Another day in Melbourne, another woman raped & murdered on her way home. Aiia Maasarwe was stalked, raped, assaulted & left for dead by a 20-year old man who followed her off the 86 Tram on Wednesday night as she Facetimed her sister in Israel. Just like Jill Meagher & Eurydice Dixon before her, she doesnt get to live her dreams or see her family & friends again. Like SO MANY WOMEN BEFORE HER! Im so sick of hearing about how women need to keep themselves save, shouldnt travel alone etc etc...how about men stop raping & killing us instead? How about men stop thinking they are entitled to our bodies & lives?

_ 이본레이너 는 미국의 현대무용가 겸 안무가, 여성문제를 심도깊게 다룬 감독이다. 1956년 뉴욕에 진출하여 연극배우를 꿈꾸던 이본레이너는 에디스 스티븐 에게 무용을 배워 저드슨 무용단 ( The Judson Dance Theatre) 중심멤버가 되었다고 한다. 기존전통을 비판하고 여자의 몸을 상품화 하는것에 반발하여 헐렁한 바지, 셔츠, 운동화등 실용성을 강조하고 육체를 과시하는것을 최소화한 이본레이너의 생각이 잘 표현된 작품인 < 우리는 달린다 > We Shall Run 은 평상복차림의 공연자들이 약 7분동안 베르로이즈 음악에 맞춰 따로 주역을 정하지 않고, 일반 대중의 영웅적인 모습을 보이려는 의도를 나타내었다. 자신을 ‘정치적 레즈비언’ 으로 규정하는 이본레이너는 일련의 영화들로 ‘여성’ 으로서 자신의 경험을 탐구하여 80년대 중반에 들어서는 여성문제를 심화시킨 작품들을 내놓았다. < 여자를 부러워 하는 남자 > - 1985 ( The Man Who Evied Woman ) 와 완경에 이른 중년 여성을 다룬 < 프리빌리즈 > ( Privilege ) 1990 등 주로 여성문제를 영화적주제로 다뤘고 이 영화로 레이너는 1991년 <선댄스 영화제 > 에서 극영화 부문 감독상을 수상하였다. _ _ #yvonnerainer #choreography #moderndance #choreographer #the60s #feminist #페미니즘 #the80s #film #filmdirector #modernity #weshallrun #페미니스트 #feminism #행위예술가 #일상 #womyn #privilege #이본레이너

