#women invented all your favorite genres

Actually, the first person to ever have their name associated with an original written work was Enheduanna, a Sumerian princess and priestess born in 2285 BC.

In other words, the FIRST AUTHOR IN HUMAN HISTORY was a woman.

That last gif is pure gold though. They’re military police, before they’re given permission to use a non-lethal weapon, they have to have it used against them. She’s getting tased, and her reflex was to just crush someone’s balls.

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

No, show them the bodies of women and children struck by grenades and tank fire.

Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this. 

Everyone should know these things.

thanks to mainstream media and being unable to show breasts on TV, way too few people know about female signs of cardiac distress, and impending heart attacks. they only know about the “pain in the left arm” male symptom.

i had all these symptoms once and they sent me right to hospital

it was scary bc i didnt know these were the symptoms for female heart issues

Please, please, PLEASE, repost this. i don’t know if I did save or called false alarm, with my boss’ life tonight. I felt I was being a bit paranoid, overreacting, but I told Mirage my thoughts and he, after reading over the article I showed him, immediately sprung into action and then shooed her off to the hospital. I don’t know if I did or not, but I knew she’d been super stressed. She’d off-handedly commented on her arm tingling and I asked her if she felt queasy on a hunch. I went to look at the symptoms and we went from there.

Carol Rosetti’s illustrations are a powerful reminder women are in control of their own bodies

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Women are so artistic and [...] I love working, like I'd edit my own videos but if I don't edit them, I usually like to find a woman editor because they edit differently. Women see different things and I think women just have a different eye and I think there need to be women directors and such because yeah, men are great but women are so rare and they bring something new to the table.

Introducing OpenIDEO's Women's Safety Challenge
Safety is a basic human right – the ability to move freely within a city and access social services without threat of harm or abuse. But for women and girls in low-income urban areas, that's not always the reality. Together with IDEO.org – and in partnership with the Department for International Development – OpenIDEO is launching its Women's Safety Challenge and inviting everyone to contribute research, ideas and feedback to improve safety for women and girls in low-income urban areas. Visit ideo.pn/ws-brief to join the challenge.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.

THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. —madlori

Modeled on this post. This quote needed a gifset that featured a more diverse group of women. Because my takeaway from Lori’s marvelous answer (seriously, go read all of it) is that representation fucking matters and that great female characters do not—and should not—fit into the same cookie cutter mold. Because actual women are not one size fits all. And the irony of having that message cross my dash repeatedly with exclusively young, white, straight, cis women who match a prescriptive definition of beauty was getting to me.

If you could name the most influential women who've inspired you to keep being strong, who are they and why? (by CassandraCalderon87)

I'm gonna have to be cliche and say R.A. Kartini who build an all-girls school and educate the women around her (if thats how the story goes) but when it comes to this question I can't be very specific and point out names. There are a lot of women, anonymous or not, who are quite inspirational and encourage others to be strong, like the soldiers in the middle east who secretly snuck themselves in and go on wars with Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his army.

Also, fictional comic/film super heroines (like Wonder Woman and Black Widow probably... or that chick from Pacific Rim too, theres just so many to name), I mean come on, they're portrayed as dignified and strong & not to mention witty. 

and the anonymous individuals which I call out in groups here http://ask.fm/Ratryoshka/answer/50277789308

‘got herself pregnant’ is the dumbest phrase in the world like forreal if it was possible to get pregnant by ourselves we’d have eaten all the men long ago

it actually is possible to get pregnant (without the sperm of a man whatsoever) using bone marrow from another woman! a child conceived this way can only be female so actually, men are entirely useless. fun fact

let’s begin the feast (◉‿◉✿)
