Happy Woman History Month!
“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them”
I’m so excited for this month of March, it’s all about celebrating women. We women had to come a long ways, especially the women of color.
We had to fight for our rights to vote, work and our acceptance in society as more than being just a pretty face. You know what gets me angry the most is when I see other women putting others down without the consideration of what themselves has to face everyday. I think it’s crazy to me ,considering the amount of critics that we face everyday that we can’t support each others.
As I was getting to reflect increasingly on what us women mean to this world, I came to the REALIZATION that we are what keeps the world going.
I am happy that I came into this world as a woman. Even though I still think that we have a long way to go until we can be a part of something without feeling as if we don’t belong.
In 2016, you still see that women are victim of sexism. I’ve heard some ridiculous opinions on the role women, where both men and women think that it’s the woman’s role to know how to cook and be a housewife by definition. Which I think is utterly disrespectful. I know that I should learn how to cook, clean and take care of a House but at the same time, my father always taught me that as a woman I should not only learn how to cook I should as well get a degree in something (which I was grateful for). I think it’s interesting to watch the red carpet, you’ll see that they’d ask a woman more about what they are wearing or who are they with instead of being interested in the role that they played in the movie. As much as I’m intrigue on what they are wearing I’m more interested in learning more about the movie they are in. It’s always like that In the talk shows they go too. Even though some of the actresses be playing the most iconic role seriously though it would get overlooked.
When I took that sexism class, I used to get soooo ANGRY When I used to think about how women were treated. We had to watch 2 movies of Whoopi Goldberg which were “The Color Purple” and “The Associate”(which wassss my favorite, y’all should definitely watch this movie. As funny it was there’s a lot to learn). After seeing those movies I got a better understanding of what Women were considered to be. Which I’m grateful I wasn’t born during that period of time, don’t know how I would have made it through.
Women are SUPER HEROES!!!
I want to thank all of the amazing women who pave the ways for us: Michelle Obama, Hilary Clinton, Rosa Parks and all of the other women who worked hard for all of us who will not have to be victims of certain discrimination. As well as televisions for having strong lead women’s in movies and tv shows, such as Scandal, Greys, Being Mary Jane, Hart of Dixie just to name a few. I think it’s pretty refreshing for us to have them as an example in front of us.
We are not defined by our hair, physique, and beauty or by what we can or can not do. To all of those amazing mothers that are raising strong, independent, beautiful woman, especially my beautiful Mother, you are our SUPER HEROS
Let’s all cheers to us being beautiful women from the inside & out! 💁🏾🍸
