This is my 94 year-old Grandmother who has had Alzheimer’s Disease for 30 years. We rarely speak about elder abuse but recently there was a man who was just convicted of sexually assaulting his wife because she had severe memory-loss and therefore was not fit to live without medical assistance, handle her finances, and let alone consent. There was also a male nurse who was caught raping nursing home patients. These are issues to be aware of & Im so glad my Grandmother lived to this day to support this cause! 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 #StopRapeEducate #elderabuse #elders #nursinghome #granny #womensrights #feminism #feminist #humanrights #rapeculture #peaceandlove #peaceonearth #bethechange #abuse #domesticviolence #survivor #yesallwomen #itsonus #law #society #foodforthought #memoryloss #alzheimers #dementia #overcome
So this is an extremely time-sensitive call for help. I made a side blog under my original blog because I am deeply ashamed and would like to remain anonymous from hate. (If you have full intentions of helping me, I don’t mind giving out my personal details.) I have an appointment set next week on Wednesday (DEC 7, 2016) and I need to come up with $1300 by then. I am 18 weeks pregnant currently and the clinic is a few hours away, and its super time sensitive as its only a week to earn this money and I CAN NOT reschedule because of how late I am in this pregnancy. I recently lost my job and have no source of income. I could become homeless. I CAN NOT have this baby. I just can’t. I need help PLEASE. I’m not sure how to receive any donations, but I do have a paypal if that works! (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you need proof of my pregnancy, I do have ultrasound pictures I can provide.
If you cannot donate, please just share this. I need this to reach as many people as possible before then. I’m so sorry for this I don’t know where else to turn.
Thank you everyone, for your time.
EDIT: I had a fundraiser but it got deleted because apparently they don’t want to be associated with pregnancy terminations. My only option of receiving money now is through PayPal only!!! Please reblog this edited version so people know!! I only need $1000 now!!
This Movement was not just in America because it was an International campaign that pushed for Black Women to be seen as dignified ladies with the utmost respect in a time when many still looked at the Black Woman like she was the same rag tag mistress that many were during chattel slavery.
The New Negro Women may have been influenced heavily by Wealthy class European standards but it was indeed the Predecessor to both the Black Nationalist, and Pan-African Movements that would take the World by storm during the 1920’s.
What is happening to Kesha has happened to dozens of other women in the music/film industry. Her producer, @thedoctorluke drugged and raped her for 10 years. When she spoke up, she lost her entire music career and can’t legally work as a musician until the lawsuit is over. Please spread repost and spread this message. No one deserves this. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #StopRapeEducate #freedomforkesha #kesha #music #musician #singer #hollywood #sexualassault #womensrights #awareness #feminism #feminist #heforshe #yesallwomen #itsonus #rapeculture #victimblaming #consent #drluke #bodypositive #empower #youarenotalone #lgbt #lgbtq
Pro-choicers are claiming that abortion is a woman’s right. And I understand, to an extent: It’s her body; she can do with it what she wants. No one can tell her what to do without her consent… etc. Right? And yeah, as a feminist, I believe everyone has the right to be independent and become who she is (so to speak). But, that baby, that fetus, that thinggrowing inside of a woman? Her? Him? It? Yeah, that’s not your body. Isn’t the right to life somewhere in the Constitution? Don’t we believe in liberty? in equality? in giving everyone a shot at a silver lining?
And yeah, what about those little girls? who’re drumming to that steady heartbeat? who’re making their own unique fingerprints? who're listening to that hush-hush murmur from above? What about them? Women? Not yet. Young girls? Maybe. Silent? Voiceless? Yes. We’ve all been there, done that.
You know, there’s a life at stake here, right? And it is independent of the mom’s. I’ don’t know my mom. And I have potential, I’m told. I can succeed, I’m told. I matter, I’m told by the very people who say that she- he- it doesn’t.
I’m a feminist. I’m not pro-choice. Who do I fight for? I fight for all women who have failed to be heard, who have stopped trying to be, and who never got that chance. What about you?
It’s clear you don’t understand what feminism is, Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social and economic EQUALITY to men. So please reject this notion that feminism is about superiority to men.
By saying you are against feminism you are insulting every suffragette who endured horrible police brutality to just to win your right to vote. You’re degrading every woman who fought for your right to own property, your right to divorce, for your access to birth control, who fought tirelessly to make marital rape, domestic violence, and workplace sexual harassment a crime. You’re disrespecting the women who quietly propelled the civil rights movement, the women who fought for theirs and your right to an education, the women who took a stand against on campus sexual assault, the women who worked to eradicate back alley abortions and give you a choice, the women who are still fighting for equal pay, the demolition of gender rolls, slut shaming, the objectification of our bodies in the media, beauty standards, rape culture, cat calling, for male and female rape victims alike, who are still fighting to end human trafficking and sex slavery across the globe, who are fighting for your human rights. Feminists have done so much for you and your mothers and sisters.
You reap the rewards of feminists sacrifices everyday of your life. Imagine the tragedy your life would be with out feminists. Open your eyes and have some gratitude for these women. When you grin with your cutesy post about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the struggle of the last 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, fundamental human rights and a VOICE.
“Over fourteen hundred years ago, Islam gave women rights that women in the West have only recently began to enjoy. - Before Islam, women were considered shameful, female children were buried alive, prostitution was rampant, divorce was only in the hands of the husband, inheritance was only for the strong, and oppression was widespread. Islam came and abolished these practices. Even now, in “developed countries”, women are not granted respect, dignity and honour, let alone equal pay for equal work. Islam, however, regards women as precious and valuable, not to be disrespected or disgraced.”
“When a woman is a daughter, she opens a door of paradise for her father. When she is a wife, she completes half of the deen of her husband. Allah has raised women’s status to so high that when she is a mother, Paradise lies under her feet. If everyone knew the true status of women in Islam, even the men would want to be women.”
