Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.


1 in 5 teenagers have thought about suicide, about 1 in 6 teenagers have made plans for suicide, and more than 1 in 12 teenagers have attempted suicide in the last year. As many as 8 out of 10 teenagers who have commited suicide tried to ask for help in some way before committing suicide. Reblog this if you’re always here to listen.






Not a question.




Anonymous asked:

In regards to that anon from awhile ago. I agree that you can't be a feminist if you're pro choice. If you wanted men to be below us you can't just take a fetus out of a women's body. Imagine how the child feels growing up knowing that they were adopted and taken out of their mothers womb when they were very young.

What have to do more look like?



a few notes:

- this was supposed to be a counter to naki’s genderbends but then I took forever drawing it (I actually drew this twice ha ha)

- did you know dreads are hard to draw god I ref’d it from temari's cassim fanarts

- as for oowada’s hairdo I looked up pompadour for women!! 

- regarding their clothes I wanted to still keep them as school uniform so changes were made (i.e. ishimaru can’t be in a gakuran if she’s a girl, same goes to hagakure’s track jacket. but for oowada I just went ‘fuck rules’ and gave her pants)

- you know why fujisaki is there

- i’m bad at body types but i tried u_u
