Currently reading: Full Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti & came across this page: "When I was in college, a teacher once said that all women live by a '‘rape schedule.’ I was baffled by the term, but as she went on to explain, I got really freaked out. Because I realized that I knew exactly what she was talking about. And you do too. Because of their constant fear of rape (conscious or not), women do things throughout the day to protect themselves. Whether it’s carrying our keys in our hands as we walk home, locking our car doors as soon as we get in, or not walking down certain streets, we take precautions. While taking precautions is certainly not a bad idea, the fact that certain things women do are so ingrained into our daily routines is truly disturbing. It’s essentially like living in a prison – all the time. We can’t assume that we’re safe anywhere: not on the streets, not in our homes. And we’re so used to feeling unsafe that we don’t even see that there’s something seriously fucked up about it."

Did you know a woman’s chance of being raped in the U.S. is 1 in 5? According to the Department of Justice, an estimated 300,000 women are raped every year! & she is ATLEAST 2x more likely to conceive, compared to one engaging in consensual sex.
If you are a victim of rape/sexual assault or have a friend/family member who has been assaulted; please share this information! Please also be sensitive and know ANYONE who identifies anywhere along the gender spectrum can be the victim of sexual assault.

Looking for a good film on Netflix to end your Sunday? Look no further! "The Hunting Ground" is now showing on Netflix. The documentarty is based on the high rates of sexual assault college students face on campus. The documentary invites the audience to listen to the horrific experiences of innocent students; majority being women, whom were taken advantage of by both familiar and unfamiliar faces. The Hunting Ground asserts that the criminal justice system is just as uninterested in pursuing campus sexual assault cases as college administrator despite the evidence at hands... Watch and learn the hardships many college students face daily and what we can do to help!

As a woman + women's studies major, I'm constantly learning and reflecting on my behavior. I created this page to advocate Feminism, strengthen Sisterhood, and relay information & resources that I find important and beneficial to form a supportive and empowhering community. Let's learn from each other. Please feel free to comment, DM, or email me directly @ the email address in my bio💌 Together, we can do it. Let's empowher 1 another.

Often, only men are being targeted for feeding sexism and keeping it alive. However, a large amount of women aren't aware of the Internalized sexism/oppression they carry and gender roles × sexism they encourage. Distancing, belittling, and shaming other women is harmful to ourselves and our sisters. We are supporting lies.. Women, we need to stick together. This includes the entire women identified population. Together, we're stronger 💪

Let's get 1 thing straight: Empowherment doesn't exclude men; we would actually appreciate their attention. Empowherment was created to raise awareness + break the patterns of sexist attitudes, hypermasculinity, gender roles, stereotypes, etc. And in order to make this happen, we need all the support we can get. Not only will eliminating these prejudices be beneficial to women, but also to our fellow brothers. Men aren't born sexist and objectifying women, the exposure to inequality and sexism (on television shows, movies, radio talk shows, books, magazines, etc. - by Men + internalized misogynistic Women), is what's influencing our brothers to mistreat women and suppress pieces of themselves that the media labels 'feminine'. The truth is, We ALL need Feminism. Join us to make this happen! Everybody wins!
