In a world that craves for women to be the same it is beautiful to know that there are communities of women who are working towards being different. In a world that seeks false imitation and instant popularity as fame it is liberating to know that there are women who certainly do not feel the same.
Women are often taught to sexualize their God given bodies at a young in order to somehow gain attention even if it means gaining attention for all of the wrong reasons. Women are often ridiculed for not being the same. Women are often looked upon as the caretakers, nurturers, or stay at home wife and never anything otherwise. We women come with many stories to tell and paths to follow. We feel the pressure of the world on our shoulders as if the weight of bricks were pressing up against the ribcages of our internal organs.
We women are finding the beauty in speaking up without fear, shame, or guilt. We are fearless yet resilient beings of such power and poise even on the days that we do not feel as though we are. We are unstoppable creations walking the greenlands of this earth. We are a feminine yet poetically divine creation. We are women and that’s all we can ever be not for anyone else but for ourselves alone.
