the myth really comes from the misstated data input that says that the probability of marriage lasting more than 20 years was 52% for women and 56% for men. close to half. but the myth stuck. fascinating. what we learn sticks no matter if it's wrong.

I've had the joy of working with many women who are committed to doing whatever it takes to get rid of their shit....and it never ceases to amaze me when they tell me things like this! This girl lost 23 pounds in 1 week without exercising or dieting. She merely let go of emotional baggage that was weighing her down.
A lot of people may not understand how something like emotional baggage can physically cause weight gain... So let me explain to you how:

1) Dr. Bruce Lipton explains very well in his book 'The Biology of Belief' that when your thoughts intersect your cells, they change the shape of them from spherical (ease) to elliptical (dis-ease). Cells can get bigger as well.
2) Science has proven that your soul, which is nothing more than energy, weighs 21 grams. Emotional baggage is energy, but a lot of heavy, negative, unwanted energy.
3) Chronically held emotions act like internal pathogens, affecting the functions of your organs.  If you hold onto an emotion, it will stay “undigested” or stagnant in your system. This affects how chi flows through the related meridians and organs, compromising their function. Not only does stress increase cortisol, the weight gain hormone, stress also creates a negative vibration that impairs liver function and because the liver controls the digestive process, any dysfunction can affect how you digest and process food, leading to weight gain.

I've personally experienced this when I divorced myself from family who no longer serve me. My bloating disappeared, which I had tried everything to fix (enzymes, juicing, fasting, vegan, etc) - and nothing worked until I let go of the emotional baggage creating the bloating. @luvguru4u was the witness - and can say that he has experienced this himself! 😍

My Monday Morning Reflection Time brought me to thinking about my life-defining events within each decade.
Have you reflected back? Can you recall yours?
.

10’s - Big family move from Las Vegas to a town of 1800 on The Oregon Coast. Watching my father die at 38 of Melanoma. Lots of insecurities began to emerge. My powerful work ethic was developed.
.

20’s - Becoming a business owner, fitness instructor, married to divorced and learned a whole lot of what to do and not do when your business burns down.
You pick yourself up and start again. Fell a little too head over heels in love with wine.
.

30’s - Sold the business I rebuilt after the fire, started another, built a house, got my heart broke, met the love of my life. Became a wife, fell ever deeper in love with wine and added cheese, crackers, chips, fast food and a whole bunch of bread and pasta. Got fat, sluggish and all I did was work.
.

40’s - Looked in the mirror 👉🏼 didn’t like what I saw. Cleaned up my diet, reeled in the booze, Found my fitness, found myself.
Watched my mom die at 64 of Lifestyle Disease. My brother was lost at sea and my heart shattered into a million pieces.
Desired FREEDOM. Picked myself up and started again. Built a solid home business based on my love for living healthy, sold my brick and mortar business to live a higher quality of life and have MORE time for everything I LOVE.
.

50’s - Well, I’m 7 months in and I’m stronger emotionally and I’m certainly fitter than any other past decade. Now, I just want to empower women to dream again and to achieve those dreams.

Someone I know used to constantly tell me about how terrible her engagement ring was.
How tacky + ugly she thought it was + how much she hated it.
She would say she spent a large part of her marriage “monumentally disappointed” with her ring but she dealt with it bc she knew the man loved her.
I’m no marriage expert but considering they’re divorced now, I can only imagine they didn’t communicate with nor know each other very well and...I mean really, how pure is your love if you have to walk on eggshells and cannot be honest about something like a ring?
I would hope the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with knows you better than anyone else. And, even if they misjudged when they chose a ring for you, your relationship would afford you the comforts of being able to express your raw feelings in a loving way. ❤️
I’m fortunate to have a fiancé who knows me, sees me, + hears me.
He knew exactly what I wanted. He also knows how strongly I feel about women not shrinking themselves or stifling their voices for men + how against settling or “just dealing with” things to please a man I am. So, he knew I wouldn’t hesitate to vocalize my disappointment if it was something that didn’t necessarily fit me. 🙃
He did good.
I absolutely adore my ring.
It’s a pear shaped peachy toned morganite in a diamond halo set in rose gold, it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned.
To be fair, I’d happily marry Zeke with no ring at all but....if I’m going to have one, I’m glad this is the one I have. 💍👰🏽❤️

______
It's easy to settle. Or worse, complain about something we don't like and do nothing.
______
The challenge for each of us is to act.
______
A phrase that brings ire to me is "good enough for government work." It's always struck as something one says when they don't care enough to do their best.
______
Another such phrase is: "it is what it is."
______
Lately I'm thinking about recent surveys showing that men and women want a return to traditional gender roles. And I see it as a throwing up of hands. A wish to be told what to expect in life. A blueprint for success.
______
Sadly the answer to one's happiness isn't inaction. I remember a couple my grandparent's age who got divorced. Their children had grown and now had children of their own. And the husband had just retired.
I'd thought he had initiated the divorce. I was wrong. She had. And whenever I wish for simpler times I think of what she answered when asked why now. "There's never any better time than now. Life is too short and it's now my time to do what I want."

Addams' first drawing for The New Yorker, a sketch of a window washer, ran on February 6, 1932, and his cartoons ran regularly in the magazine from 1938, when he drew the first in the series that came to be called The Addams Family, until his death. He was a freelancer throughout that time.

During World War II, Addams served at the Signal Corps Photographic Center in New York, where he made animated training films for the U.S. Army. In late 1942, he met his first wife, Barbara Jean Day, who purportedly resembled his cartoon character Morticia Addams. The marriage ended eight years later, after Addams, who hated small children, refused to adopt one. She later married New Yorker colleague John Hersey, author of the book Hiroshima.

Addams married his second wife, Barbara Barb, in 1954. A practicing lawyer, she "combined Morticia-like looks with diabolical legal scheming," by which she wound up controlling The Addams Family television and film franchises and persuaded her husband to give away other legal rights. At one point, she got her husband to take out a US $100,000 insurance policy. Addams consulted a lawyer on the sly, who later humorously wrote: "I told him the last time I had word of such a move was in a picture called Double Indemnity starring Barbara Stanwyck, which I called to his attention." In the movie, Stanwyck's character plotted her husband's murder. The couple divorced in 1956.

The Addams Family television series began after David Levy, a television producer, approached Addams with an offer to create it with a little help from the humorist. All Addams had to do was give his characters names and more characteristics for the actors to use in portrayals. The series ran on ABC for two seasons, from 1964 to 1966.

