Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
yess my whole life yo
*white person voice* i’m finna to have a good day
*another white person voice* finna is a slur towards Finnish people, could you not use that termDefine a “white” voice. People of any race can be raised with any accent. Culture is not race. Yet this is an example of why racism exists. The mindset to say something fucking stupid like this.
An accurate representation of my social skills
She looks like a poem. God was the poet.
Nicki Minaj speaking on why she hired Vlogger Beat Face Honey as her personal makeup artist
"She shook her ass in a video and she raps about sex. She’s a terrible role model."
Fuck Yeah Women of Color
People have a knack of really oversimplifying feminism like “feminism: the radical notion that women are people” or “feminism is literally just believing in equality” like…no it’s not it’s so much more complex than that ask any dingus if they think women and men should be equal they’ll probably say yeah but their actions and thoughts probably majorly contradict that so quit acting like anyone’s a feminist if they vaguely believe women are ok humans
IS BEING HYDRATED REALLY WORTH ALL THIS PEEING?
So you understand that little white girls seeing only thin white girl’s being showcased, praised and adored, can fuck them up. But you don’t get why Black and Brown kids seeing white faces constantly is a problem. Okay.
