Who run the world?

From a very young age, I could see and feel that life can be tough for the women of this world. If it is true that society is constantly evolving and nowadays you find countless men who are fervent supporters of equal rights and gender equality, it is also obvious that we still have a long way to go…

Let’s put it bluntly: you and I might be lucky enough to have been raised in a tolerant household, where we could speak our minds and feel respected and supported by the male figures around us, where our opinions were taken into account and our choices in life were not limited by any gender stereotypes; but there are many girls out there whose reality is diametrically the opposite and you don’t have to go far to see that.

In the 21st Century, there are women who are afraid of travelling on their own; boys who are told “the colour pink and cooking toys are for girls”; there are women who get paid less than their male counterparts, and that have to choose between professional development and family life; there are guys who think “boys don’t cry” and “men have to provide”; female staff who are told to “dress like women” and girls who are told to behave by other women who honestly think that’s the best way to fit in… I am sure you know what I am talking about.

I am fully aware sexism is deeply rooted in our culture and our ways of thinking, and that societies don’t change overnight, but on the bright side I am also a firm believer in human will to bring about change and in the power of unity!

As Sophie Miller from Fashion Slave points out in her insightful post, change has to start with us women eradicating the stereotypes that perpetuate gender inequality, deleting them from our system, from our core values and even from our language!

And that means stop thinking you are less of a good girl for going on too many dates; stop feeling you have to look skinny and young, be a caring mother, a competent boss, not show too much skin, look happy all the time, embrace motherhood, be the perfect wife/girlfriend, not speak rude or lose your temper, be an independent woman, a model student, a good daughter, have a steady relationship and a long etc. in order to be accepted and achieve happiness!

There’s no way we can tick all the boxes society has come up with to define us, so I’ll simply say what you should be thinking:

YOU ARE AMAZING just the way you are and there is no other like yourself, so that surely makes you as special as those girls you look up to!

This #Femmevibe tee got me reflecting on this topic which hits close to home, and made me realise that, also from a very young age, I knew I would have never chosen a different sex if given the choice.

Being a woman is an amazing adventure that I get to live everyday and learning from the strong women that have been part of and enriched my life, and the men who have loved and respected them unconditionally, is something I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world.

Sure, we still have a long way to go, but we walk the walk one step at a time, so all we can do is make sure our steps are heading in “the right direction”…

    Me ha encantado el post!! Estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo, y la verdad es que este tema daría para hablar años enteros. A veces me soprendo como tú que siga habiendo determinados pensamientos en estos tiempos, y esto me da pie a pensar que queda mucho por hacer. Pero también muchas ganas! Tengo 2 sobrinos y 2 sobrinas y siempre intento aportar mi granito de arena, sobre todo porque veo que algunas personas de su entorno (no sus padres) repiten comportamientos que deberían haberse superado (como lo de los colores o los juguetes que comentas). Y los niños se quedan con todo…
    Respecto al look, la camiseta me encanta, y con el mensaje más. Y esa chaquetita ya te dije por Insta que es perfecta, y es que el color me ha enamorado!!
    Un besazo guapa!!

      Sí, yo también podría hablar de este tema durante horas y como bien apuntas, no es que sean comportamientos totalmente desterrados o que se den en otras sociedades, sino que se dan cerca de nosotros en incluso algunos de esos micromachismos los cometemos sin darnos cuenta de lo interiorizados que están! Pero por supuesto que personas con ganas, ilusión y capacidad de diálogo son las que marcarán la diferencia! Muchas gracias por pasarte, linda. Besos enormes ♥

    It’s really sad that we live in the 21st century and gender equality is still not where is should be. I’m wondering when people will stop being so narrow minded. Like how can we get paid less for the same job? How can some women still be afraid of traveling on their own?… Anyways..I love what you did with this outfit, it looks both chic and casual and I’ll have to get that graphic tee in my life as well :). Wishing you a lovely day! xx

    The colour of that blazer is fantastic. I think you are absolutely right: It is a tough world for women out there but it is getting much better and women are so empowered. We just need to make sure to communicate that to girls as they grow up, that they can do everything they want to do and that no one is allowed to tell them otherwise!