Addams was "sociable and debonair." A biographer described him as being "a well-dressed, courtly man with silvery back-combed hair and a gentle manner, he bore no resemblance to a fiend." Figuratively a "ladykiller," Addams accompanied women such as Greta Garbo, Joan Fontaine and Jacqueline Kennedy on social occasions. #destroytheday

We learn to endure out of necessity. But no one tells you that realizing the full potential of your personal power comes from your ability to be vulnerable...to be honest with yourself and others, and to ask for and accept help when you need it. Most people can connect to a real truth. Most times, we don’t give people enough credit for being human. The truth is that so few of us have the courage to be honest about our lives, feelings and experiences because we are so concerned about being judged or misunderstood. At this point in my life, I make a consorted effect to be truthful to myself and to those around me regardless of the consequences. Many of us have built our whole lives based on lies...just imagine what we could do if we had the truth on our side! Take a few moments today and be honest with someone close to you. It might surprise you as to how much it will strengthen the relationship and give depth to your connection. Always remember, vulnerability is more powerful than invincibility...Happy Friday❣️ #WomanLaw #Vulnerability #Power #Strength #Truth #EBsPinkNotes💗

The responses to my “GP for Office” post were fascinating. If only we took that fervor to the polls. That we’re able to rattle off the “misdeeds” of politicians in such rapid-fire succession...To have that internal fire burn so strongly instead against male politicians that threaten to take away control over our bodies, our children, how our families are taxed, defund special needs and elderly programs, stall violence against women bills and look the other way to rape kit backlogs, foster care, who sends our family members to war, and those that take money from Monsanto/NRA/Pharma...we wouldn’t have a fucking thing to complain about. That’s if we women unify with kindness over respectful debate. That is our advantage over men and we never use it....and as far as GP, someone will have to one day explain how a woman that’s dedicated to her life to the arts and wellness is more toxic than ~85% of Capitol Hill. What does political change mean to you? Do you want business experience, political experience, more lawyers in Congress? More white old men? Or, women right out of college? Women of color. What about mothers? Stay-at-home moms, working moms. Divorced women. Cancer survivors, reformed addicts, TEACHERS. Women that have never had a voice, I want to hear what they have to say. A range of life experiences, socio-economic backgrounds and educational pedigree (for the love of GOD) having legislative power in Washington would change the world. I want a woman that knows how the world works, to speak for me. Ladies, we are at a pivotable moment in politics, right now. We need to get all get on the bus, together. Arguing about who gets on, and vetting them like a bad Fox News Sean Hannity episode gets us nowhere. And we’ll all just standing around nowhere, angry, pointing fingers at what another woman did and didn’t do. We are born to bond. I’m in incredible tooth pain and passing out. If I wake up to hateful comments, so be it. SG.

Formed from the poorest regions of Pakistan, Bangladesh has come a long way since its independence in 1971.

Bangladesh is expected to post a growth rate of 7.5 per cent in 2018-19 against the 7.3 per cent projected for India. It also
saw a GDP growth of 7.28 per cent in the last financial year and the per capita income grew by 39 percent between 2013 and 2016.

The garment industry in Bangladesh is one of the strongest drivers of the economy. China’s retreat from low end manufacturing has helped cement Bangladesh’s position in the sector, and the country has been wooing global investors with its cheap work force.

At the same time the government has made primary education free and compulsory, giving girl students stipends and scholarships for their entire school education. The government has a strong social safety net for women with initiatives such as four to six months of paid maternity leave, and allowances for divorced and destitute women.

Women now make up nearly 70 per cent of Bangladesh’s garment Industry.

Happy International Women’s Day Day. If you know us at all, you know every day is Women’s Day at our house.
It’s been amazing seeing the tributes to women who have blazed trails, who have raised their voices and spoken their truths to help get us where we are today. Today I found myself reflecting on the women in my family who laid the stepping stones for me to be the woman I am becoming. My great grandmother who lived to be 101. Who paid off her house with a job at the post office while my grandfather was at war. And who raised my mom after having raised 5 children of her own. Knowing she had given birth at home was what made me want that experience for myself. And what gave me the confidence to know that I could.
And my grandma, who divorced an abusive husband in a time when leaving an abuser was socially unacceptable. And went on to raise 5 kids as a single mother in the 60’s. I have been blessed to at one point, to have 5 generations of women in my family in one room.
My doula @yogila2 said to me once “when we heal women, we will heal the world”. It was a moment I will never forget. That statement roused something inside me, on an almost primal level. I had never heard anyone say anything like that before, but it was as if someone had told me the secret of life. I wanted to shout “YES! Yes! That is truth!” And it is. And on a fundamental level, when we bring balance to our world, and women rise up and heal, and stand in their power and speak their truths- then this world will once again be whole. It’s an exciting to be a woman and to be raising women. #internationalwomensday #internationalwomensday2018

Brilliant and scandalous, actress and critic Amy Leslie was a woman used to being at the top of her game - and when things didn’t go her way, she changed the game. Born in Iowa in 1855 as Lillian West, she graduated top of her classes in academic school and music conservatory. Taking the stage name Lillie West she began touring as a singer in operettas in the US and Europe. In 1884 she married a fellow performer, Harry Brown and had a son. When Brown abandoned her and her son tragically died, she quit the stage and became a theater critic for the Chicago Daily News, becoming one of the few women in that profession. She shocked polite society several times by living with author Stephen Crane in the 1890s and then marrying Frank Buck who was 29 years her junior in 1901 (they divorced 12 years later). She wrote books and travelled extensively during her life, becoming a well respected writer and friend of influential woman around the world, from Annie Oakley to Sarah Bernhardt. She retired in 1930 and died in 1939. She is referred to as the most famous woman of Chicago, second only to Jane Addams. #amyleslie #lilliewest #actress #critic #womanwriter #chicago #frankbuck

The only women in the British royal family entitled to be called ‘Princess’are Anne, Beatrice, Eugenie and Alexandra. Lady Louise of Wessex is legally a princess but called Lady at the request of her parents.
Kate is to be referred to only as The Duchess of Cambridge. Diana is to be referred to only as Diana, Princess of Wales. To use the title of’Princess’ before their given names implies they are/were princesses in their own right. This is not the case for either of them.
A princess by marriage cannot be called Princess and her first name. However, Diana, Princess of Wales, was so consistently referred to as "Princess Diana" that by frequent usage (at least in her case) it has come to be accepted occasionally in the media.
Princesses by marriage are the recognized wives of the Sovereign's sons and male-line grandsons.Generally, these women are entitled to the style "Royal Highness" by virtue of marriage, and retain the style if widowed. However, Queen Elizabeth II issued Letters Patent dated 21 August 1996 stating that any woman divorced from a Prince of the United Kingdom would no longer be entitled to the style "Royal Highness". This has so far applied to Diana, Princess of Wales, and Sarah, Duchess of York.■

Aside from being physically strong, they are the most spiritually and mentally strong individuals I’ve come across.