I always felt odd and out of place until I created my own space. I struggle with finding the right words at times but I am grateful for the love and support I receive as I share my perception of the world one outfit at a time. . . . . #latina ##artist #creative #art #artlover #create #arte #vibes #flow #houstonart #laart #streetart #dailyart #style #styleaddict #stylelover #houstonfashion #westcoast #streetstyle #bossbabe #womyn #resist #bossbitch #style #styleinspo #streetstyle #bananasplit #icecream #dream
Posted @withrepost@aggressivefemalepositivity What is your relationship with your cycle? ♀ I read a book by Lisa Lister earlier this year that permanently changed my relationship with my female anatomy + my cycle. She is deeply passionate about feminine health on a mental, emotional, physical, + spiritual level. It was uncomfortable to hear her medicine at first. I hated the idea that I was deeply affected by my female anatomy + menstrual cycles because I thought it was regressive + anti-feminist. I was uncomfortable with her focus on vaginas + uteruses. I marinated on her work for some time + I realized that I SHOULD be celebrating my female body. I should embrace my menstrual cycle + honor my needs in each phase of it. I should do it because it is the way forward. Rejecting femininity + what it means to be female, which is having a womb + menstrual cycle, being deeply affected by phases of each cycle, having the power to create + hold life in your womb, + also facing oppression because of those things is not feminist or progressive. Dismissing or ignoring my femaleness is not feminist or progressive. Continuing to reject + devalue femaleness is not feminist or progressive. . From this point forward, I changed my relationship with my cycle. I looked at my bleed as a time to rest + reflect. I realized that if I don’t honor my needs during my premenstrual phase, which is usually more sleep, more food, + more rest + contemplation; my bleed is usually painful and challenging. I have actually come to enjoy my premenstrual + menstrual phases of my cycle because I have fully embraced what they have to offer. I don’t suffer and agonize. . My relationship with my body + my cycle has only changed for the better since then. I challenge you to think about how you feel about your cycle as we move into the new year 💕 . . . #aggressivefemalepositivity #femalepositivity #wombman #periodpositivity #periodpositive #periodpower #yoni #yonipositivity #yonilove #vaginapositivity #vaginapower #wombpositivity #sacredfeminine #divinefeminine #womyn #womxn #wildwomen #celebratewomen #celebratewomyn #sisterhood #celebratefemininity #radicalfeminism #radfem #femaleliberation #female
The Valley’s own Kristy Sandoval & Nate Boyer tackle a complex issue in ‘Indivisible’ - Episode 1: Exploring L.A.’s #NFL community. Watch it here: nfl.com/videos/indivisible
This is a cute picture: my toddler perched on the edge of my bath. Behind the scenes are the waves of fever he rode all week and the way I felt my emotions dissolve with my menses. Gravity - and January- made their presence fully known.
Mary Oliver’s words have been so healing for me in my life. I think I’ve read Wild Geese at least a hundred times. “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting - over and over announcing your place in the family of things.
you keep owning your worth, bbs. in a world that leverages our beautiful identities against us, taking up space is a powerful, powerful thing. #worthywomenrise {image via @theguerrillafeminist }

As a menstrual cup user of almost 4 years... this!!!!!!!!!!! Posted @withrepost@aggressivefemalepositivity So many women avoid eco-friendly menstrual products because they are afraid to get intimate with their own vaginas and menstrual blood. One of my favorite eco-friendly products is the menstrual cup. I love it because I can wear it for long periods of time. ♀ Menstrual cups are made of silicone and all you do when you empty it is remove it, empty it, and then rinse it and reinsert! It is my favorite mess-free way to menstruate. It can be challenging to figure out how to insert them at first, but once you get the hang of it, its amazing! There are lots of tips online that you can find, too. They are a bit spendy initially, but they last for five years and you could save HUNDREDS! ♀ There is another alternative that I like to use because sometimes I just don't want something in my vagina, and its reusable menstrual pads! Basically, these are cloth pads that you wear and when you are done, you wash them in the sink or bathtub to rinse the blood out. At the end of your cycle, you can wash them in the washing machine! There are also different brands of underwear with pads in them that you can use, too! These also last a long time, about 6-7 years, and more with meticulous care! ♀ I love using eco-friendly menstrual products because not only am I not contributing to the billions of disposal products in landfills, I save money, and I was able to move past the shame and avoidance of getting intimate with my own lady parts and menstrual cycles. We should not shy away from our natural bodies and her natural flow. We should celebrate her and love her. All of her. .

this passage is important. and poignantly speaks to what we are called to understand and step into if we want the systemic changes that will allow all of us to thrive in this world: ⠀⠀ “To study psychological trauma is to come face to face both with human vulnerability in the natural world and with the capacity for evil in human nature. To study psychological trauma means bearing witness to horrible events. When the events are natural disasters or “acts of God,” those who bear witness sympathize readily with the victim. But when the traumatic events are of human design, those who bear witness are caught in the conflict between victim and perpetrator. It is morally impossible to remain neutral in this conflict. The bystander is forced to take sides. ⠀⠀ It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering… The study of psychological trauma must constantly contend with this tendency to discredit the victim or to render her invisible.” - Judith Herman ⠀⠀ believing one another, particularly those with lived experiences that so differ from our own, is key.

