trying to cheer myself up by thinking of how lovely&lush my parents’ garden will be when this is over and I finally get to visit them in exactly 9 days. All the tulips & daffodils will, hopefully, be in bloom. <3
People sometimes say that we will know feminism has done its job when half the CEOs are women. That’s not feminism; to quote Catharine MacKinnon, it’s liberalism applied to women. Feminism will have won not when a few women get an equal piece of the oppression pie, served up in our sister’s sweat, but when all dominating hierarchies - including economic ones - are dismantled.

My study of history taught me that many women artists have been erased from history and one of my goals has been to overcome that erasure.
PS: Why are ALL the female skaters wearing skirts/dresses? I remember when Carolina Kostner used to skate in black trousers. And look at the images of Mao Asada and Lipnitskapia practicing. They look so cool. (And, of course, it would be refreshing to see some male skaters in skirts!)