My grandpa is suffering extremely bad from Alzheimer’s right now and my grandma has been by his side throughout it all, and still goes to visit him nearly everyday.
-
My mom and Dad got divorced about 7-8ish years ago. My dad owns a grocery store and my mom worked as a bookkeeper for him since day 1 (back in the 1990’s). So once they got divorced she had to go off and find something else to do, not having any type of educational background. She went back to school and I’ve never seen someone work so hard at something in my life. She’s now an accountant at a dental office and loves her job.
-
I’ve been so blessed to have such influential people to look up to in my life and I thank God for that everyday. Aside from killing it at life, these two women always made it a priority to take care of their bodies and physical health.
-
When you feel good, you perform well, when you perform well, you make an impact, when you make an impact you make a difference.
So THANK YOU to my Grandma Kathy and my mommy for teaching me one of the most valuable things in my life and passing on the big “delts” gene as well 💪🏼

Fixated on bottom feeding women and those who would never-ever-on-their-worst-day commit to giving me the light of it. The best were recently divorced, rebounding from someone vastly more well off, in shape, and generally overall decent. Sure, they cheated. But most people are unfaithful. Statistically speaking.
I'd find them mostly awake in dive bars respectable women refused to enter. Or they'd write me, halfway begging to buy me a drink if I ever blew through town.
And I was never solid or whole enough to realize that they were just as sad and as low
as I had long grown accustomed to.
All that ever separated us was comfort.
The place I called home
was always a place I made sure they felt unwelcome within. Our time is/was now.
So we found forever in the middle of moments that only ever lasted an hour, an evening, a week or a month at most,
but which we always, unspokenly,
accepted as temporary.
I read once that it takes a long time to make love to someone who hates themself.
I learned the hard way that it takes twice as long to feel loved from someone who was never enough.

With her bubble-gum pink hair and stylishly ripped jeans, Doaa Bassem [second right] goes a long way to redefining what it means to be a Saudi woman these days. At age 14, she learned how to change the oil of her father’s car and dreamed of owning a classic Trans Am. Although she assumed she would be barred from driving the sleek, loud muscle car, she wanted the fun of taking the engine apart and rebuilding it. By 17, she had entered into an arranged marriage. Within a year, she had given birth to a child, divorced, then remarried and divorced again.

Now, at 29, she is a single mother who works, lives on her own and plans to be among the first women who take to the streets on Sunday, the first day they will be legally permitted to drive in Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy that is the last country in the world to bar women from driving. Ms. Bassem won’t be behind the wheel of a sports car, though. She will be riding a Harley. “I’ve always been a tomboy and a rebel,” she said. “Now, others are thinking more like me. Parents have started to understand that marriage isn’t everything, that girls might want a different life. And society is starting to accept this too.” Story published today on @nytimes words by Margaret Coker

(2/2) I think every couple to be should have some sort of pre-marital counseling. It’s not enough to say we love each other and we share this list in common let’s get married. There’s a stigma behind being divorced especially for women. Ironically none of it is Islamic, just cultural unfortunately. Divorce was not unheard of or looked down on during the time of the Prophet PBUH. Many men would marry a divorced woman or widow and see it as an honor by Allah SWT.
One of the hardest things to do is learning how to forgive yourself for your past especially when it involves hurting others. So for those out there divorced, hurting, lost, or in pain then this post is for you. Allah SWT tells us in Surat Ad Dhuha that he has not forgotten or abandoned you. Don’t let your past dictate your future, don’t let the devil win. If you let your past bring you closer to Allah SWT, then know you’ve already won.
I would not be the man I am today without the experiences of my failed marriage. I feel like I know what I want now and what I’m looking for. If Allah SWT blesses me with another chance, then I want nothing more than to please my creator and be the best husband and father I can be God Willing. This is the Sunnah and this is what the Prophet Muhammad PBUH taught us men to do.

See you all in Indy September 8th iA. “ @ohhamra #muslimsoftheworld1

FEAR

I got this question many times - how did I get into sports. And I have never said this before especially on INSTAGRAM. But I know so many women who go through shit that I will say where I came from.
About 3,5 years ago I got divorced after being married for 5 years to a man that was EVERYTHING to me. I met him when I was 21 and it was that young silly love. We started to live together pretty quick. He got fired from work and we barely had food to eat - all we had was rice and tuna. But I didn’t care, no fancy lifestyle expectations! It was true love I thought. Till I realized he was chatting to other women on the side... oh well, he asked to forgive and I did... We decided to get married, the dress was chosen, the life was all bright... till his mother died and he suddenly was admitted to the army... it was the beginning of the Arab Spring. He disappeared for months and all I could do was crying... literally crying for months.
He showed up again... and this time his family was violently against me.
We went through a lot... and even more cheating. But I was in love. I have been dying inside so many times... you can’t even imagine.
But then we moved to Dubai and I thought we finally figured the shit out... till he cheated again! I left our house for few days... but when I returned... she was there.... she was in my house.... where all my life was! How did he dare to bring her there?
But what was even more painful - she was beautiful. She was successful. A dancer, flexible, strong, performer. Taking care of herself so much. All what I wasn’t.
I was pretty much a house wife. Saving money on everything, never dressing up, never partying, not flexible, scared of all heights and different sports. You know what he said - he wasn’t attracted to me because I wasn’t polishing my nails.... I can’t describe how much it scared me and broke me. We divorced. But inside I felt so unworthy.
However the grief inside made me change. I wanted to prove to myself I’m worth so much more. I started acro yoga seriously, I started aerial, and in few months wasn’t scared of heights on a hoop anymore.

Lana Turner married Stephen Crane (her second out of her 500 husbands...) Stephen Crane was as well known for his high-profile relationships as he was for his successful career. In 1942, Crane met actress Lana Turner at the Mocambo restaurant. Turner later described the meeting in her autobiography: “He mentioned nonchalantly that he was in the tobacco business, in a way that suggested that any kind of business bored him. Certainly it seemed that he had no money worries. We chatted for hours, and by the time he took me home, I was ready to fall in love. With my weakness for a certain kind of good looks, coupled with witty charm, I took him at face value. In no time we were a pair. Only three weeks later he asked me to marry him.” Crane and Turner were married on July 17, 1942, but the happy union was short-lived. Crane had failed to mention that he was not yet divorced from his first wife, Carol Ann Kurtz. Turner quickly annulled the marriage and Crane received a finalized divorce from Kurtz as the marriage mix-up became sensationalized in the gossip columns. After discovering that she was pregnant, Turner remarried Crane in March 1943. Their daughter, Cheryl Crane, was born on July 25, 1943. The marriage did not last and the couple was divorced a second time in August 1944.

