Hello? Girls We Run the World

March 7, a day women are celebrated for being totally awesome. It’s an important day, but, why should we be celebrated just one day out of 365? Being a woman at times isn’t the easiest when the media tries to define and categorize you into something that’s generally impossible, often told that the way we look or dress isn’t feminine at all.

It’s great to live in a society where even celebrities feel the need to speak out about how uncomfortable they feel wearing makeup to cover up their imperfections. No intentional disrespect to those who choose to wear it; as a woman who doesn’t, it’s refreshing to see artists like Alicia Keys take a stand against society and just be the way she’s most comfortable.

Emma Watson is a proud feminist who actively represents women all over the world. Being a feminist is often frowned upon by many I’ve met. Everyone should love and appreciate our bodies in any way and remain feminists without judgement. We live in a time where we shouldn’t have to demand equality. We can be whoever we want to be.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, whether it’s to a world renowned artist, a superstar athlete, CEO of a company, journalist, or even the President of the United States. Anything is possible, empower your fellow man, woman, human. You are worth it, you are beautiful, you are intelligent. At the end of the day we are all human beings with beating hearts and all. Love thyself, love others.

“Gracias por darle sentido a nuestras vidas. Recuerden siempre lo valiosas que son y no dejen que ninguna persona les diga lo contrario.”
