Why Modern Feminists Are #NotTakenSeriously

Equality is a feat that women have been working towards for years; we are constantly evolving through waves of feminist activists who bravely fight for our rights.   We are women and we want to be taken serious.  We wanted to vote, we made it happen.  We wanted to work outside of the home, we made it happen.  We want to be seen as strong, independent women, and every day we work to make that happen.  We have come so far, yet we haven’t quite made it to the finish line.  Equal pay, equal opportunities, we simply want equality where equality is deserved.  We are women so here us roar!    ..right?  Or are we growling so loudly that we are scaring everyone who can hear us? FEMINISTS are not.  EXTREMISTS are. I have been hesitant in the past to call myself a feminist.  I would hear the word and visualize women burning their bras and marching around DC naked.  I would think about women who refuse to wear dresses and women who hate men.  I …

A Woman’s Ink

I am not a criminal, I am not a drop out, I am not mean, I am not scary. I am simply a woman with tattoos. I have multiple large tattoos on my arms, legs, and hand, and I plan to obtain many more.  Not because of the attention, not because I think that they will make me “cool”, not because they are all the rage right now, and not because I want people to think that I am a “hard-ass”.  I solely get tattoos because I love them. I have so much passion for every new piece of artwork.  I love that I can put all of my trust into an artist who has NO eraser.  It is thrilling!  It is a massive leap of faith.  I can almost feel my adrenaline racing thinking about the buzzing when you walk into a tattoo studio.  At the end of your session(s), these artists give you this one of a kind gift on your skin that you can admire for a lifetime.  A piece of ornate and …

The Women Behind Project:Women

Hello!  This is our introduction video for Project:Women, where we tell you a little about ourselves, how Project:Women got started, and what we want to do here.  Also, we ask you one BIG QUESTION, to get the ball rolling. The question is… What is your favorite thing about being a woman? Comment, share, connect with us!  We want to hear your voice. PS.  This video was our very first take, and it is twice as long as our “final version” that we shared on our Youtube channel.  But we decided to share this one here because it shows our true selves, silliness, imperfections and all.  And that is what Project:Women is all about. filmed by Paul Hurley 🙂

Surviving Life as a Young Mom

Where do I even begin? First, a major shoutout to Tara for giving me the opportunity to write for this unbelievable place that she has created for women.  A spot that is going to empower women and give us the best knowledge and vibes for the week.. or probably even the month.. who am I kidding, hopefully FOREVER.  I was very nervous to write my first entry for Project:Women.  I mean, the last time I was asked to write I was a senior in high school! However, the difference here is that THIS is personal.  I was actually on someone’s mind to write because my opinions and thoughts want to be heard!  And bonus – this blog is the biggest opportunity to write for the best audience: WOMEN! Those who know me would probably laugh at my line above “..the last time I was asked to write I was a senior in high school” They would say, “Wasn’t that a couple of years ago?” And I would giggle because it totally was!  Actually, it was …