In addition to Lana Turner, Crane was involved with many famous women. Crane was seen at hotspots with Ava Gardner and Rita Hayworth in the 1940s and Mamie van Doren in the 1950s. Crane was engaged to starlet Lila Leeds when, in 1948, she was arrested along with actor Robert Mitchum for smoking marijuana. Crane quickly ended the relationship and moved abroad to avoid the scandal.

On April 4, 1958, Crane's 14-year-old daughter, Cheryl, killed Lana Turner's boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato. Sensationalized in the press, the case brought attention to Crane. At the inquest, Crane testified on behalf of his daughter and in the end, the killing was deemed a justifiable homicide.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry

Meghan a mixed race American born and raised Los Angeles, California grew up typically with a story of many others but little did she know her story was about to be changed
Describing her ancestry Meghan said "I'm half black and half white.... I have come to embrace this and say who I am, to share where I am from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident, mixed race women"

She started her role as an actor In Small day time soap operas to which now she is most recognised by her appearance in suits
She married actor Trevor Engelson 2011 but that was short lived by her divorce is 2013
Did she think that she would ever meet her prince a few years later..... Today marks a remarkable union between two people to some of you it's just two people getting married but for the majority it is to see the true birth of diversity In British history.

A mixed race ordinary girl from Los Angeles marrying a British prince who would have thought?
What an empowering messaging for women to have faith and hope That the taboo that people have about divorcee women was definitely going to be changed
I've always thought the son's of princess Diana had that element of their mother to be "normal"
A royal to go against the norm and marry a women of Meghan's background really has an empowering message within itself a huge amount of respect for Prince Harry for breaking that stereotype for in his eyes
Race didn’t matter
Age didn’t matter
Being divorced didn’t matter
I have two messages
Women don’t let anyone make you feel you cannot and do not deserve happiness, love is a word used so openly which sometimes actions speak louder than words
Men don’t let society make you feel that women with a pat are tainted, learn to love and respect everyone’s journey but for it not to judge them
Thank you for Reading was just something I wanted to share
British future has been changed it’s not all black and white but from now on in colour.. #royalwedding #meghanmarkle #princeharry #stereotype #love #wedding #unity #britishhistory

Laura Scott seems to have eschewed the conventions of her time. She was divorced and did not have any children.

Laura was a “dress-maker/seamstress” with a grade school level education. Available prison records describe her education as poor or fair (depending on the year) and she seems to have attended a public school. According to the 1910 Federal Census, Laura was literate, she could read and write. It seems that she had some basic level of schooling as a child, perhaps attending one of the Freedman Bureau schools in Alabama. Her religion is listed as Protestant.

An interesting notation appears in her San Quentin records: “habits Liq. and Tobacco.” This suggests that Ms. Scott drank alcohol and smoked. These habits would certainly not have been considered ladylike. Laura Scott was ahead of her time to be sure. Some questions to leave you with: “What was Laura Scott doing with a white man from Arizona in her home at midnight?” Perhaps she was sewing him a new suit given her skills as a seamstress…

It was rare for women in that period to come into contact with the law. Therefore, in this way, Laura Scott was exceptional. In an article about female violence in pre-1910 California, historian Linda Parker writes that: “From 1880 through 1910, 231 women (1.4%) entered San Quentin out of approximately 16,630 prisoners. Murders, assaults, and robberies represented twenty percent (forty-six inmates) of the convictions, which was less than that for male prisoners. ”

So what you’ve been divorced once, twice or three times?! What you experience in your life has *already* been written for you before you were even born; and if it happened... then it’s khair for you don’t believe me; believe the prophet (s) who told us “the matter of the believe is all good” and believe Allah (swt) who says “don’t hate something and it might be good for you and don’t love something that might be bad for you”... Trust Allah’s Wisdom...and surrender to His Qadar... with gratitude... Don’t fear the judgment of people; they will judge anyway... you should only care about what The Judge, Allah (swt)Thinks of you... Your divorced; which means you were married in the halal way... how many women commit with men in the haram... but you didn’t... so why should you ever be ashamed or guilty of having had a halal relationship; no matter how many times this happened... Do not define yourself worth by how many times you got divorced!! It’s a wrong measure!! Because who you are has nothing to do with anyone else... You are not less in any way than a woman whose married... or a woman who is single... we are all the same... We are all women who are worthy of being loved...again and again... We are all women who are worthy of respect...always... We are all women who are worthy of living happy...no matter what our last chapter in our book of life looks like... You’re the Most Honoured of Allah’s Creation... Please honour yourself... honour your thinking... honour your status; no matter what it may be... Allow yourself to be happy... let go of all the limiting beliefs that make you live in fear, sadness and hold you back... life is too precious and too short to be sad over things that have been already destined for us... your happiness is that happiness you create from within... Your happiness should have nothing to do with your marital status... whether married, divorced, single or widowed... Give yourself a chance to be happy 💚

Hmmm.. Food for thots guys 👌🏻✅- Meghan Markle is 36 (almost 37), and she’s got married to a man who can pass as one of the most eligible bachelors on earth.
.
She is mixed race.
She is divorced.
She’s been in the media for a long time.
She’s American.
She’s not from a royal home.
She’s older than Prince Harry.
.
She’s broken almost all the rules that makes her eligible to be a wife to a Prince. But, she’s got married to the Prince, She walked down the aisle by her to be father in law, Prince Charles.
.
Dear Nigerian single women,
.
STOP BEING DESPERATE!
.
If you are lucky to find the right man at a younger age and you are ready, by all means get married.
.
BUT....
.
Do NOT make the mistake of settling for the wrong man simply because you are over 30 and all your mates are getting married.
.
Wait for the right man.
.
When the right man comes, your age won’t matter much. He will love you for you. He will fight for you against all odds.
.
There are so many beautiful young British women who ticked all the boxes that qualify them to be married to the Prince, but Harry is going for who his heart wants. Seeing that Meghan doesn’t even “fit in”, it’s obvious that Harry fought for her. That’s what your man should do for you.... fight for you.
.
Most women do NOT reach menopause before 45. (Actually, most women in my family reached menopause in their early 50s). But if you are so concerned about biological clock and you really want a biological child earlier in life before 40, there are some options...
.

1 Freeze your eggs.
2 Find other medical means of having a biological child. Medical technology has advanced so much that a woman can now have a biological child almost at any age before 60.
.
Whatever you do, settling for the wrong man shouldn’t be an option.
.
Current world population: Males 50.4% : 49.6% Females.
You see, there are still more males than females on earth. 😐 .

