“Be bold. Step out. And never walk on tiptoes, because anyone who walks on tiptoes can never leave footprints for people to walk in.” Day 97/100: Leymah Gbowee. #100daysofaweinspiringwomen Leymah Roberta Gbowee (born 1 February 1972) is a Liberian peace activist. Gbowee was recognized as the spokeswoman and inspirational leader of the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, described as a peace movement that started with local women praying and singing in a fish market. Working across religious and ethnic lines, Gbowee led thousands of Christian and Muslim women to gather in Monrovia for months. They prayed for peace, using Muslim and Christian prayers, and eventually held daily nonviolent demonstrations and sit-ins in defiance of orders from the tyrannical president at that time, Charles Taylor. Her efforts to end the Second Liberian Civil War, helped usher in a period of peace and enabled a free election in 2005. She, along with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakkul Karman, were awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work. - - - - - - #leymahgbowee #leymahrobertagbowee #peaceactivist #the100dayproject #wonderwomen #womenwelove #feminism #drawingoftheday #drawing #painting #paintingoftheday #illustration #illustrator #illustrationoftheday #digitalpainting #digitalpaint #digitalillustration #procreateapp #procreateappart #procreate #ipadpro #ipadproart #handlettering #lettering #biography #minibio #womenofwonder #realwonderwomen

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."
The point of feminism is to give women a choice. To do what they will with their bodies and minds. To own their sexuality, to find equal footing in society. And so, it is disconcerting when people question the intention behind something as trite a woman's choice of clothes, or lack thereof. One of the biggest examples is Instagram itself. While men get to post pictures of themselves shirtless, women's posts are deleted when they do. How is a women to be comfortable in her own skin if you continue to sexualize every part of her body? How is it okay for people to call out women who post pictures of themselves in "skimpy" clothes? Why does a woman not have the right to her own body? Why does everyone have an opinion on a women's bodies? Who defines what risqué is? Is what is provocative subjective? Fashion and beauty play a large role in the attitudes of society. And I hope, in the near future, we're able to break gender stereotypes and decrease gender gaps. I also envision a future where people of all genders are able to freely express themselves, through fashion, beauty, food, and whatever else, without being judged. #rantover #feminist #feminism #feministAF #womankind #freedomofexpression #freedomofspeech #freethenipple #provocative #letstalk #gendergap #genderdivide #genderroles #genderbender #freespeech #liberalAF #liberals #beautywithapurpose #fashionwithapurpose #thepurpose #makingitright #turningbacktime #instafocus #whatmatters #thingsthatmatter #causesthatmatter #mycause

why does it fit so well
25 years ago this month one of my all time favorite TV shows debuted. And since about the mid 90’s these two figurines have been on every desk or shelf in any classroom or office I have occupied in my career. X-Files mixed my three favorite things: the sci-fi genre, procedural investigations and a great female lead. X-Files was one of my favorite shows because it subverted gender norms at the time. Agent Scully was the more well educated and far more pragmatic of the two lead characters. While Agent Mulder was the far more emotionally driven and irrational character who often times needed to be rescued. The gender swap dynamic of the overly emotional man and rational levelheaded woman was a welcome storyline when I was in my 20s. Now it’s hardly surprising that Scully remains an imperfect feminist icon as the creator and all of the writers were men. But I still appreciate the show so very much. It was a start for me in the idea of thinking about feminism in the workplace. I truly wish in the last 25 years I could say we’ve come so much farther than this time. But we haven’t and that has been made abundantly clear these last few weeks, months and years. We still have a lot of work to do. And I’m grateful for the women and men who stand up for a equality and justice. #thisiswhatfeminismlookslike #clergylife #feminism #persisterhood #resisterhood #reclaimingmytime #xfiles #agentscully
