"is there an international men’s day?" yes actually! it’s tomorrow! and the next day! and the day after! and every other day of every year
if “girls aren’t supposed to have body hair” then why do girls have fucking body hair?
Happy International Women’s Day!
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
We hope you have a great International Women’s Day.
This year, 14 million young girls will be married against their will and nearly 1 million girls will be sold into slavery. To commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8, the women’s rights organization Catapult demonstrates that these aren’t stats but human lives.
“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”
