As of today, Saudi Arabia’s ban on women driving has been officially lifted.
Although a small step forward, I hope it propels Saudi women closer to equality.
Congratulations girls, it’s time for you to drive us into a whole new world. 💪🏽🧕🏽🚘
This is not supposed to be beautiful. I think the picture speaks for itself. All I want to say is: the future is female. And unfortunately there are still too many oppressions in the world. The picture was painted with oil paints. #feminism
The next time you see an impossibly beautiful woman, the kind you could stare at for hours getting lost in comparison and self doubt, I want you to do something differently. Before you wish that you had her legs, I want you to think about where she’s been. Before you covet her waves of flowing hair, I want you to wonder whether she’s drowning under it. Before you believe that you’d be better off in her body instead of yours, I want you to consider that she might be trapped in that body by the same insecurities that make you look at her the way you usually would.
One of the most devastating lessons we learn as females is that we’re all in competition. And since we’re taught that there’s only one kind of beautiful, we better start fighting for it. Maybe it’s the look up and down when you pass in the street. Maybe it’s the ‘you’re so pretty, I hate you!’ joke that has a bit too much truth to it. Maybe it’s not being able to leave your house, open a magazine, turn on the TV or scroll through Instagram without measuring yourself against the women you see. Whatever it is, we’ve somehow been convinced that there just isn’t room for all of us.
What we forget is that we’re all facing body image demons. We’re all being sold the same unrealistic images of perfection. We’re all conditioned into believing that our value is in our bodies and that we’ll never be good enough. And no matter how ‘perfect’ we may appear to others, when we’re alone with our mirrors and our distorted perceptions we can still see ourselves as hideously imperfect, and wonder how anyone sees anything else. So instead of tearing each other apart trying to reach the top, we need to fight together against the messages that hurt us all. Start with changing how we see each other. Let’s try compassion, instead of competition 💜💗💛🌈☀️

Dudes want to be their relationships to be polygamous but in actuality they only mean they want multiple wives or girlfriends, not whoever they with to have multiple husbands or boyfriends. People will find the first tweet to be okay but the second tweet, which is obviously sarcasm but people can't detect that, to be wrong. If you into that, you into that, no shame in ya game, but don't be having double standards. || Follow @filledwithmelanin for more 😊

Over 90% of the cotton grown in the United States is grown from genetically modified seeds made specifically to withstand the application (typically what is many multiple applications) of glyphosate. And while cotton products are routinely used on places like cuts, or to clean your ears or even wipe your baby’s bottom, when it comes to feminine “protection” products, they aren’t just used for a brief moment in time. TAMPONS, for example, are placed in a highly sensitive mucous membrane area near a woman’s cervix and her reproductive organs for hours at a time, over a period of multiple days, each and every month, throughout all the years a woman is fertile.
