I, of course, am all about celebrating womanhood, but I think it’s always important that we remember to celebrate women at EVERY intersection of their existence. It’s not enough to celebrate women on the axes you have in common. It’s not enough to champion reproductive rights, but not civil rights. It’s not enough fight the injustices faced by cisgender women and turn a blind eye to those of the LGBTQ community.
Real womanhood, real feminism means stepping in and speaking up when you have nothing to gain.
