V and politics 


I am moved by this years election by so many things.  Ultimately I am stimulated by feminist action.  I am looking at deeper ways I haven’t showed up fully as myself let alone show up as a powerful woman in this world.  I have historically played small and stayed still at times out of fear.  I have also fought for what I believe in and am still grasping what this next 4 years will look like as a woman if I stand still.  It’s a rise for justice not only for Women but for many. If I see a hate Crime Then I will record and report.  I will also do my best to step in with courage.  If I see something that hurts me then I will speak up.  If I am moved by something inspiring then I with say hell yeah!!! Its My Choice to Do or Stand Still!

With this political charge I can’t seem to stop drawing Vagina’s. 

 Yep that’s right Vagina’s.  With this election I found myself unconsciously wanting to draw them.  I was like shit I’m drawing Vaginas.   Drawing them in all shapes and sizes. Plus all the colors on the color wheel.  It’s a reflection of life and how different but yet still the same.  I think of it as an ultimate love of self and self expression.  As Women we create life.  Vaginas are open and creation happens to come from there.  So I am going to create as a woman who will do my damnedest to love and laugh and cry and scream and shout! Using all my self expression.  

As Feminist Woman I have much to learn.  Tap into my human potential and keep on doing it. 

 I wear a “safety pin” because I believe in the safety of fellow humans no matter what gender they like or the color of their skin or spiritual beliefs.  I am a fighter.  I Stand For Justice!  I Am Woman!  RARW!!!
