Here’s Some Feminist Affirmations To Brighten Your Friday

If I’m being totally honest, some days I wake up and I don’t feel that great about myself. Some mornings, I can’t even muster up the energy to get up or go about my daily routine. On days like these–and I’ll admit, today was one of those days for me–we all need to be reminded of our worth, potential, and beauty. That’s why I follow @frizzkidart on Instagram.

Musings on privacy and self-care

Today marks my first week back to Feministing after a month (mostly) off to take care of a health problem. It was a weird time, in large part because breaks aren’t really my thing. I like work.