We all had a good laugh, but I was dead serious. 😆 I mean, think about it...You’ve had sex for 10 years, they leave, you get put through hell, no longer have someone to talk to or touch you, your divorce is finalized, you are on the other side and can date and breathe. Not to mention, you are looking hotter than ever because the “divorce diet” knocked some lbs off and you are in your prime💃...I mean, there’s a reason why divorced women are portrayed a certain way in movies. 😂 It’s based on true events. Now, did I get that dinner & make out sesh? No, and I am glad. Am I looking forward to it down the line? Hell yeah! But why I say down the line is because I’ve had coffee dates, people “slide into my DMs” & some deep connections with incredible people earlier this year, but I have also been ghosted, stood up & rejected. 😂 🙌🏻😳🙈 I am thankful for it all on so many levels, & I could not be more thankful for rejection because it poked at that self-worth & loneliness wound. If you ask yourself, “What’s wrong with me,” or think you aren’t good enough when rejection happens that’s an indicator of needing to heal more. And you know you are past that part when your answer to rejection is, “Cool, thanks for telling me,” and you think to yourself, “Dude, are you blind?!” 😂 No, but seriously, you think, “I guess that’s not meant to be 🤷‍♀️.” More importantly, you know if they have a whole heart too. It’s hard to recognize a healed heart if you don’t have one. When I came to God w/ this dating thing, it was very clear He had more work to do. I hadn’t gone through the rest of my “firsts” yet. I started taking myself on dates and continued to fill those voids with God’s love and truth about myself. I feel whole and content now. I have no doubt in my mind that someone special will come. I’m just enjoying my friends, babies and self and lovin’ it! PC @thelaurenstyle

I don’t know why, but mostly when i’m traveling the question of “why aren’t you married” always pops up randomly, men and women: sales persons in stores, coffee shops, restaurants, just ppl I interact with anywhere .. few minutes into a random chat and then they ask “are you married?!” Me: no .. “Were you ever married?!” Me: no ... then they ask about my age and eventually this question: “Why aren’t you married?! .. Me: I don’t know! 🤷🏻‍♀️ or “You don’t believe in marriage?!” Me: I can’t say if I haven’t tried it 🤷🏻‍♀️ .
.
I never take it personal, I joke about it most of the time, or simply say i’m still young 😂 and it seems like being over 40 and single is a global crisis !! At least that’s how they make it sound like !! And I wonder if single-over-40-men get asked this question as much as we, single women, do 😏.
.
I got nothing against marriage. Like everything else in life, it’s a choice everyone’ makes, whether for the right reasons or not, at the end, it is your choice. I was never put under the pressure to get married (bless my cool awesome parents 🙌🏼), And i never had marriage as a goal or a priority in my early life, other things came first, my value as a woman, my work, and my freedom. These were my precious values back then and still are, no regrets, no long love fairytale stories, no long sad heartbreaks, and no unrealistic dreams ... and relationships came and left, life goes on ...
.
I get all weird looks from ppl when I answer “no never married” from the “Awww i’m sorry” pitty look or the “what’s wrong with you?” look and sometimes i get the “good for you!!” Cheering comment (mostly from divorced women 😂) ... What people think of me is none of my concern.. what I think of me is: Am I happy? Am I living the life i choose to live? Am i grateful for everything that happened in my life, the good and bad? YES to all 👍🏼.
.
Do I want to change? Of course, life would be so damn boring if we don’t evolve or change constantly, to the better, you learn from past experiences, have more wisdom, and become more mature. Just know your worth and know what you stand for, don’t fall into false hopes or dreams of others. Life is beautiful ❤️.

The Eyes of 11 Texas Women
Tracey Costello, Shari Hunt, Rose Reyes, Nikki Sumrow, Kelle Moulton, Joyce Marshall, Heather Scott, Destiny Sosa, Debbie Collins, Camille Wheeler, Alicia Wells
The Grackle Art Gallery in Fort Worth is doing Spring Gal lery Night right with an All-Women Photography Show, celebrating 11 talented Texas Women Photographers.
The show, Co-Curated by local Texas photographers Kelle Moulton and Alicia Wells, will take place March 24 from 7-11pm.
The show explores the stereotype, the science and the psychology of how women photographers differ from their male counterparts.
The women in this exhibit all take very different types of photographs. They weren’t chosen based on their subject matter, their age, or even their years of experience. They were chosen because their photos grabbed our attention. Their photos engaged us, made us want to know more.
In talking to the women, they all had a story that was influencing their work. Stay-at-home-mother. Working two jobs. Divorced. Single parent. Laid off. College student. Starving artist. Retired. Teacher. Nurse. No one had the same story, or the same photos. Or even the same reason for taking their photos.
On March 24 you are invited to gaze into the eyes of their portraits, get lost in their sunsets, wonder at their macros, and in general celebrate the journey that has resulted in the work you will see in this collection.
This is a one-night-only, free event. Please make plans to stop by as you make the Spring Gallery Night rounds. Enjoy some: lite bites, sweet tunes, and a view of Texas through the eyes of 11 women who call Texas home.
Special thanks to the Grackle Art Gallery, Matthew J. Sacks, Linda Little and really everyone who has worked to make this happen. With very special thanks to Clint Niosi for coordinating the smooth acoustics of musicians: Amanda Hand, Darrin Kobetich, Deanna Valone.

In honor of Women’s History Month - This is my stepfather’s stepmother, Maye Bockelman. She was a force to be reckoned with. She was fiercely independent. She wanted to work after she was married so she never mentioned getting married. She said married women were never given jobs thereby avoiding any impropriety at the workplace. She worked as an executive secretary at Nelly Don and loved every minute of it. I never saw her cook or clean, that was Grandpa’s chore. I also don’t remember Grandpa ever driving a car, she always did. She told me that a woman in charge of her own destiny always controls the money. She said never let your husband put his money in the bank without your name on the account. And always be in charge of paying the bills. That way you’ll always know where you stand. She was tough as nails. Once while working in the yard she broke her arm. She walked inside, plopped her arm on the table, and reset it herself. Then she drove herself to the doctor to get a cast, she probably told him how to do it too. She taught me a woman should always speak her mind and never take a back seat to any one.
My mom and my stepfather divorced but she told me I was still her grandchild. After I was grown, she told me it had always made her sad that her grandkids always called her Maye, never Grandma. She was pleased as punch the next time I saw her when my kids gave her a big hug and called her Grandma Maye. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ When we treat all members of society as equals, regardless of gender, race, creed, who we love, or how much money we make, we advance our society and lift everyone up. It’s good for all of us! #womenshistorymonth #diywomenshistory

If there was a glass ceiling that I smashed through, I did so unwittingly. I was just chasing, dreaming, working, relentlessly. Being a woman was never part of the professional narrative in my imagination. But in that I know I am fortunate. I stand on the shoulders of generations of kick-ass women. My maternal grandmother found herself a young divorced woman with three small daughters. She removed the sign on the front door of her apartment that bore her husband’s name and in a then controversial move hammered in a big gold plaque with only HER name. This was her house and her life. Despite no previous work experience, she went on to become one of the first female and one of the most highly sought after directors in Egypt, laying the foundation for our television industry and winning countless awards including being honored by two consecutive Presidents. My mother has fought men, institutions and impossibilities to realize her ambitions or to kick down any hurdles that have ever been put in her family’s way. Mine is a familial legacy of men who stood by and for their women. My paternal grandfather insisted he bring up his only daughter’s young children while she pursued her PhD. My father has spent every day of his life filling my head with outsized dreams and along with them the firm belief that if I work hard enough, and get up every single morning and fight, there is nothing that is unattainable. So for me, it was easy, it was obvious. BUT there are women out there who truly defy the odds, who must imagine, on their own, stories they have never been told.