Not wanting rapists in women's jails or homosexuals castrated isn't a phobia. Being a lesbian isn't a fetish. Trans rights are human rights but transactivism is harmful bullshit. #gendercritical #womyn #actualfeminism #labourlosingwomen #untamableshrews #radicalfeminism #feministzine

"You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously." Sophia Bush a poem I found while navigating my good docs. it gives me a dose of inspiration and I hope it gives you one too. it's never too late. 💙 it's not too late for the addicts, felons, and convicts. I believe in second chances. and I believe people can turn their lives around. People make poor choices but there is hope for them and hope for me too. #hope #dreams #normals #selflove #dreams #hope #movies #quotes #children #spirt #heart #dreams #love #relationships #happiness #hope #heart #peace #wonder #heart #life #fairytale #dreams #wonder #power #womyn #feminism #hope #strength #women #undiscovered #judgement #depression #mentalhealth #life #people #undiscovered #heart #pain #strength #survival #sensitive
anxiety. fear. depression. sorrow. doubt. worry. these are all emotions that are part of the human condition. we can't rid ourselves from them. however, we can choose not to be overcome by them by practicing mindfulness, gratitude, and surrounding ourselves with that which brings us joy. #hope #dreams #normals #selflove #dreams #hope #movies #quotes #children #spirt #heart #dreams #love #relationships #happiness #hope #heart #peace #wonder #heart #life #fairytale #dreams #wonder #power #womyn #feminism #hope #strength #women #undiscovered #judgement #depression #mentalhealth #life #people #undiscovered #heart #pain #strength #survival #sensitive

This is me feeling kinda okay with my #endometriosis pain: not crying, not screaming, burning myself between my legs with a heating pad, watching Netflix because I can’t read even though I desperately want to, heating medicated patches, tissues, and being bed ridden. The past two days have mostly been me screaming and crying, all hopped up on pain meds, wondering what the fuck I’m harboring that is contributing to the most intense endo pain I’ve had in over a decade. But I feel power in speaking about my pain, as I always have. Usually I speak of mental pain, but this week I speak of physical pain and the mental toll it takes. So much love to my fellow endo womxn out there. Our pain is real. . . . . . . #menstruation #periods #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #pain #selfcare #periodproblems #mentalhealth #physicalhealth #mentalillness #physicalillness #howtodeal #feminism #woman #womxn #womyn #speakup #littleton #colorado #chronicillness #chronicpain #hurting #bedridden #fuckthis
🌕CYCLE DAY 23🌑 I've paid more attention to my moon cycle this time around and have even taken to journaling my feelings. Today on #cd23 I feel weary and my brain is foggy. I'm easily jaded. My creativity is subdued. I'm contemplative. And I just want to be ALONE. As I drew this to express my feelings, the word solitude floated in my mind. See, being alone right now is something I savor. I don't necessarily feel bad, I just feel different and want to withdraw and embrace myself. #wombwellness #wombwisdom #knowyourflow #premenstrual #darkfeminine

I think we live in a culture that pathologizes people who have strong feelings. who are sensitive. who care more than most. ⠀⠀ for us women, I think this is especially true when we are talking about feelings like anger. or anxiety. or sadness. we are so quick to declare that there’s a problem there that needs to be fixed rather than being in inquiry as to the trauma or wounding that lead us to those feelings or honoring us for our sensitivity and emotional intelligence. ⠀⠀ it’s no wonder highly sensitive folks often feel dismissed and broken. “if only I didn’t feel so much” becomes our mantra, guilt and shame become our security blanket. ⠀⠀ well, let me tell you what they won’t: your sensitivity, your feelings, your caring, is your super power. ⠀⠀ in a world that so desperately needs more heart, do not let our emotionally illiterate culture rob you of your greatest strength. you feeling is what gives this whole human thing meaning. #worthywomenrise

