How are we celebrating a Day without Women? Why, we’re emasculating men, not wearing our bras and burning high heels, of course! What ELSE would we do?
Today is International Woman’s Day. Jamie had some great thoughts on how we could all participate in an inclusive way whether it be volunteering, donating to women in need or even picking up the phone and call a female friend you haven’t talked to in awhile.
Here at TN we respect however the ladies in our life choose to celebrate, think of women less fortunate than us, be proud of the strong women we are and grateful for the women who fought for the rights we now have, all the while hoping and wishing and fighting for a day when we are truly equal– here in North America and across the world!
I’m working my ass off because girls run the world. And going out to eat tonight with two friends because we scheduled it weeks in advance because busy ladies are busy, ya ken?
But really. I own a female-owned business with majority female clients. I’m proud of that. I love what I do. I want that to be true for everyone I know and love, male or female. So I’m working my hardest to provide my own little piece of the world that might one day employ more than 2 women and a few female contractors!
And I’m wearing a tight, form-fitting Red dress with heels because that’s how I woman! (and a REAL BRA).
I sent my oldest girls to school in red. We talked about the importance of women in history in every day life. We talked about the great legacy of strong women from Texas, and I shared this quote from Ann Richards:
“I have very strong feelings about how you lead your life. You always look ahead, you never look back.”
It’s not red but rocking my Jordandene “Nevertheless, she persisted tee” and so, encouraging my sweet fierce strong and incredibly imaginative daughter as she sings in a choir competition after overcoming severe stage fright. She has persisted!
Me and all three of my kids are wearing red. I’m spending my day raising them to be better people than the ones who went before them. Yesterday (my daughter) Emmerson told me that she asked her kindergarten teacher if they could add “and sisterhood” to America the Beautiful so I’m feeling pretty good about the future for women!
I’m a woman who stays at home with her two daughters and … GASP …HOME SCHOOLS THEM. I’m the worst feminist. I woke up two hours before they did and worked – for myself and my clients because I also have several clients that I freelance for – almost exclusively female owned and operated businesses. Then I snuggled with my girls, made them breakfast and me coffee, put on a fire red pencil skirt (because I have to meet with a client after lunch), and am currently drilling fractions because my girls have achievement tests next week. Later tonight, I’m going out with my best friend for drinks and dinner, and coming home to watch The Americans because I missed it last night. I will not wear this pencil skirt past 2:30pm.
I don’t own many red things, but I was able to put something together for my morning workout. I’ll be home all day with my little man. We’re going to play with dinosaurs, watch a movie and read some books, including one of my favorites, ‘A is For Activist’.
I’m wearing this shirt!
I’m also working because I want to have a say in what goes on. To be a resource for other women in my company.
I’m at work, rocking my red scrubs and being proud AF to be a woman. ❤️
