When women are expected to care for others, physically and emotionally, it often comes with the message that taking time and resources to care for ourselves is selfish or detrimental to our communities. Prioritizing our mental and physical health goes against our conditioning and society's expectations, but we cannot be good members of our communities until we are first good to ourselves.

Faites quelque chose tant qu’il est encore temps. Ne passer pas outre ce traumatisme. N’attendais pas sa mort, ne vous dites pas c’est bon c’est fini, c’était il y’a longtemps !
Ne vous dites pas c’est bon je l’ai dit je passe à autre chose maintenant !
Agissez, protégez vous, protégez les suivantes, protégez vos sœurs, filles, fils frères, cousines, voisines, copines .. Et ce n’est pas parce que l’on est beaucoup à s’être faites abuser ou harceler que cela est normal ! C’est totalement anormal justement ! 📷La tristement magnifique illustration de @lucymacaroni
#METOO : Just when I moved from Spain to Hollywood in 2006, I met a famous actor and I was all excited. My English was poor and I was clueless and insecure. He was handsome and I was in need for some affection. We had lunch and then he took me to his house. We started kissing and then I told him I had to go, that I wasn't ready for anything else. That was the last thing I remember before I woke up with my body full of bruises and pain in my vagina. I felt confused and guilty. I tried to forget about it but every time I was seeing him on Internet the memory kept coming back. I forgave him and myself in order to move on and be at peace. (Movie still from my First Movie Adventure Day's Dream 2008, pretty much resumes how I felt when I woke up the next day after that experience) #iwasraped#violence#sexualassault#howifeel#womensrights#jillove
We are so proud of each and every one of our university scholarship students and the incredible odds they have overcome to get to where they are today. But it doesn't stop here. We mentor them at every step, even holding annual mentorship conference, where the girls learn everything they need to become successful in the career they’ve chosen.
Last week a friend was kind enough to fill out my paperwork at the doctor and one of the questions was "have you ever been sexually assaulted?" I said something like, "Eh, not technically I don't think. You know." To which she yup'd and moved onto the next question, just like that.
It's so fucking normal. I count my blessings to have only countless harassment and questionable assault.
Me too. #yesallwomen
"thank you to all women (and men) that have spoken up about this terrible reality that we have to face.
i am so grateful for your bravery and courage.
it's not pretty or comfortable or fun to talk about but it is real and the magnitude of this issue needs to be seen and heard.
if you are still shocked by the amount of women coming forward with their stories i ask you to sit down and talk to the women in your life. i do not know a single woman that has not experienced some sort of sexual assault or harassment.
i am in awe of all the amazing women in my life and hope that one by one every victim has the courage to stand up and say #MeToo ." - repost from @vanessamagos
every woman has unfortunately experienced some sort of sexual harassment. it's unfortunate that since hollywood opens up about experiences like this, the world stands up. meanwhile, i am thinking about women and children in africa, india and so on that doesn't have a voice like this.
let's not forget about them. their our sisters too.
as a man, imagine if this would happen to your mother, your sister, your niece, .. let's not forget. let's stand together.
I’ve felt many emotions as this movement has taken over social media. Comforted, angered, moved, sad. As i read more stories, I’m reminded of incidents that I unconsciously pushed to the side, not including the ones I vividly remember.
I now remember more situations when the men were drunk and their behaviour excused because of that....totally dismissing the effect on us. But the point is, It doesn’t matter how many times you were the victim of abuse, harassment or rape, it matters that you were even ONCE! That’s not ok.
I hope woman begin to talk about it shamelessly and openly and we can say #neveragain . 💕🌟
Happy Seneca Falls jump! In between farmlands and the birthplace of women's rights in the U.S.A. We still have so far to go on our journey. But it's great stopping by on my own journey to give ode to the women before us who paved the way for the rights we have today. I hope my fellow sisters and brothers can always be on the right side of human rights. #senecafalls#thisyonitravels#womensrights
This is an old video, but the man @donutoperator absolutely destroys a martyr of the black lives movement. BLM celebrates black people on social media solely for their skin color when they're involved with the police, and almost every time they parade around a name when the events they shout didn't even happen. Props to you sir, keep doing what you're doing - op
BEAT IT, CREEP! Creative powerhouse @jodidudek is standing up in my series, #justsayno ! Will you?
