The most alluring thing a woman can have is Confidence – Beyoncé
Women all around the world are being celebrated this month because it’s Women's History Month. Women are God’s finest and beautiful creation and as givers of life there would be no life without women. I’ve been asking myself all day what feminism means to me and I’d like to share my thoughts.
A feminist is defined as a person who believes in the social, political, and economical equality of the sexes. I can’t help finding myself quoting Beyoncé when it comes to my feminist views. “We teach girls to have ambition but not too much, aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.” Women have been fighting for equality since the beginning of time from the suffrage movement, to gaining the right to vote, to the Lily Ledbetter Act. We’ve definitely come a long way but we have so much further to go. Women are one of the strongest creatures on earth. They tried to bury us but didn’t know we were seeds. Behind every successful woman is a tribe of successful women who have her back. So let’s celebrate our beautiful friendships today!! I could rattle off quotes all day but I’ll leave you with one of my favorites.
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
