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.
Let’s not forget that these ladies are STILL out there grinding on the front lines for feminism.
what others call a rebellious phase I call the sudden realization I don’t deserve to be treated like garabge
What girls look for in guys
- brown eyes
- messy hair
- cute nose
- 4 paws
- golden retriever
but a man looking for a certain thing in girls? misogyny right? guys can’t be like “I look for girls who wear glasses and are thin and like to talk” nope that’s misogyny and it’s horrible. “equality”
oh my god did you even bother reading the post -______-
"not ALL dogs"
girl: i love you
me: welcome to the club
girl: *gets offended and walks away*
me: …u were the first member
like if u cried
do u ever miss a friend but u don’t want to tell them bc they’re probably doing perfectly fine without u and to them it probably doesn’t even matter and so u don’t want them to think ur annoying or needy
never let your printer know that you waited until the last minute to print something and you’re in a hurry. they can sense fear
i may act like i’m sassy but if you’re mean to me there is a 900% chance i’ll cry
