Feminism: we still need it

I had a friend (had, not have) who used to say that feminism is overrated, and that considers that prioritizing women empowerment has become an obsession.  He’s not the only modern modern, liberated, even educated man who has ever said that. Many men nowadays are frustrated by feminism, they claim it’s hardcore, and they strongly […]

Suffocated by modern progressive society

I wrote before about being suffocated by many things in my life. I spoke about being suffocated by society, by traditions, by patriarchy, by Zionism, and by occupation. This time I have something different that suffocates me. Something that should in fact liberate me, or make me a great human being. I try to be […]

#IWD2018

Today is the International Women’s day. And for some reason, I don’t like making a huge deal out of this day. Perhaps because I’m fed up with all of the women empowerment posts on the social media, and all of the cliched statements that are recently made. You can go around, and feel like “Oh […]

Little Princesses are sick of society fucking standards

I found this shocking, yet I’m pleased. If you’re appalled by hearing little girls swearing with no shame, then maybe you can think of the society standards. And over think about feminism and equal rights in our so-called modern society. Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and […]

‪#‎Who_You_R‬

Outlander

I did not have the chance to read the book but I started watching the series “Outlander”. I personally love it and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves watching/reading stories about history/period, powerful/smart women, resistance, freedom, and time travelling. The series follows an English woman trying to escape the 1740s Scotland back to […]

Her Eyes

Originally posted on Strawberry Fields:
She is a woman. A beautiful woman, full of life, she has a wild spirit of love. She dances like the waves, so delicately and gracefully. She walks like the wind, so lightly. She smiles like a child, so innocently. But her eyes, they’re tired, full of sadness, full of…

Sisyphus and the Arab Woman

In the myth, Sisyphus was punished to be compelled to roll and immense boulder up the hill, only to watch it roll down once he reaches the top, and to repeat this action of rolling the boulder, forever. The same goes for the Arab woman, she is punished to roll an immense boulder of traditions […]

Rape – Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines

I hated this song when I first heard it and watched the video – and as others would agree it is one disgusting song. I found this just now – even though you might have found so many articles and posts about what this song promotes. I need to reblog this: Robin Thicke’s summer hit Blurred […]
