To every single person who stands up for the greater good — to the women who bare their souls sharing #metoo experiences again and again because men still don’t believe us — to the students here in #Ontario who walked out of class this past week because they’re more educated about consent than our government will ever be — to everyone who supports victims and believes them — to everyone who gives a voice to people and animals who don’t have one — to everyone who fights for justice, thank you. You have shone so much light on my week and I appreciate and support and admire you. . This lipstick makes me feel powerful. It makes me feel confident. It makes me feel encouraged, even amidst everything negative in the world. . In my darkest times, I have hidden behind loud appearances. A physical shield. This lipstick has often been mine.

#whyididntreport I was 17 years old when I was raped. I knew him. I was ashamed. I spent years trying to block this reality and pretend it didn’t happen. I tried to brush it off and not admit to myself and to the world that it happened. It happened. I am lucky to have survived and I spend every single day grateful for my life. A man who is accused of raping a woman does not deserve to sit on the highest court of law and to decide the rights of women. Women deserve better. Men deserve better. This country deserves better. Christine Blasey Ford is a brave woman. I stand in solidarity with her and with the countless women and men who have been assaulted. #metoo #womendeservebetter #mendeservebetter #wedeservebetter #postponethevote #votethemout #womensrightsarehumanrights #enough #believewomen #believe 📸 @themichaelkushner
*VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED We must hold ourselves and others accountable for the disrespect of our women. If there is no killing in us to protect our women then we are not worthy to live. We must make our communities a decent and safe place to live and that may require discipline as a last resort. We must educate on #domesticviolence and offer real preventative and proactive solutions. #conflictresolution #conflictresolutioncenters #khalilabdulmuhammad #stoptheviolence #stoptheviolenceagainstwomen #womensequalityday #womensrightsarehumanrights #womensrights #islam #protect #respect #love #peace
"Boys will be boys" enables and fosters the rape culture. Brett Kavanaugh is an example of a man who grew up in that culture. He has forfeited his right to be on the Supreme Court where he will be deciding cases in which one of the parties seeks control over women's bodies. #metoo #enoughisenough #misogyny #stopkavanaugh #oldwhitemen #womensrightsarehumanrights #womensrights #reproductiverights #prochoice
It may be hard to read but my earrings say feminist lol. Feminist: someone who believes in the social, political, and economical equality of the sexes. Or in this case, everyone. Friendly reminder that feminism isn’t “anti-men”, it’s about the fact that almost everyone women I know has been sexually harassed or assaulted at one point in their lives (me included), it’s about the fact that up to 75% women are MURDERED when they “just leave him”, it’s about unequal pay, its about education for young girls, it’s about “honor killings”, it’s about sex, it’s about SOOO MUCH MORE. Women are often criticized to be the “weaklings”, when it’s in fact the total opposite. Yes men go through A LOT a well and feminism is for them too, it’s for everyone ! I hate hearing “I’m not a feminist because I don’t hate men, I’m for everyone”......right so......you’re a feminist basically. I encourage everyone to research statistics, facts, views, videos, history, EVERYTHING. Knowledge is power and I’ve learned that only good can come from trying to be a better person than you were yesterday. • • • #feminist #feminism #womensrights #womensrightsarehumanrights #womenempowerment #women #love
It shouldn’t matter if it happened 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago. Because it happened. Because she (and any survivor) will have to carry it with her (him/them) despite how much time passes. #WhyIDidntReport #MeToo #TimesUp #BelieveWomen
Feeling many strong feelings about the generational potential for a few men to continue to make badly educated, dangerous choices about the healthcare and rights of women in this country. It's encouraging to see so many women standing up and running for office this November, so please get out and vote! 💪🏼 (The deadline to register is October 9th!) We desperately need women's voices in the conversation about our own bodies and freedoms. I created this print with strong convictions in my heart to use my art as a force for what I believe in. 🌹 I believe we need women in the conversation. I believe women who say #metoo because, well, Me Too. 😔 I believe that women have untapped potential for diplomacy, healing and cooperation in our government. It's so desperately needed, when our equality and autonomy is at stake. We are the ones we are waiting for. ✨We just need to show up when it counts. ✨Are you going to the polls in November? ✨Can I get a shout out?! . Prints are available in my shop, link in bio. 20% of all sales of these prints are donated to supporting women's organizations. 🙌🏼 . If you’d like to unfollow me because of my political views or outspokenness... totally fine, no need to let me know. Wishing you well, but I'm not going to compromise on my views or my right to speak to keep up a follower count of people who don't align with me or my brand. 👋🏼 . . . #womensrights #kamalaharris #getoutthevote #rockthevote #womenwhoillustrate #womenwhoillustratewomen #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #equalrights #womensrightsarehumanrights #wearethewomen #stopkavanaugh