Jean Griffin Goossen passed away at her home on December 1 at the age of 96. Known for her kindness and grace, she died peacefully, surrounded by family.
Jean never wanted to be the center of attention, but she insisted on being in the middle of the action. She was an adventurer and a true humanitarian. No person in need crossed her path without receiving at least her attention, if not assistance of a more involved nature. She had many strong opinions about politics and culture, yet passed little judgment on people. She broke bread with people from many walks of life, traveled all over the world, and stayed close to friends from her travels until her death.
Jean was born in New York City April 23, 1921 to Robert Allen Griffin and Phyllis Hayes Griffin. Raised with her younger sister Nancy in California’s Carmel Valley, the sisters spent several years in school in Paris, where Jean acquired her love of French. She attended Stanford University, and in her graduating year was one of only three women to receive a BA in Chemistry. In 1946, she married the art critic Eugene Coons Goossen of Gloversville, New York. They had two children, Theodore (Ted) and Mary, both of whom live in Toronto. She divorced in 1972 and subsequently married Donald Ward, who predeceased her in 1985.
Though her first degree was in science, Jean’s deep interest in people led her to study cultural anthropology at Columbia University throughout her forties, receiving her Ph.D. in 1970 with a doctoral thesis titled, Kin to Each Other: Integration in Guadeloupe. For the next 20 years, she taught anthropology at Jersey City State College, and was awarded the honorary title of Professor Emeritus upon retirement. Continued...

.
This is a question I’m getting a lot lately— from my single ladies who are choosing not to have sex while dating and married women in my
tribe who are embracing a “winter” phase in their married sex life and giving themselves permission to say NO to sex right now, so that they
can heal and restore a more authentic YES.
.
Whether you are married, dating, divorced, separated or completely single, this is a question for you…
.

How do you embrace your sexuality whether or not you are having sex? .

I think it’s such a good one because it’s really a deeper question about how we define sexuality— and whether the definition is empowering to us or not. It also asks us to really think about what we
mean when we say “sex.”
.
Western culture tends to equate sex with penetration, or intercourse, but when we define sex this way, it hinders and limits our understanding of what sexuality IS gets.
.
From an Eastern perspective, sex is way more expansive, energetic and cosmic. The tantric view of the universe sees every atom engaged in
erotic relationship. Catholics see the trinity in the similar way….a divine dance.
.
With this more cosmic take on sex, sexuality is way more liberating. From this perspective, the very act of breathing is an erotic exchange and a way we can experience sexuality in a way that is intimate, safe, tender, and sexy.
.
TRUTH: Whether or not you are having intercourse does not make you more or less of a sexual woman.
.
There is so many ideas I have on this topic (and if you are interested in going deeper sign up for Feminine Wholeness University! Come on a Sophia Retreat!), but for the sake of a short IG post, here is how I would advise a friend to embrace her sexuality…
.
Stop defining sex as intercourse alone. Broaden your view of sex into the poetic, metaphoric, energetic experience. With sex liberated from it’s confining definition, your sexuality can be liberated too— and contrary to how things were defined in the 70s, sexual liberation does
not mean sleeping with whomever for whatever reason.
.
What makes you a sexual woman is the face that you are a natural human being... (Con

Never have I ever prayed for a husband. Not because I don’t want one but because that just isn’t my focus! God knows my heart so I personally don’t sit praying for my future spouse but I do seek to be a better person not just for another person but for me! There are ways that I behave that I wish to change! I think that is what requires my prayer and focus. (That’s just me)
That man will come but will you be ready? God knows you don’t want to remain single, He knows you desire to be a wife! But there is no reason why dude should come through having to deal with stuff that you had years to work on. Praying and praying for a man but chances are, in the state that you are in, it’s not going to work. In the state that you are, many relationships/ friendships can not work. I’ve seen women beg God for husbands, but I don’t know of any mother’s son that deserves life in a marriage with them. Sadly we want the joys of it all but forget the part that says “in sickness ... and in poor, ....and in bad” . We want to laugh and giggle and have sex and hold hands and introduce our him as our husband but what about the not so good times that would require us to be still be a GOOD WIFE, a FAITHFUL WIFE, a wife that SERVES and SACRIFICES and SUBMIT! Not a wife that controls, abuses and manipulates to get her way, not a wife that jumps in the phone and speak bad about her husband!!! Not a wife that is prepared to get a divorced if he does ......( whatever is on your “I will Divorce you if you” List .
Pray for him all you want but just make sure being with you isn’t like a death sentence that no one deserves!

Thanks for all of these emails that touch my heart. To all the wives out there struggling to hold your family together, I stand with you. I never imagined that I would be that person that got divorced - until I was. It is an awful truth to acknowledge, especially to my children. It was tough and I'm sorry for all of you who may be enduring a divorce. I pray protection over you that our brothers and sisters in Christ will act in a Biblical manner. The collective church often does not handle divorce well. That's the bad news. The good news is that there is a wonderful, deep-thinking, secret sisterhood of Christian women who have walked a similar path. I was blessed to have my share. I pray that you feel the love and support of this sisterhood just like I did. Hold on, Better days are ahead.

