This is a woman telling the truth.

This is a woman telling the truth.:

A wealthy, educated, powerful woman who still was not believed.

An African-American woman (Anita Hill) sitting at a table in front of a microphone. She is testifying at a Congressional hearing, and you can see the mobs of press behind her.

chimoltrufia:

A white man in a position of power raped an undocumented immigrant woman of color. She, also, may have been a prostitute.

But this man is not a millionaire, or an important political, global figure. This man was found guilty on 7 counts, including rape and kidnapping, by a jury of his peers in a…

Horrific.

“If you remain focused on a subset of voices in order to maintain your rhetorical position, you’re making yourself as irrelevant as you keep saying they are.”

“Feminism is the struggle to end sexist oppression. Its aim is not to benefit solely any specific group of women, any particular race or class of women. It does not privilege women over men. It has the power to transform in a meaningful way all our lives. Most importantly, feminism is neither a lifestyle nor a ready-made identity or role one can step into.”

Lyrics: 

I could’ve settled down in Paris;

but the man he came for me, 

took me by the hand and said it was time to leave. 

Margaret Atwood: she could not stop him;

Virginia Woolf: she could not stop him.

The truth is I wanted to go:

he’s all I know, he’s all I know,

he’s all I know, he’s all I know.

I got back home from Paris, and he told me what I done was wrong.

And though his speech was rather long,

I listened like an obedient child. 

The light was coming in through the windows.  

It was a most familiar type of night.

How I loved every streetlight, and I wanted him to kiss me. 

Margaret Atwood: she could not stop me;

Virginia Woolf: she could not stop me.

The truth is I wanted to go:

he’s all I know, he’s all I know,

he’s all I know, he’s all I know.

Sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life.

He told me that he couldn’t live without me,

and I told him the same thing too.

And though we knew it wasn’t true,

we both knew it wasn’t a lie.

The light was coming in through the window.

It was a most familiar type of night.

How I loved every streetlight, and I wanted him to kiss me.

Margaret Atwood: she could not stop me;

Virginia Woolf: she could not stop me.

The truth is I wanted to go: 

it is all I know, it is all I know,

it is all I know, it is all I know. 

Sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life. 

Sweet, sweet, sweet forever:

I’ll comfort myself in my next life.

superseventies:

Queen rocking it on stage.

For Mr. George Ruthenberg.

(PS I’ve always wanted pants like that, with a flare at the ankle, not the calf. Balenciaga did them once.)