"But it's precisely because we are the ones who feel the deepest pain, because we [experience] the greatest oppressions, that we women are also capable of feeling the deepest rage. And we must be able to transform that rage in an organized way in order to go on the offensive to dismantle the power from above, building with determination and without fear, the power from below." - Powerful words by María de Jesús Patricio Martínez Marichuy, the first indigenous woman to run for President in Mexico (taken from an interview with @vice ) 📸 @greciaerives
#FeministaFriday Take that dream and vision and pursue it wholeheartedly---working towards that dream/vision everyday. Eliminate all distractions (people, mindsets, things, etc.) that keep you from that destiny. Gone are the days of hiding or making yourself small to appease those around you! We need your genius to shine brightly to BE and CREATE the change we need in our world!

Please call and call and explain to these republicans that prochoice is NOT proabortion.

This year’s International Day of Peace celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Check out our resources about the Rohingya (DM or link in bio) and see what @global_justice_center has just published as well: ・・・ This week, we released the first comprehensive legal analysis of the gender-based crimes committed against #Rohingya women and girls in Rakhine State, amounting to crimes against humanity and genocide. Too often, the female victims of atrocity crimes are overlooked, their experiences lost in a narrative of violence centered around mass killings. This report highlights the central role that gender played in the design and commission of the atrocities carried out against the Rohingya. 📷: Anna Dubuis/DFID Read the full legal analysis on our website: www.globaljusticecenter.net . . , #RefugeeCrisis #HumanitarianAid #Feminist #WomenEmpowerment #HumanRights #activism #Burma #GenderEquality #WomensRights #socialjustice #Humanitarian #RefugeesWelcome #SaveTheWorld #hope #genocide #Refugee #rohingya #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #WomenLeaders #WomenLeadership #WomenLead #SocialActivism #rakhine #rohingyamuslims

#Repost @grl_trbl with @get_repost ・・・ The greatest way we could have honored Anita Hill is by listening to victims of sexual harassment and assault. In 1991, when asked if then Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas had ever sexually harassed her, Anita answered truthfully. He did. Anita went on to be publicly smeared by the media and senate judiciary committee. Clarence Thomas became a Supreme Court Justice and still is today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's happening with Brett Kavanaugh mirrors what happened 27 years ago. It's deflating, sad, and infuriating. But women have a way of taking their anger and turning it into change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1992, following Anita Hill's testimony, came the Year of the Woman. That year more women were elected into the Senate than ever. Let's do this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #anitahill #metoo #herstory #yearofthewoman #believewomen #womensrightsarehumanrights #blackwomen #brettkavanaugh #sexualassault #womenarestrong #electwomen #voteforwomen #rapesurvivor #takebackthenight

