Happy International Women’s Day!

Every day should be devoted to women, but today it’s official!

Today, is for all women around the world. We support all those who identify as women, regardless of race, religion, sexuality, biology. We stand with all women, regardless of the differences between our experiences and their experiences. We  make an effort to listen to each other and understand what we cannot personally relate to. We celebrate each other and resist urges to tear each other down. We are inclusive and intersectional. We exist loudly and proudly. We demand more space for those who have consistently been denied it. Today, we fight for all women around the world.

Happy International Women’s Day!

Here are a few of my favorite feminist instagrams for an extra aesthetically pleasing day! Enjoy! Sorry I didn’t write more I’ll try harder next time my b!

@dazed asked me to contribute an illustration to their article entitled: “What it means to be a woman today, illustrated”, and this was my contribution and the thought behind it: I believe in the feminist understanding that ‘the personal is political’ (as coined by Carol Hanisch). I believe that personal experiences are influenced by a larger political climate and that sharing our stories can be a radical feminist act. Yet, while individual stories are important, they are not universal. On days like International Women’s day (or every day for that matter) it is crucial that we make room for multiple stories to coexist without hierarchy and to remember that the definition of the word “woman” should be inclusive, expandable and intersectional. 💖💕❤️💖💕❤️💖💕❤️💖💕❤️ #internationalwomensday #iwd2016 #feminism #pink #drawing #ambivalentlyyours
