Happy International Women’s Day March 8th 2018

March 8th, 2018 @ Amber

Happy International Women’s Day to all of my ladies out there! Take the day to appreciate yourself and all of the other amazing women in your life. Women have inspired me, lifted me up, made me strong, and empowered me. I came from the womb of a fantastic woman, and I am the sister to a heroic strong woman, and the friend of many truly wonderful women of all shapes, sizes, ages and colors.

I also wanted to take a moment to say that if you will be doing any shopping today, consider shopping from woman owned businesses. Pay women. Support women. Buy a piece of artwork from a woman, shop lingerie from a woman run boutique, anything to help support another woman. If we all help each other and lift up our fellow women, there is no stopping us. With all of the movements happening right now, it’s a time to band together as women and support one another, especially those women who are further oppressed and less represented such as gay women, disabled women, black women and other women of color, sex workers, plus-sized women. Support plus-sized and disabled models, buy from gay owned boutiques or online shops run by sex workers, shop from WOC owned businesses. Vote with your money, vote for women!

You can also donate your time or money to helping women. Buy Girl Scout Cookies. Donate time or clothing to a womens shelter, donate money to a cause you believe in such as Time’s Up or a fund for DACA or Planned Parenthood, join the March For Our Lives protest in your area.

And remember to care for yourself today and every day. Self care is so important, especially right now, when we’re living in a time where womens voices are trying to be heard but we are still dealing with the deafening silence of men and our government. Soak in a warm bath, go get a massage or manicure, listen to relaxing music and decompress. You do you today, ladies.

Sending my love to all of my fellow women out there today. I stand with you. I hear you. I won’t ever stop fighting for you.

Love and Resistance,
