Feminism Is Irrelevant (To Me)

Women Waiting

I’ve really gotten into women’s issues lately but in the process I’ve realized I’m not a feminist. I’m not sure I ever was, but now I’m sure I’m not! I’m a Feminista! There have been various “waves” of feminism , which make distinctions in the category of “promote women over (blank)”. The blank could be men, the system, everything else… it doesn’t matter. To me it all says, give us rights and opportunities because we’re women, we have great things to offer and you need us.

Hillary Clinton Erased From Historic White House Photo

Women have been erased from history for millennia. Countless courageous events led by women have gone unwritten or rewritten in the history books. Yet, in the age of feminism in modern times, we assume this doesn’t happen anymore, right?

Wrong.

According to CNN, the uber-Orthodox Jewish publication Di Tzeitung, a Hasidic newspaper based in Brooklyn, New York, whited out Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Audrey Tomason, director of counterterrorism from the now iconic “Situation Room Photo” take while President Obama monitored the raid on bin Laden’s compound.

Just like that. Zip. Gone. The two women present no longer exist with a swipe of Photoshop.

Are You A Succulent Wild Woman? (Happy International Women's Day!)

powerful ass women

Are you fed up with feeling like you have to dim your light so you won’t make other women feel bad? Are you frustrated when something AWESOME happens in your life and you don’t feel like you can shout it from the rooftops because you might trigger someone who is too insecure to hear your good news? Do you prefer hanging out with women who lift you up, collaborate, and blow pixie dust beneath your mighty wings, rather than those who compete, gossip, and drag you down?

If so, this post is for you because you’re a SUCCULENT WILD WOMAN, to borrow a killer phrase from my friend SARK (aka, Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy). Today is International Woman’s Day, and I was honored to have an International Woman’s Day award bestowed upon me (deep bow. Namaste, my sisters). So in honor of this powerful day, I wanted to honor the power within each and every one of you.

Are You A Feminista?

feminista

Today, many modern day feminists (aka “feministas”) want to reclaim their power without giving up the feminine. You can be a powerful, fierce, kick-ass, successful woman and also happen to have a hankering for pink fur sandals, pedicures, sparkly bling, drum circles, green juice, and goddesses. Being a feminista means being authentic in all walks of life. For some, that means burning your bra. For others, it means wearing pink boas. As far as I'm concerned, true feminism means the power to choose -- blue suit or pink evening gown, full-time career or stay-home parenting, weight lifting or pole dancing, sweat suits or bikinis, braless or lacy thongs.