A little over 6 months ago, Ireland repealed its cruel and draconian law which banned abortion in almost all circumstances. Thousands and thousands of Irish citizens came home JUST to vote in favor of abortion rights. 66.4% of Irish came out of the repeal. 💕✊🏻 . . . The Irish prime minister said of that day: “It’s a day when we say no more. No more to doctors telling their patients there’s nothing can be done for them in their own country, no more lonely journeys across the Irish Sea, no more stigma as the veil of secrecy is lifted and no more isolation as the burden of shame is gone.” . . . And on January 1, 2019, Ireland’s women gained the right to safe, legal, and free abortion up to 12 weeks. There’s a lot more work to do to get that expanded, and ensure all people in Ireland can actually access abortion, but it’s a grand victory nonetheless. Ireland has finally seen what we all know: the human rights are women’s right, and women’s right are human rights. . . . #abortionislove
“Even if we all decided to define personhood to include fertilized eggs and embryos and fetuses, they would not have the right to use a woman’s body against her will and at whatever cost to herself. Persons are NOT entitled to use one another like that.” . . . No one, including an embryo/fetus, has the right to use your body against your will. Abortion is the rightful revocation of consent to continue a pregnancy, and will forever be just, moral, and essential to personal autonomy. . . . Quote from Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights by Katha Pollitt . . . #abortionislove
Your dream might be to be a CEO. Or it might not be. Your dream might be to have a huge wedding. Or it might not be. Your dream might be to be a parent. Or it might not be. Whatever you dream is, it’s valid, and nothing should force you to give it up unless that’s what YOU want to do. . . . I dream of a world where no woman feels shamed or alone because of her decision to end her pregnancy. . . . #abortionislove
“Often when somebody has an abortion, it’s the same celebration, it’s the same joy, it’s the same relief that is present when I’m helping a woman have a baby,” said Dr. Yashica Robinson, who maintains a private OB-GYN practice in Huntsville, Alabama, while also providing abortion care at the Alabama Women’s Center. “Being able to be there for women, allowing them to exercise their right to choose, and then seeing their relief and gratitude when they leave the clinic … it’s overwhelming.” . . . If this is the joy you need - the joy of freedom, know that it is truly yours for the taking. You do not have to feel ashamed for seizing something you deserve. . . . https://rewire.news/article/2018/11/30/why-now-more-than-ever-we-need-shout-your-abortion/ . . . #abortionislove
#BeBoldEndHyde Politicians have used the Hyde Amendment, which denies coverage for abortion care for those insured through Medicaid, to interfere in women’s health decisions. For those who are struggling to make ends meet—including people of color, low-income women, young folks, queer folks, trans folks and immigrants and refugees—a coverage ban might as well be a ban on abortion all together. . . . But with a record number of Democratic women elected to office in November and their party holding the majority in the House next year, momentum is building to lift this ban. . . . Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) told ThinkProgress she will re-introduce the EACH Woman Act for the second time next year; the legislation ensures that anyone who gets health care through the federal government will have coverage for abortion services and that legislators cannot interfere with what private insurance covers. . . . You can learn more about efforts to overturn the Hyde Amendment at @allaboveall and @allaboveallact
Let us celebrate our freedoms fiercely, let us smile at the sky and open our arms in gratitude for the joy of being free to make our own choices, and let us forever hold these freedoms close to our hearts. 💕 #abortionislove
One of the things about pregnancy is that a pregnant person has the ability to consent to letting a fetus use the woman’s body to sustain the other. A woman can withdraw that consent at any time, for any reason. And that’s why birth is gift! #abortionislove
For so many women, abortion is way to be FREE and reclaim power. We deserve to be free. We deserve to have our freedom respected. #abortionislove
Can you imagine if the 1 in 4 women in America who’ve had abortions walked out of work one day to protest the draconian direction of the government in oppressing women’s rights?! It would be incredible. And powerful. Close your eyes and imagine standing with them. Imagine their energy. Imagine the rush of collective power. The whole world would have to stop and listen to women who know what’s best for their bodies. #abortionislove
