Call the Midwife Tells the Stories of Forgotten Women

Feminism is a concept that is sometimes a little hard to define. You could go to the dictionary and it talks about advocating the equality of women with men across all domains, but that rather self-evident truth doesn’t feel sufficient somehow. I’ve always felt that feminism has an obligation to advocate for the value of validity of all women, and their work and experiences. And if that’s the definition you go with, then you’d be hard pressed to find a more feminist show than Call the Midwife.

Call the Midwife is a BBC series based on the memoirs of the same name, written by Jennifer Worth. It centres on the lives of the nurse-midwives of Nonnatus House, in the poor working class area of Poplar in London in the 1950s and 60s. Just to add a bit of a fun twist, half the team of nurses are young women (well, at least until Nurse Crane shows up in the fifth series) and the other half are Anglican nuns. I mean, nuns who also blow you away with their medical competence? Yes, please.

Would you do YAndere!Yoosung hcs?

Authors note; of course lovely !!


Yoosung;

      ♡ Is inCREDIBLY protective holy shit like

           ♡ “Who were you talking to?” “Yoosung chill out I just got the pizza and tipped the guy” “hE WAS ALL OVER YOU!”


      ♡ Is a complete innocent yandere. You know, the sweet kind that go “b-but I did it for you…I did it to make you happy…why wont you be happy?”


      ♡ Slowly as his obsession continues, he starts to call you every time you go out with a few friends. 

           ♡ Sometimes he will even “dress code” you, saying you can only wear that for him. then you go out looking like a goddamn nun


      ♡ His calls begin to rang to every 30 minutes. Then to every 15. Then to every 10.

           ♡ If you don’t pick up instantly, he gets angry. He says you are worrying him.


      ♡ He will start to guilt you out of leaving the house. He hates it when you are gone and out where someone could touch you…or even look at you.


      ♡ Pretty soon he starts to get frustrated when you want to leave, and begins to accuse you of being unfaithful to him and seeing other men and women behind his back.


      ♡ He falls into his paranoia of you being unfaithful and decides to put a lock on the door to keep you in the house. He comes home everyday with roses, food, anything that may make you happy. but he still trapped you.


      ♡   Pft there is no way he is letting you keep your phone either. He throws your old one out the window, breaking it, and buys you a new one

           ♡ guess who the only contact is 

               ♡ If the guess was too hard it’s yoosung


      ♡ He thinks that people are sneaking in, so he decides to finish his classes online so that he can stay at home with you. all. the. time. 


      ♡ handcuffs may or may not be involved in the sittuation


Authors note; Damn yoosung, jfc that yandere smol he is such a cutie. thanks for requesting !! And everyone feel free to write more requests.

i woke up from a dream about an hour ago where i was this weird monster that was a combination of baphomet, a scorpion, and a nun, which is funny because i already have characters that are these three things (galatians, scorpella, and lanka monxa)

anyways in the dream i got together different kinds of monsters and we overthrew a church and turned it into our sanctuary? n our plan was to murder whoever did us wrong but i cant remember if we did do it or i woke up before it happened

anyways it looked way better in my dream. i cant remember everything when i wake up.

Week 4–Sister Mary Cynthia

“Nurse to Nun”

Happy Thursday! Continuing with the nuns this week, it’s time to write about one of the more intriguing characters on the show (for me)–Sister Mary Cynthia, played by the excellent Bryony Hannah. She’s been on quite a journey, and I wonder where the show will take her next. More thoughts follow:

265 - Innocence

Black and orange butterfly –
Flying joyously.
Wings like a nun’s hands:
First folder in prayer,
Then open in offering.

The world moves toward war. Leaders increase their rhetoric. Armies mass along the border. The world, it seems, never tires of conflict.

We should remember the innocent in life. The delicate, the gossamer, the beautiful. A butterfly lives for a day. It comes into the world with very little reason except to fly and mate. It does not question its destiny. It does not engage in any alchemy to extend its lifespan or to change its lot. It goes about its brief life happily.

A butterfly is always attracted to the beautiful. Whether it is the sun on a blade of grass or the edge of a deep ruby rose, the butterfly spends its brief time dwelling on loveliness.

Even the angry and insane leave the butterfly alone. Why can we not learn to honor the innocence in one another? Maybe we spend too much time dwelling on the ugly. In the name of practicality and realism, we think about strategy, defense, territory, gain, and advantage. We are too late to be like the butterfly. But at least we can honor it, and move as closely as possible to its simple existence.

Random photos from today…

● Went to MOA this morning para mag-grocery with my mom, auntie susan and tita merlyne.

● Bibili sana ako ng shoes na mag-mamatch sa dress na susuotin ko sa birthday ni lola. Kaso matagal akong mamili kaya sabi ko bukas nalang.

● Ini schedule kami ni auntie nung isang araw for a massage and body scrub kaso wala ako sa mood nun tyaka hindi ko feel mag-isa dahil ayaw din ng pinsan ko. Kaya sabi ko sa pinsan ko sabay nalang kami bukas. Tyaka iniisip ko rin kung pwede ba magpa massage kahit may period?.. Ay bahala na.

● Mag-ggym sana ako today kaso nung nag-ask ako sa admin, wala daw gym dito sa condo. Sayang lang nasa mood pa naman ako.

● Ang sarap tumambay sa balcony tuwing gabi, sayang lang dib hindi ko nasaktuhang tumambay kanina nung umuulan.

● And then I spent the rest of the day with my lola. Daming chikka. Kaloka. Haha hay, I love my lola so much talaga…

O'nun ilk aşkı olmayabilirsin, son aşkı da; hatta bir tanesi de, daha önce aşık …oldu, tekrar olabilir…. ama şu an seni seviyorsa daha ne olabilir ki? tıpkı senin gibi, o da mükemmel değil ve ikiniz birlikte asla mükemmel olamayabilirsiniz. ama şayet o seni güldürebiliyorsa, iki kez düşündürebiliyorsa -kabul edersin ki; insanlar hata yaparlar- onu seninle tutmaya çalış ve ona verebileceğin herşeyi ver. seni günün her anında düşünmüyor olabilir ama sana kırabileceğini bildiği bir parçasını verecektir -kalbini. yaralama onu, değiştirmeye çalışma, çözümlemeye kalkma ve verebileceğinden fazlasını bekleme. seni mutlu ettiğinde gülümse, kızdırdığında fark etmesini sağla ve yokken özlediğini bil…

Sevgi Soysal, 1976 - BBC TÜRKÇE

“Londra'da, Ankara'da, İstanbul'da ya da Zap Suyu'nun yanı başında, nerede olursa olsun, kadınları birbirine ortak eden tek bir şey vardır: Hayat. Sürmekte ve sürecek olan hayatın tartışılmaz emekçisi olmak.
Evet, kadın hayat denilen güzelim oluşumun yılmaz, vazgeçilmez savaşçısıdır. Sözümüz hayatsa, kadın hayat adına ölümlerle çekilmez. Çünkü kadın doğumu bilir. Yani hayatın ölüme, bereketin kısırlığa, ilerlemenin durgunluğa olan tartışılmaz üstünlüğünü bilir. Kısaca emekçidir o. Hayatın emekçisi.  Budur en büyük gücü kadının. ”