She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children. She has lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds in her 35 years. She got very skinny, and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the morning and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon ... But then I decided to act on it. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on the earth. She is the ideal of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her shoulders. I began to pepper her with flowers, kisses and complements. I surprised her and pleased every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe, but she has blossomed. She became even better than before. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and she loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much.
And then I realized one thing: "The woman is the reflection of her man"" 👏💭👥- Brad Pitt

Having primarily focused on songwriting, she looked into pop and hip hop culture and noticed the void of women in love and in successful relationships. Due to this, she decided to dedicate a year of her time to research and interview women of all walks of life in an effort to determine, WHY are so many of us single? She spoke with women ages 19-35, of all nationalities; who are Single and Satisfied, Divorced, Married, and Dating. She found that while you would think our experiences (with love) are different, the experience is very similar. She found that a lot of US were not taught, and do not know how to apply some of the basic privileges that WE have as Women and WE do not know what those privileges are. A lot of us (Women) are scorned, open to love but guarded, ALL had been cheated on and lied to. WE struggle to feel beautiful from within, unable to love and live freely and had not seen love. With this information, instead of putting it into a Song, she decided to put the findings into 10 poems with the thought in mind “If you knew better you would do better”. This book is the perfect collection of realistic RAW poetry, you will laugh, cry, and most importantly look inside yourself and decide “No More Excuses”

She had a thriving career as a fashion photographer for Harper's Bazaar primarily creating black-and-white images to offer a stronger contrast between her subjects and the clothes being displayed. This approach was unique at the time, and Bassman's work was groundbreaking, allowing for a more artistic approach in an industry that traditionally had strict formats. This experimentation, combined with the close rapport she establishes with her models, has resulted in pictures memorable for their emotional atmosphere, impressionistic mood, and subtlety of intimate gestures. In the period dominated by Avedon and Irving Penn, Bassman was one of the few female photographers in the fashion business, and her work had a distinctly different cast from the outset, one less distancing. In most of the lingerie pictures, for example, the faces are averted or obscured, the result of the Ford agency’s insistence that its models not be identifiable in such provocative advertising. The effect of this constraint is not cold anonymity but an unusual intimacy that leaves the images feeling almost entirely divorced from commodity, as if they were the visual entries in the personal journals of the women photographed. “I am completely tied up with softness, fragility, and the problems of a feminine world.” Being a woman advantaged her, Ms. Bassman felt. “The models thought about this a lot,” she said. “It was a sexually very different thing when they worked with men. They felt a charge. They were posing for men. I caught them when they were relaxed, natural, and I spent a lot of time talking to them about their husbands, their lovers, their babies.” She shifted gears in the early 1970s in response to changing tastes, opting to create her own photo projects and disposing of most of her previous work in the process. Other notable aspects of her work include the graininess of the pictures and the use of geometrics in her subject placement. Interest in her work for Harper's Bazaar was renewed in the 1990s when some photos thought lost were found in the magazine's archives. Bassman passed away in 2012. #wcw #herstory #timeless

That same year i enrolled in a yoga teacher training and went on to teach yoga, run wellness workshops, blog & take private clients as my full time job for 8 solid years. I lived on a meek yoga teacher salary, driving to multiple studios a day, with a plethora of inconsistent ‘side hustles’ & i was exhausted. .
.
Almost 5 years ago i moved my platform online. I put my skepticism aside, connected with a coach & enrolled in her program to break my routine, learn something new & commit to a challenge to better myself. I needed accountability, positive influences, & wanted to make personal changes with people who wouldn’t judge me & didn’t know me. I liked the anonymity of it being like starting at a new school.
.
.
Steve Jobs said it best, '“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.‘. I certainly had every intention of building an online wellness/nutrition focused business, but i had no idea this would be my path or that it would be more than another side hustle of mine. I had no idea it would pave the way for immeasurable personal & business growth, incredible friendships, collaborations, or allow me to follow my passions with health the way I have been able to. .
.
People often see ME now and forget that my journey didn’t unfold overnight & that I’m still seeking new levels of growth for me & my team. Just like the tiny seed knows that in order to grow it needs to be dropped in dirt, covered with darkness, and endure much struggle to reach the light, so do we. I’m currently in a growth phase. I know because it’s exciting, but also feels a lot like I’m germinating in wet heavy soil 🤣. .
.
Perhaps today trust that where you are & your current struggles are exactly what you need to experience for next level growth & celebrate your victories. Mine is surviving 5 years of being a small business owner🤣 & seeing Team Sol Warriors {my once small side hustle} turn into an incredible empire of truly amazing women who are firing their bosses and pursing their dreams💫

Meghan Markle is 36 (almost 37), and she’s getting married to a man who can pass as one of the most eligible bachelors on earth.

She is mixed race.
She is divorced.
She’s been in the media for a long time.
She’s American.
She’s not from a royal home.
She’s older than Prince Harry.
.
She’s broken almost all the rules that makes her eligible to be a wife to a Prince. But, she’s getting married to the Prince, and news have it that she will be walked down the aisle by her to be father in law, Prince Charles.
.
Dear Nigerian single women,
.
STOP BEING DESPERATE!
.
If you are lucky to find the right man at a younger age and you are ready, by all means get married.
.
BUT....
.
Do NOT make the mistake of settling for the wrong man simply because you are over 30 and all your mates are getting married.
.
Wait for the right man.
.
When the right man comes, your age won’t matter much. He will love you for you. He will fight for you against all odds.
.
There are so many beautiful young British women who ticked all the boxes that qualify them to be married to the Prince, but Harry is going for who his heart wants. Seeing that Meghan doesn’t even “fit in”, it’s obvious that Harry fought for her. That’s what your man should do for you.... fight for you.
.
Most women do NOT reach menopause before 45. (Actually, most women in my family reached menopause in their early 50s). But if you are so concerned about biological clock and you really want a biological child earlier in life before 40, there are some options...
.
1. Get pregnant and have a child (out of wedlock).
2. Freeze your eggs.
3. Find other medical means of having a biological child. Medical technology has advanced so much that a woman can now have a biological child almost at any age before 60.
.
Whatever you do, settling for the wrong man shouldn’t be an option.
.
Current world population: Males 50.4% : 49.6% Females.
You see, there are still more males than females on earth. 😐

. 'Taj Saltaneh or Tāj al-Salṭanah (1883 – 25 January 1936) was a Persian princess and memoirist of the Qajar Dynasty, a daughter of Naser al-Din Shah, the King of Persia from 1848 to May 1896 by his wife Turan es-Saltaneh. She was married to Amir Hussein Khan Shoja'-al Saltaneh and had four children, two daughters and two sons. They later divorced. She was the love interest of the famous Persian poet Aref Qazvini, Iran's national poet, who wrote his famous "Ey Taj" poem for her.

Taj Saltaneh was a trailblazer for women's rights in Iran and a feminist. She was a prominent founding member of Iran's underground women's rights group Anjoman Horriyyat Nsevan (The Society of Women’s Freedom), working for equal rights for women circa 1910.

She was a writer, a painter, an intellectual and an activist who hosted literary salons at her house once a week. She was the first woman in court to take off the hijab and wear western clothes.

