How much do we appreciate women family? Filling in the blank pages of Black History.... Reposted from @vodou_film Do you know who Marie-Jean is? How about Joan of Arc? If you know about the latter and not the former, then it should inform you about why Decolonisation has become such a crucial topic after 'Black Lives Matter' since 2020! What makes one historical figure more important than the other such that they get more documentation and focus?! The essential role of women in the Haitian Revolution deserves as much study as does the principles that inspired it and Marie-Jean is one such figure, if not only for the miraculous feat she achieved with Dessalines at Crete-a-Pierōt! The only thing lost is ignorance of our true Power when we continue to not make efforts to learn our history and culture in the depth required to transform ourselves! V is for Victory - Ayibobo!

ARGENTINA JUST MADE HISTORY.
The first protest for legal abortion in democracy in Argentina was on March 7, 1984. 36 years later, December 30, 2020 at 04:13 am, abortion is now officially legal, safe and free for all women. Women have fought for so long to obtain rights of this kind. This is a HUGE step for us, what an amazing day. EL ABORTO ES LEGAL 💚

Goddess’ guide to dating yourself
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but ladies we need to start dating ourselves.
Whether you are in a relationship or not, you need to do this.
Why?
Because your best relationship in your life should be with yourself. In fact, your longest relationship is with yourself. Show your self some love! Fall in love with yourself. Dating yourself can help you become more confident and secure with yourself. It can help us know our worth.
1. Find something you are passionate about and hone in on it! This is your chance to do and try new things until you find something you like and even when you find something you like, keep trying things. Go back and do things you used to do and see if you still like it. Try painting, photography, yoga, reading, guitar, knitting... the list is endless.
2. Become more independent!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but never did because you were waiting for someone else to do it with you? This is your time to do it by yourself. Life is short, you don’t have time to wait for someone else to do something with you. Go take that class by yourself, go see the world by yourself, go shopping by yourself, take yourself to that new restaurant.
3. Get to know yourself more!
In more ways than one, you should get to know yourself. My favorite way to do this is to answer those question prompts from pinterest. They can help you find your passions, your limits, your dreams, your desires. Find your limits and boundaries. Things that you will and won’t put up with anymore and stick to them. Also, Masturbation, ladies. Know how to make yourself feel good. Your pleasure shouldn’t be solely dependent on someone else.
4. Get in tuned with your body and mind!
Try meditating, journaling, yoga, vision boarding. Learn what your body likes and dislikes. Do your makeup a new way. And then do it again. Get a massage or facial. Or DIY it. Wear that killer outfit you’ve been saving. Do a photoshoot. Find your angles. Do breath work. Affirmations. Therapy can do wonders for your life.
Date ideas?
1. Take yourself on a picnic. Pack a cute basket of your favorite snacks and foods. Grab a bottle of wine and a blanket and sit with yourself in the park. Maybe read that book you’ve been meaning to.
2. Watch a movie. Years ago, I used to buy matinee tickets, buy popcorn and watch movies at the theater by myself and it was wonderful. You can do the same at home.
3. Go to a restaurant. I know the allure of take out will be hard to resist but do it! Dress up in your finest outfit. Make your makeup and hair killer. Take yourself to the cute cafe or restaurant you’ve been dying to try. Order something new. Savor your food.
4. Take yourself to the store. If you’re a bookworm like me, I’d suggest Barnes and noble or another book store. If you’re not a book person, try a clothing store or a tea shop or other specialty shop. Go to a store you’ve never been to.  Take your time, look around. Take pictures of everything. Imagine yourself buying something. Actually buy it, if you can. Take note of all the things you want in that store.
5. Organize. Hear me out here. Make a date out of de-cluttering and organizing. Turn on your favorite playlist or tv show or podcast. Start clearing out things you don’t need and make room for new things. Sing at the top of your lungs. Dance like no one’s watching. Make a fashion show out of it. Make your house cozy and smell good. Let it become a place you enjoy being in.
Get out there and do the things you love to do! Fall in love with life!

International women’s day in Mexico
I usually don’t make posts about this, but rather reblog them. This year is different because this year I can only confirm to myself that things for us Mexican women are getting worse and worse.
Feminism to me this year has a different meaning because today I understand Latin American feminist is different. In most western countries the fight is more about gender inequality in terms of wage gap, sexism, and misogyny. In Latin America we are getting killed. In Mexico we are getting killed and r*ped and authorities are doing nothing. Authorities are corrupt. Politicians don’t care. Politicians commit sexual violence crimes. The president hasn’t done anything to solve the problem. And we are tired.
Last year, women’s day looked like this:

Transcript:
Image 1: Feminicide State written in the doors of the presidents office.
Image 3: Don’t kill us
Image 4: #not one less. (Chant in reference to the concerning increase in feminicides over the last five years)
Image 5: AMLO (Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexico’s president) indifferent.
Image 6: don’t kill us.
Mexican women feel collective pain and fright for the current situation. We gather up as sisters in this movement. It is raw, it is extremist, it is anarchic, but it’s necessary. We are done. Here are some links about the situation:
To get started What is femicide?
While femicides represented about 10 percent of all murders in 2019, the rate has increased exponentially, growing 145 percent since 2015.
Ingrid’s case
Femicide Is Rising in Mexico as Government Denies Risks of Gender-Based Violence
Femicides in Mexico: Fighting for the right to life
My heart is broken.
I’m angry.
I’m tired.
I’m scared.
Because I love my country but hate it’s government.
Because I love my sisters.
Because we don’t deserve it.
How does it look women’s day in 2021
Tumblr media
In an attempt to protect Palacio Nacional from getting sprayed and painted during the protests, the building was surrounded. What happens when your government supports more the protection towards a building than its women? Thousands of names of the women killed from 2019-2021 are written all over the place along with flowers and pink crosses.
And this is our song: sin miedo (song without fear)
https://youtu.be/VLLyzqkH6cs
Lyrics (translation is not mine, credits to the owner)
Let the state, the skies, the streets tremble
Let the judges and the judiciary tremble
Today, women’s calm is taken away
They sowed his fear
Wings grew on us
Every minute of every week
They steal friends and killed sisters from us
They destroy their bodies
They disappear them
Please don’t forget their names
Mr. president
For all those that are marching in Reforma
For all those that are fighting in Sonora
For the commanders fighting for Chiapas
For all the mothers looking in Tijuana
We sing without fear, we ask for justice
We scream for every missing
Let them hear it loud, we want us alive
Let the femicide fall hard
I set everything on fire, I break everything if one day a stranger closes your eyes
Nothing shuts me up anymore
Nothing else stops me
If one is touched by them, we all respond
I’m Claudia
I’m Ester
I’m Teresa
I’m Ingrid
I’m Fabiola
And I’m Valeria
I’m the girl that you succumbed by force
I’m the mother that now cries for their deaths
And I’m the one who will make you pay your debts
Justice!
For all those that are marching in Reforma
For all those that are fighting in Sonora
For the commanders fighting for Chiapas
For all the mothers looking in Tijuana
We sing without fear, we ask for justice
We scream for every missing
Let them hear it loud, we want us alive
Let the femicide fall hard
(Extracts from the national anthem)
And let the earth tremble
In it’s center
To the loud roar
Of love (changed to “the loud roar of war”)
And let the earth tremble in it’s center to the loud roar of love

I’m not the type of woman you find twice. The next time you come around I won’t even be the same person you knew.

I think of Sylvia Plath sometimes. Of Leo Tolstoy's wife. Of Mozart's sister. I think of the reasons Jane Austen never married. The women of the French Revolution. The women of the Indian Independence Movement who were shunned to housework by "Mahatma" Gandhi. I think I live for them, those women, live for all the things they wanted to do.

What’s happening with our mexican feminists in the last few days?
Tumblr media
“We neither forgive or forget”
As you may (or not) know, Mexico is one of the many Latin American countries with the worst cases of femicides, gender violence, rapes, and sexual harassment. For many years we’ve been shouting out in the streets, we’ve blocked the city with our manifestation and even stopped for a whole day and show how would be a day without us. 
But that seems not enough for our government
Our government doesn’t hear us, our government doesn’t care about us. We still walk with fear in an empty street (even if it’s noon), we still have nightmares with the struggle of couldn’t make it one day: survive. We don’t live in Mexico, we survive.
Tumblr media
“Nobody ask what my rapist was wearing”
In Mexico, 11 women are murdered everyday and nobody does anything in the name of justice
What’s happening with our mexican feminists in the last few days?
Our event takes place in Mexico City, September 02: Relatives of missing people ‘took’  a room in one of the most important buildings when it comes to human rights: the CNDH (National Commission for Human Rights). Marcela Alemán, whose daughter was raped 3 years ago, explain that this organization (and the Justice System of San Luis Potosí, Mexico) haven’t do anything for them; despite having enough evidence to catch the rapists:
Tumblr media
“I’m fucking tired, they revictimize me, humiliate me [...] I can’t take it anymore, my soul hurts”
September, 04: In a pacific way, women from “Ni Una Menos México” have taken the entirely building, so the authorities can solve the demands from this and many families who are in the same position. They had a talk with the president of the CNDH, and some mothers decided to go, but our feminists remains in the building asking and fighting for every women in Mexico that have suffered.
Tumblr media
“Justice”
Our feminists have found a lot of food inside, food that people who works there doesn’t need, so they’re gonna donate them for those in need. They have painted and destroy everything as an act of resistance and rebellion. We’re not looking for money, nobody here belongs to the government: We just want justice for those who are not with us anymore, we want to feel safe in the country that has denied us protection.
Tumblr media
“Girls must not be raped”
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
“CNDH USELESS, How many more?”
Many of you may think that “this is not the way to get attention”, but in Mexico, were nobody listens to you just because you’re a woman, you have to find ways to be noticed. We don’t respect a country who doesn’t respect us, we don’t care for silly paintings, we care for our women today and always.
We, the feminists, have this song that says “We are bad, we can be worst” and we proudly sing it while we look for justice, for peace, for a better place for everyone.

Dear women,
It's okay to love your body. Its not vanity
Its okay to love your breasts, body hair, vulva, your period, literally anything about you and your natural self
You're not disgusting when you don't shave
You're not unsightly when you don't wear make up
You're not lazy when you dress for comfort
You're not dirty when you're on your period
Society trying to tear you down at every corner doesn't make them right
Its even okay if you can't love yourself right now and you practice body neutrality

Women are too emotional to hold leadership positions but men on female hormones are so brave and stunning, they should definitely become leaders. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
