I stopped being an armchair feminist this morning and showed up for women.
I’ve never had an abortion but I know some of you reading this have and some of you will in the future. It’s time to change a Queensland law that is 119 years old.
Abortion is not a crime.
If you’re a Queenslander who agrees then email your local MP and let them know how you feel.
Can’t believe I’m moving back to NY in a few weeks! I’m so excited that I get to start fresh and be with people who care about me and want to see me succeed. I can’t live in stl anymore 🙃i hate everything about here lol #timesup#newlifewhodis
We are ready for it! The sold out #refusetoabuse5k is set up for tomorrow morning. We are so thankful to our volunteers and lead team! It’s a lot fun to throw a 1,700 person 5k party with the incredible Seattle @mariners. Might have to catch a relaxing ⚾️game tonight before our big day!
I cannot tell you how amazing this was to read...
Sick of influencers buying their audiences? 👎🤑
Sick of seeing someone magically grow 9 million followers overnight? 🤔
Sick of BS posts with no real skin in the game? 👊
Sick of influencers "helping others" but not at all? 😱
Thank YOU truly my friends, from the bottom of my heart, for following me authentically!!
And I love how companies are doing the right thing to clean this space up!!!
Thanks @unileverusa (@dove ) for taking a stance!
And side note--I'm proud of this movement WE are creating called #liftourhope . It has not been bought. It won't ever be bought. It's the real deal. Just a group of people, trying to make change happen, by helping build one girl's voice -- into something much bigger than herself -- so we can literally help change the world.
Support matters. 🙌❤️💥✨
Thank you friends for your love!! It means the WORLD to me - and could quite possibly one day, literally HELP the WORLD 🌎💖

💪🏾💪🏽💪🏼 I am honoured to have hosted a panel of extraordinary activists at the ‘From Violence to a Place of Power’ event, which explored how philanthropy can increase its support for the movement to end violence against girls and women. 💸💕🤲🏼
Thank you to the panel: Nasra (@_IntegrateUK), Marai (Imkaan) and Devi (@FridaFund), and all the other incredible speakers who inspired us with their honesty and passion. Supporting women's and girls organisations is the single greatest hope we have for worldwide transformative change - and my philanthropic choices are grounded in that belief.
Thank you to NoVo Foundation, Oak Foundation, Unbound Philanthropy and Ariadne for organising this event. #timesup#metoo#endVAWG

Here is a PRIME example of objectification in modern day society!
This is the VERY FIRST STEP in excusing violence against women, so feel free to call out this type of behavior, especially around CHILDREN!
Start shining your light on this form of abuse! 🔥
This is NOT harmless behavior.
This is ABUSE!
It doesn't matter how "attracted" someone feels, or how much of a person's perfectly NORMAL HUMAN BODY ANYONE can see... Sexual assault and ABUSE are NEVER okay! "However we dress, wherever we go... YES means YES, and ANYTHING ELSE means NO!" ✋🏼 Watch for the #RedFlags that you might be dealing with a manipulative or abusive person, and share this information to help me change the world! 💪🏼😉🌎💖 #EndRapeCulture#SexualAbuseAwareness#BeTheChange#BeTheLight 🔥

“Predators thrive in silence”
“Speaking up and speaking out is not easy. Telling our stories of abuse over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy. We’re sacrificing privacy and being judged and scrutinized, and it is painful, but it is time”
141 women on stage at the ESPYS, representing the hundreds of victims of Larry Nassar, receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award
Tide Risers was created to counteract what we have found to be a tendency for women to compete rather than collaborate. We need to consciously and conspicuously counteract this destructive habit every chance we get. Sometimes that means taking a chance on someone. Tag the person who took a chance on you!

home..after being followed down the street by a man yelling vulgar shit about my body, what he wanted to do to it and the things he wanted to stick inside of it. got to my car and locked the doors just seconds before he tried to force his way in. he had me blocked in and was screaming and hitting my car demanding i open the door. after a couple mins of his fucking tantrum i was ready to run his ass over and he finally backed off enough that i could pull away. broad daylight, on a busy street in dtla. FUCK. TOXIC. MASCULINITY. one more time for y’all in the back. FUCK. TOXIC. MASCULINITY. i got zero tolerance for that shit so don’t step to me like that or I will unleash a rage on you that will reduce you down to the street scum you are. get grown and get the fuck out. women created you and we will destroy you. witches, sluts, and feminists unite. hail kālī ma!
This right here👇👇👇

We live under the false pretense that cis women need cis men. There could be nothing farther from the truth as this thread illustrates. Men who want to address this power imbalance, who need to address it, should begin with the idea that women & femmes don’t exist to provide them with our time, energy, nurturing or our bodies. You are not entitled to us.
Don't ever be ashamed of struggling with mental illnesses. We live in a society that's constantly shaming us for having a mental health disorder and we can't keep falling for it.
I've spent years hiding my disorder with an "all is perfect mask" just because I'm embarrassed to struggle with food, it took me years to open up and ask for help because I didn't even believe "I was sick enough", I didn't think I deserved help, I didn't think I needed help.
Today I'm sometimes embarrassed, but most of the time I'm proud of myself for fighting my ed every single day, even when I really want to give up, it really is a badass thing to do fighting your own mind.
I'm proud of you all. Please don't be embarrassed of your struggle, it is part of your story and you are stronger and wiser because of it. You didn't choose this.