ผู้หญิงคนนี้อายุ 37 ปี ซึ่งแก่กว่าฝ่ายช่ายด้วยซ้ำ แถมยังเป็นแม่หม้ายที่เคยแต่งงานมาก่อนแล้ว

She's not Royal or an Aristocrat. She's not a virgin.
เธอไม่ใช่คนใหญ่คนโต ไม่ใช่คนชนชั้นสูงส่ง เธอไม่ใช่สาวเวอร์จิ้น

She was an actress and has kissed other men.
เธอเป็นแค่นักแสดงสาว ที่เคยผ่านการจูบชายอื่นมาก่อน

Yet, she married her Prince as an EQUAL PARTNER, Not a submissive slave. She broke barriers. She's happy.
แต่ถึงอย่างนั้น..เธอก็ได้แต่งงานกับเจ้าชายของเธอในฐานะคู่รักอย่างเท่าเทียม มิได้ถูกบังคับ ผู้หญิงคนนี้ทำลายอุปสรรคจนหมดสิ้น จนสุดท้ายเธอก็มีความสุขดี

Her prince is never married. Not divorced like her. He still fell in love with her and married her.
สำหรับเจ้าชายของเธอนั้น..ไม่เคยแต่งงานมาก่อน ไม่เคยผ่านการหย่าร้างมาก่อนแบบเธอ แต่เขาก็ยังคงรัก และเลือกที่จะแต่งงานกับเธอ

Women, know your worth. Making yourself lesser than a man will never get you a husband.
ผู้หญิงทั้งหลาย ทำตัวด้อยค่ากว่าผู้ชายไปก็เท่านั้น ไม่ได้ทำให้คุณหาเจ้าชายของคุณได้หรอก

Don't let anyone make you feel bad because you are a single mother.
จงอย่าให้ใครมาทำให้คุณรู้สึกแย่..แค่เพียงเพราะคุณเป็นซิงเกิ้ลมัม หรือแค่เคยผ่านการแต่งงานมาก่อน

Leave an abusive marriage.
หากการแต่งงานครั้งไหนที่คุณคิดว่ามันไม่เวิร์ค..ก็เดินออกมาซะ

You will still re-marry.
คุณยังแต่งงานใหม่ได้อีกรอบ (กับคนใหม่ที่อาจจะดีกว่าเดิม!) Love yourself first. Treat yourself right.
เอาเป็นว่า..รักตัวเองก่อนนะ ดูแลตัวเองดี ๆ
Because that's how others will love & treat you. Okay?
เพราะเมื่อไหร่ที่คุณรักตัวเอง และดูแลตัวเองดีพอ คนอื่นเขาก็อยากรักและดูแลคุณแบบนั้นเหมือนกัน!

3)Work hard to pick the pieces of your life and start all over again.Don’t give up on yourself.
4)Do not despise the days of humble beginnings.Start small even as a brief case girl but don’t stay small.Dream and think big,stay focused and aim for the stars ✨
5)You may have to kiss a few frogs and dogs before you meet your prince .Don’t give up on love,you’re lovable.The problem is not the intensity of the love but there’s hope that someone will come along and appreciate your true love and love you genuinely too😍
6)Those who did not believe in you will witness what a mighty God can do in your life if you are patient .

Look at the difference between these 2 news pieces and this is one of the reasons we will never evolve with sick mentalities like these!!! Seriously so fed up with the amount of hate festering in our society that one cannot simply be happy for another’s success or happiness, they always have to find something to say. If she marries a prince, her dress was too simple - omg she’s older than him and divorced!!! If she doesn’t get married by 30, she’s labeled as “spinster” ie “m3anse” and everyone keeps fucking asking her why she’s not married yet!!! If she gets divorced then she’s not marriage material!! If she’s beautiful, oh but she’s had too much work done. Khlosna ba2a why don’t you just live and let live?! Why do you need to label everything in our society? Especially our women? Making them actually desperate to get married. Marriage is a personal choice and just because someone isn’t married doesn’t mean they’re not happy but unfortunately society pressures them so much that they start feeling depressed about the fact that they haven’t found that special someone. Just because people got married in their 20s that doesn’t mean they’re happy. So much of our society is just so fake. Baby girl just do you and learn to be okay with that from the inside.
And on a side note: what you choose to do with your engagement, wedding etc is a personal choice however I feel like we’ve lost the simplicity of the meaning of the union between 2 people. A princess got married yesterday in the most simple and regal manner so why is it that all our weddings seem to be way overboard these days? Another societal ordeal about who does the most lavish wedding ... How can you be happy if all you care about is peoples’ opinions of you? #MazaherEtleton

In light of the 8th of March .
I think of my maternal grandma ~
' who lived in a time when
you started working
*~ at 14 ~* .
at.the.local weapon factory..
((yes, we have those in Sweden))
.
then she married rich, the CEOs son.,.
.
turned out he was a drunk,,,
and all the jewelry in the world
couldn't make up for that...
.
so she remarried
. ((wow, scandalous!))
.
got my mother and her sister,,,
.
~ and was so good a secretary ~
that she got a job at
~ the local employment office ~
((they hired her when she
went there looking for work))
'
.
and she built up a large part of ..their internal system ..for processing information...
.
then she divorced my grandpa,
((now people just thought that
she was mentally ill))
.
found the love of her life,
after a lifetime with broken men.
.
she was wonderful in many ways,
BUT, and this is important,
..
....
she was a really bad mother
and a difficult person overall
, she hated being a mother.
Didn't have the touch for it
,,, and,,, .
.
she was really tricky socially. .
.
Loved her cat and her work, and that was that.
.
BUT that is also really ok, because you know what?
.
~ Women are people! ~ '.'.....
.
I get so provoked of all these
. lists of "top 100 powerful women"
. .// let's celebrate strong women etc....
.
.
~~ Let's celebrate all the antisocial, lazy,
. sick, tired, fat and every day women!!! ~~
'
...Let us be everything men have always been allowed to be...
.
.
Oh yes and all I got after Barbro died was this kitchen bench.

"The unnamed narrator of “Motherhood,” Sheila Heti’s earthy and philosophical and essential new novel, is a writer in her late 30s. She smokes; she’s divorced; she lives with her boyfriend in a Toronto apartment that’s pretty but has mice in the walls.

They fight about money, of which there is not enough. She cries a lot, worries about comma placement and has mother issues. She possesses a hard head and a large muse but cannot help but appeal to the rowdier gods — via psychics, tarot card readers and especially I Ching-inspired coin throws — for urgent answers to her pressing problems.

The most salient thing about her is that she does not, she is nearly certain, want a child. This unsentimental position puts her at odds with her friends. Indeed, it puts her at odds with North American and especially her Jewish culture, in which a burden is still placed on women to repopulate after the Holocaust." @nytimes #SheilaHeti #Motherhood
