Feminism and Pussy Girl Power

I want a Zero Tolerance policy on All The Patriarchal Bullshit.”
Caitlin Moran

Pussy girl
Don’t be a pussy girl! You can do it!

The feminist in me has been sleeping for a few years. But when I read more and engage in the world she is waking up and wanting everyone to sign the petition! Maybe that’s why I love this page so much (previously posted on instagram). It’s an art journal pages that feels like a feminist poster. I’m trying to empower you all (and myself!) to step out of line. To be bold and seek out adventure. Come join me! :-)

I recently read Caitlin Moran’s How to Be a Woman and recommend all of you to do the same. Read it! She writes about woman’s issues, problems and body-parts (the “unmentionables”) in a straight forward, no bullshit, humorous and very empowering way. I so love that! Here is a quote for you:

We need to reclaim the word ‘feminism’. We need the word ‘feminism’ back real bad. When statistics come in saying that only 29% of American women would describe themselves as feminist – and only 42% of British women – I used to think, What do you think feminism IS, ladies? What part of ‘liberation for women’ is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? ‘Vogue’ by Madonna? Jeans? Did all that good shit GET ON YOUR NERVES? Or were you just DRUNK AT THE TIME OF THE SURVEY?”

Be proud enough to call yourself Strident Feminist!

    Oh wow. My husband bought Caitlin Moran’s book for me… and you are the second blogger in two days who has linked to that book. I’m going to crack it open today! I think the universe is telling me to do it.

    Great post! I never can understand it when women are afraid to call themselves feminists.

    Yes, yes, YESSSS… finally another woman who calls herself ‘feminist’!!! I use that ‘title’ ever since I read Marilyn French and Benoite Grould (aaages ago… when I was young, lol). People didn’t understand me then and they still raise their eyebrows when I call myself that… what the ??? How can you be a woman and NOT be a feminist? Caitlin Moran is amazing… I love her style and how she shakes all the ‘sleepy women’ (well, the ones who hear her toot anyway…)

    This makes me smile. I know just what you’re talking about! I have heard so much about that book. And I enjoyed your Tweet about this so much. But sometimes one has to come over to the actual blog, to the SOURCE! and relish the details.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend, Hanna!

    Vilket konstverk till art journal-sida! Den skulle jag vilja ha som poster på riktigt!
    Jag tycker också att det är konstigt, och framför allt väldigt tråkigt, att så många kvinnor inte vill kalla sig feminister. Egentligen är det ju inte bara en fråga för kvinnor utan för alla människor, jag är övertygad om att även män skulle ha mycket att vinna på ett mer jämställt samhälle. För mig är ordet feminist i alla fall positivt laddat och inget jag tvekar att kalla mig eller stå för.

    the feminist in me never sleeps :)

    Jag har en syster som säger att hon inte är feminist, och vi har diskuterat saken flera gånger. Jag förstår inte hur man kan vara kvinna utan att samtidigt vara feminist. Som du säger, vad är problemet? Rösträtt, lika lön, rätt till abort, rätt att använda p-piller, självbestämmanderätt?

    • iHanna says:

      Malin, ja så sant. Men även icke-feminister har ju rätt att ha sin åsikt… hehe. Men visst är debatten om “för livet” läskig? Helt sjukt konstigt att kvinnor vill ta bort rätten för andra kvinnor att göra abort om de vill/behöver! Jag blir rädd när jag hör om sådant. Inte behöver man tycka att abort är en bra lösning, men fy för att sätta sig på höga hästar och bestämma över andras kroppar!!! Grr!

    Wonderful!

    Here in the US, we are witnessing a terrifying presidential candidate, M. Romney. He terrifies me because he truly believes he, and all men, are superior beings to women. I could almost (not really) live with that except he will wipe out years of progress, slow as it has been. In our best interests, of course. agggggggh!

    The women who are afraid of feminism will take us all down. I say: “If you want your lives a certain shape, stay where you are and don’t venture into the world. But DO NOT limit my world because of your fear!”