Teach little girls that their bodies are their own and that all bodies are great bodies. Teach them that their bodies are wise and can be trusted. Teach them about personal boundaries and how no one should touch them without their permission. Teach them that when it comes to their bodies, it is their choice. Teach them more about sex than that if they have it before marriage they are sluts, or will get STDS, or will get pregnant. ••• There was no emphasis on any of those things when I was growing up. Instead, the world taught me that my body was not my own. That my dad and school administrators were in charge of what I wore. That where my body was allowed to move in space was different from my brothers' bodies. That my body and its functions were a confusing mix of shameful, sexual, unclean, and not okay. That periods, masturbation, and sex were dirty secrets. That I exist for male pleasure, so if he wants sex and I don't, I should suck it up. That if sex hurts but he's enjoying it, then I should grit my teeth. The virgin or the whore and guilt no matter which one. ••• Me too. Her too. All of us. When we don't teach little girls at every turn that their bodies are their own and that they are magnificent and not broken, they grow into women who think it's okay for others to comment on and make suggestions for their bodies. They grow into women disconnected from their bodies who diet and use exercise as punishment. They grow into women who think they have to let men do things to them because it would be rude not to. They grow into women who put everyone's needs before their own. They grow into women who confuse physical attention for worthiness, belonging, and love. ••• So in case no one ever told you: your body is not a democracy. It is a goddamn dictatorship run by you. You decide what you wear. You decide what you eat and how you move. You decide who can touch you and under what circumstances. Because you exist for you.

I have become too angry. I haven’t called my senators in months. If it’s not already obvious that immigrants — documented or not — are humans deserving dignity and respect, I’m not sure what I can say to you. If your years of education and experience hasn’t taught you that women are people too and that the numbers of assaults on them are depressingly large but the numbers of false accusations by them are pretty low and seriously, how #blessed are you Mitch McConnell that you’ve lived so long without encountering anyone to open up a space of empathy in your heart for women who have been assaulted, carried those fears for decades alone, and been hesitant to come forward for whatever their reason. It doesn’t matter why they were silent for a time but what happened to them matters. It matters. It matters. It matters. It matters. I just don’t know what to do anymore except for donating and volunteering and voting voting voting. Now back to eating my feelings. And sitting down with Lee so we can pick which weekends which of us is going to canvass. I might need some Florence and the Machines too. #throwshadethenvote #womensrightsarehumanrights #medicareforall #isitnovemberyet
#FBF to 1993 when then-Supreme Court nominee Ruth Bader Ginsburg took a strong stand to defend a woman's right to choose during her four days of questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Our activists have been writing letters to Penny Mordaunt, the Minister for Women and Equalities, asking her to back repeal of articles 58 and 59 of the offences against the person act. This would legalise abortion across the U.K., and allow Northern Ireland to legislate their own laws on women's healthcare. We urge you all to write letters to @pennymordauntmp or your local representative, and ask them to trust women with their own bodies 💛. . . . #pennypost #trustwomen #mybodymychoice #repealgram #siarc #mymindmybodymychoice #northernireland #womensupportingwomen #womensrightsarehumanrights

I’m afraid too many old white men with extraordinary power still do not understand. So we need to remind them, over and over and over again. Register to vote. And vote them out. ▪️ I believe Dr Blasey Ford because a shockingly similar thing happened to me 25 years ago and I REMEMBER. CLEARLY. I’ll never forget. And neither will she. I too walked away and vowed to never tell anyone, and I didn’t, for years. And for years it affected my confidence and self-worth. Not anymore. ▪️I’m sick and tired of the doubt and hand-wringing and searching for any and every excuse not to hear us and see us and believe us. It is exceedingly rare for a woman to lie about a story like this. Ask yourself why anyone would put themselves through this if it wasn’t true. And call your senators. Then call Senator Collins and Senator Murkowski and Senator Jones and tell them women are watching. Teenage girls are watching. And their action or inaction on the nomination of a credibly accused attempted rapist to our nation’s highest court will not be forgotten. ▪️#minnesotanasty #womensrightsarehumanrights #registertovote #votethemout #ibelievedrford #ibelievechristineblaseyford #ibelievechristine #ibelieveanitahill #metoo

The news cycle is so soul crushing I’m just posting this to remember the #womensmarch & flooding the streets alongside women and men. Mostly just to help myself remember that there are more good people than bad out there. It’s here if you needed that reminder too. Democracy and our rights are fragile- please don’t remain silent on things that matter. We need the good hearted to be loud.
