susan b anthony was not a feminist. she worked only to attain voting rights for white women; she did not stand for women of color and does not deserve to represent the suffrage movement. white women could vote by 1920, but native american women did not have that right until 1924, chinese immigrants did not have it until 1943 and though black women were also granted the right in 1920 they suffered from extreme voter suppression and most didn’t really get to vote until 1965. you stand for all women or you stand for no women #rosecoloredactivist feminism #feminist#activism#activist#lgbt#womenssuffrage#susanbanthony
Feminism is a movement for equal rights, particularly women’s rights. But so many people mistake it for man-hating, which shows just how male-centric our society is. How did a movement that champions women’s rights, that’s all about uplifting women’s voices and fighting for our right to exist safely in this world, become about men? . Feminism isn’t anti-men. In fact, we recognize that men play a role in achieving equal rights for all. As feminists, we want to let you know that we don’t hate you. We’re not out to get you. We don’t want to dominate or oppress you. What we really want is to be treated equally and to enjoy the same liberties that you have. If that comes across as man-hating to you, then you need to reevaluate how you look at the world. . The real enemies of feminism are the patriarchy and toxic masculinity. Feminists want to abolish a system that prefers and protects one gender over others, and we want “alpha male” expectations (stoicism, dominance, violence, aggression, etcetera) to stop existing so that boys can grow up with the freedom to express their emotions and to embrace their feminine qualities. We need feminism because toxic masculinity hurts boys too. We’re feminists and we care about male victims of sexual assault. We’re feminists and we want stay-at-home dads to have the same acceptance as stay-at-home moms. Can anti-feminists say the same? .

please help and donate if you can! if you are in the affected areas by the wildfire, i pray for your safety. i hope you, family, and friends, are okay, evacuated, and if you did not have to evacuate, i still hope everyone you may know is safe. i also thank the firefighters and the ordinary people who are going around helping people, rescuing people, sheltering animal and people, offering food, clothes, and more. wildfires an all natural disasters, are devastating. but it’s a nice change to see people helping other people; no matter race, status or anything. spread some love today, drink your water, and get a good night of sleep. :). you are loved, it’ll be alright.
Today, I’d like to share with you another form of creation to explore - crystals and gems. 💎 This is a new form of artistic inspiration and expression for me, having only studied it for about a year now, but I want to share it with you because 1) we can learn together, and 2) there are many ways in which these lovely stones provide guidance and influence for the healing and #recovery process. For now, I’ll start off with introducing the stones shown here. I selected this particular combination to inspire deep emotional/physical healing and tuning in with the #feminine energies of the earth for harmony and #balance . From left to right, they are: #chrysocolla - resonates with the ancient feminine energies and speaking your honest heart’s desires #rainbowmoonstone - another goddess stone that elucidates the truths of the deep inner self and soul #bloodstone - to inspire courage and self-acceptance on the path to detoxification and healing. They are seated in a quartz geode for amplification and unity. The three figures in the background symbolize the primary pillars of healing: body, mind and spirit. Together, this collection symbolizes the path to healing and #empowerment for both men and women. Currently, I’m learning to connect with the energies of these and learn how those ideals feel within myself. I do this so that I can learn to experience life through new lenses. Meditation is the key to this process. Remember, all matter resonates with energy, as everything consists of atoms all held together simply through energetic force. By learning to re-sensitize to the subtle, specific energies in these stones, we can retrain our own energy output to mirror them. ✨What energies do you sense from this array?✨ ————————// To learn more through daily creative inspiration and art, follow me @cassie.on.canvas 💗 —————————// #healingcrystals#crystalhealing#dailyinspiration#createeveryday#healing
