Life is happening to all of us, and sometimes it can be tough and painful to see through days. But we must push through these difficult times and fight for our lives, our peace, and our happiness. If we hang tight, we’ll see glory on the other side ✨
My beautiful friend @alana_grainger and l have developed a ‘tea and life chats’ ritual, which l always love and really appreciate her for. Today she dialled things up a notch and brought henna...and now I’m covered beautiful patterns, feeling fancy 😘Thanks so much love! ♥️
For today’s #motivationmonday we are looking at Marion Gilchrist, and Madge Easton Anderson. The first photo is of Marion, and the second is of our bios of these ladies. Both of these women were absolute trail blazers in their respective fields. Marion and Madge were also key members to the #universityofglasgow Settlement. To learn a bit more about they changed the game for ladies respectively in medicine and law, and how they worked with the Settlement in their fields, come take a look at our exhibit.

@ayushmitaks writes on "6 Things Single Women Still Can’t Do And It’s 2018"
As women, we have continuously been told that we need to ‘fit in’ or ‘blend into’ the spectrum of the societal expectations and norms. The life of a woman is measured by the number of expectations she has stood up to. Regardless of the success she might have tasted in her professional work, she is subject to being judged and labelled by some of the simple choices that she makes. Remaining unmarried is one such choice. However, in our country, there is a lot that a single woman has to go through, by the simple virtue of being unmarried.
What is even astonishing is the fact that most of these are not even laws. They are just rules passed by satellite organisations of the government without proper review or debate, or the moral police who live around us. This just adds to the systematic oppression and biases against single women. The everyday discrimination faced by single women stands testimony to the notion that women ‘belong’ to, first their fathers and then their husbands. In 2018, when all of us are talking so vehemently against the oppression of women, the 71 million population of single women should not be ignored.

“For years and years and years one didn’t even mention feminism. No one wanted to discuss it.
I was told by an English gallerist in the 1980s that my commitment to feminism had ruined my career. Postcards, trivia, the things that really interest me are dangerous for a woman, because they reek of domesticity and craft.” (Susan Hiller)
From Rochdale’s fine art collection Susan Hiller’s works will be shown alongside a selection of works from the @fondazionesandretto private collection. Join us this Thursday 6-8pm for the opening at @touchstones_rochdale. The exhibition continues until 29 September.

92년부터 98년까지 6년간의 '관부재판'을 담은 실화 영화 <허스토리 ; HERstory>
상영하는곳이 거의 없어서 오늘에서야 보고왔는데 영화를 보며 같은 여성으로서 정말 많이 분노하고, 울고, 끝날 무렵에는 내 자신이 너무 너무 부끄러워졌다.
위안부 역사는 단순히 우리의 아픈 역사가 아니라, 다함께 기억하고 행동하여 반드시 옳은 사과를 받아내야 하는 역사인 것 같다.
혹시라도 아직 안보신 분이 있다면 꼭 보셨으면 좋겠습니다! 그리고 가능한한 오래, 더 많은 곳에서 상영해주었으면 좋겠습니다.
Women students and residents of Jamia Girls Hostel are protesting against curfews that are undeniably sexist. While women have to do a lot to get a pass for staying out one night, from writing an application to getting their parents to call and confirm, men simply do not have any curfew actively in place.

Profession: Creative Entrepreneur & Philanthropist
BGK Experience: “Believe In What You Dream!” As a little girl, I was taught the importance of following my dreams through the use of my imagination. Today, as a women, I actively utilize imagination full-time within my work as a creative entrepreneur, traveler and philanthropist. Traveling to Morocco to connect with our beautiful sisterhood of Black Girl Khronicles was a warm reminder to never stop believing. Reflecting on my humble beginnings in Vallejo, California to standing side by side with my sisters. Traveling from USA & Spain & London and all around the globe. On to illustrating the power of creativity as we sprinkled a little magic @projectsoarmorocco during the creative workshop by @yarnmovement “Believe In What You Dream”. As these Moroccan girls are planning for their futures they get exposed to new things, while understanding they are capable of more than they think. Sometimes all it takes is a creative spark to remind you just how dope you are. Our sisterhood is an authentic example of what it looks like to follow dreams from various walks. These are our stories! EMBRACE YOUR DOPENESS!
