14 months later and we finally have an answer. You're lookin at Australia's newest partner visa recipients✨πŸ₯‚

Yesterday was IWD in Australia. I sat quiet and observed the way in which the people around me reacted to this. Many people I know, whom I respect as individuals, who grew up surrounded by privilege and education, took this opportunity to voice their opinions on the redundancy or stupidity of feminism. Every time I hear this it feels like a fresh wound is carved out on my skin. I feel another pang of disappointment; like no matter what I do or how many times I have the same conversation with people, some will always subscribe to misinformation over the truth. In contrast, yesterday I saw strong, bold women praising the cause and coming out in support of feminism. Despite the ignorance that in 2017, seems to be only gaining traction (just look at US politics. We are fortunate in Australia. Consider donating to @aclu_nationwide or @plannedparenthood), we are slowly making progress. We are using our voices to support the trans community in light of the devastating Gavin Grimm result, we are standing with our LGBTIQ+ brothers and sisters and we are loving and listening to the innumerable POCs still facing racism and micro/macroaggressions all the time. I know sometimes you just can't engage productively with people. There are always going to be people who want to bring us down; who want to live in the past when injustice was rife but their wellbeing was paramount. Sometimes advocating feels futile and deflating - but it is always, always important. Equal rights can no longer be a side note to the existence of women and all minorities. Feminism means freedom, respect and diversity. Feminism refuses to accept that it is okay for strangers to sexually assault my friends and I while we dance in a club. Feminism refuses to accept that we deserve less: less pay, less responsibility, less respect, less autonomy. Feminism refuses to accept that men should be pressured and shamed into how they must feel. Feminism is necessary. Feminism is important. And it cannot exist and progress without us - feminists - fighting for our rights even when it feels useless. I stand with with women, as a proud feminist.
