International Women's Day

We’re going on year four of celebrating Women’s Day on WDAC. It’s something so important to me that I feel it needs its own dedication each year. (although the official day is tomorrow, it's never too early) Since starting my feminist journey, (is that a thing? let’s go with it) with each year I've become increasingly thankful and overwhelmed in the best way by the strength that we have as women, and the way we stick together. 

A woman on her own is a powerful force, but powerful women coming together for the greater good, as they say, is a force like no other. A force to be reckoned with.

"What she tackles, she conquers" is a line spoken by the great Richard Gilmore in reference to Rory, and it's a line worth noting in reference to every woman, of every color, in every country.

What we tackle, we conquer.

The title photo featuring an article from Glamour asks "What does sisterhood mean to you?" To me, it means togetherness. It means fighting for one another, even when it would be so much easier to sit still & look pretty. It means knowing there is a multitude of voices behind you, fighting for you. Loving you. It means being a sister to strangers, loving them. To me, it's synonymous with feminism, a word that sometimes still has negative connotations attached to it. But for me, there are none.

Something I'm learning in my 20s is that the strength of a good, full on "girl gang" (kinda cringe, but kinda love it) is crucial. Inspiring, powerful women leave you feeling strong and inspired, which is why I choose to surround myself with them, both on the internet and in real life. I could drone on for hours, really, about how emotional feminism makes me and how inspired I feel, but I'll spare you.

Instead, I'll just tell you to keep tackling. Keep speaking up and speaking out. Keep conquering, and most importantly, keep loving. You are all saucy, badass babes and don't you forget it.