My project Just Say NO! is a photographic exploration of women setting boundaries and asserting themselves through fashion. In light of #metoo , which has inspired women to come forward with their sexual harassment and assault stories, I realized the time to fully dive into this project is NOW
If you are a female living in the United States who is sick of having your boundaries violated and standards dictated to you by others, e-mail me to inquire about shooting! Seeking expressive women of all ages, shapes, nationalities, and sizes who aren't afraid to emote in front of a camera and speak about their experiences. You don’t have to be a professional model or entertainer to participate!
www.timeforaction.org.uk Just a week from today a group of our campaigners will be heading to the UK House of Commons to hold a Formal Lobby Of Parliament! We've already had a great response from our network, people attending include the families involved, mothers, daughters and MPs but we need you to help us with the last push💥 Our voice is our most powerful tool so please use yours to advocate for the cause. There are plenty of ways to support us on this day - take to social media, using our hashtag, ask your MP if they're familiar with the cause (and if not familiarise them!), look out for our reports on how the lobby day went, and if you feel so inclined to really get involved, join us! There are more detailed posts to come however if you're curious to know more, direct message us, we don't bite💓 #womensrights#hpvvaccine#hpvvaccine#asaferhpvvaccine#healthcare#womeninpolitics#equality#ukparliament#hpvlobbyday
The boys who touched my breasts without permission in the school corridors, the ones who broke into the girls' locker rooms numerous times and made us afraid to change after gym class.
The guy who tried to get physical with me on my way to town and wouldn't let go of my fucking hand. The guy who put his arm around me and started pawing me when I was just out for a goodamn walk. The guys who cruised past me so slow and so close trying to get me inside their car. The guys who circled me with their bikes, trying to pick me up, giving more rapey vibes the closer we got to an unpopulated area, who made me change my planned route then and every day after that, so I would't risk becoming just another statistic. The guy who cornered me against a bridge railing and took ten tries and several approaching people to accept a no. The guys who've pawed at me in close public quarters. The boss who liked to give me impromptu massages at work. The guy who liked to hide in the backyard and stare through my windows. The guy who liked to call me and breathe heavily like in a clichė fucking thriller. And all the many boys, guys, men, online and offline, acting like entitled creeps. 💔💔💔
It's hard to describe to someone who doesn't know. Who doesn't understand. How common it is. How dangerous they can become, those things that start with "boys will be boys" and "it just means he likes you" and "it was just a bit of fun, it didn't mean anything". How damaging it is, how damning. We get so used to being pawed at, being harassed, learning that our bodies, our hearts and minds, our souls, do not belong to us alone, sometimes we don't even understand ourselves whether we have been violated or not. Whether we have the right to feel wronged. 😔💔 But we do have the right. And we should't have to change how we dress, or walk, or where we choose to go, just to avoid being harassed. We are better than that. Humanity, should be better than that. 🌹

I believe I'm almost ready to start writing music down again, not that i'll ever stop freestylin alllll over the place too though. #notjustwhite#equality ✌
#metoo So much, me too..
I have been a bartender for 13 years, starting as a 19 year old girl. I have experienced all kinds of sexual harassment from all kinds of men AND women. Because I am friendly, does NOT mean I am flirting. .
If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote "Me, too." as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem. #metoo
Now I'm very private, but I feel that I want to stand up for myself and others who have been abused.
Im sharing with hopes that people will realize how big this problem is and that something needs to change...
Klarar knappt av att läsa tidningarna längre utan att gråta eller bli förbannad. Ekonomiska brott anses idag värre än sexuella brott i Sveriges rättssystem, de har högre prioritet och straff. Hur kan pengar "luft" vara mer värt än en människas liv?
Vi som drabbas får våra liv förstörda, vi kommer aldrig att glömma. Många av oss får svåra psykiska problem, behöver vård och blir sjukskrivna, vilket borde kosta samhället mer i slutändan.
Det sägs att vi lever i en demokrati där alla är jämställda, aa eller hur? Varför gör då vår makt ingenting, varför blundar man då för dessa problem? Nästan ingen sexförbrytare blir dömd idag och de som väl blir dömda får någon månads straff max, vad sänder då samhället för signaler till förbrytare och offer tror ni?😡
FEMINISM : Back by popular demand? We're not sure how popular it is but it's definitely is necessary ✊🏼
Hi 👋🏼 Al here, reminding you that our FEMETAL tee is not just for girls. If we're ever going to achieve equality the sole responsibility shouldn't be on women. The #METOO posts that are shouting loud and proud all over social media are a perfect reminder of how prevalent sexual abuse and harassment is. However, it's time for men to take the responsibility and I'm not just talking about the vile perpetrators here. Men need to speak up and I'll start by saying "I might have ignored it in the past but I won't ignore it again". We must all condemn any form of abuse or harassment, no matter how trivial it may seem at the time. It's our only chance ✌🏼
Woman, man, girl or boy show your support with our FEMETAL tee now. Link in bio.
We have been very impressed with @heathermillenaar hard work and dedication! I stopped by last night to catch her in action as she projects images to get the scale and shape of the elements for her mural!
