Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games

I have a female friend who works on a construction site for a new highway. She’s pretty rugged and outdoorsy, never afraid to get dirty, and her job involves a lot of truck-driving and operating heavy machinery. She’s one of the only two women who work there. The amount of stories she’s told me about the people who work there are numerous. One day when she was really sad she told me about how much pressure she feels to be absolutely perfect at her job at all times. Every time she uses the truck or any heavy machinery (a daily part of her job) everyone is scrutinising her every move and she’s terrified that she’s gonna do something wrong, even though she’s worked there for ages.

This is what she said to me: “I can never screw up at work. Not once. If a guy screws up, he screws up. But if I screw up, it’s because I’m a woman.”

Hi new followers!

For those who don’t know, you can blacklist any posts with certain tags in them so that they don’t show up on your dash. Like if you can’t stand a certain show, a certain topic or you don’t want any spoilers, you can blacklist them.

I’ll tag any new content from a new episode of anything with the tag #spoilers. I also always tag the name of the show/movie/book, and I also do trigger warnings (with the hashtag #trigger warning).

Let me know if there’s anything you need me to tag! Always happy to help.

In drama, two characters walk into a room. Each wants something from the other. The question of the scene is: who gets what they want?
