Women’s Day 2017: Choice is empowerment

thetapinUncategorized4 Comments

Being a woman is hard in any part of the world. The biggest weapon that women can wield is the power of choice, the choice to make our own decisions, the choice to marry or reproduce or not do both, the choice to simply be.  The ability to live without fear, the freedom to live without being judged. There are way too many expectations and demands of women, too many stereotyped casts that we are expected to fill.

A lot of women do succumb to pressure, it’s easy to give in. Ever so often, I hear an unhappy woman tell me, “I don’t really have a choice.” I hope that all of us realize that our lives are ours to lead, and that we get to make our own choices. This International Woman’s Day, here’s to empowering woman all over the world with choice.

    I choose to be me, not thinking about the society, people and etc. I choose to BE BOLD FOR CHANGE.

    Unfortunately having a kid isn’t a choice for everyone — for some of us, it’s nearly impossible, despite our best efforts. I love your drawing though!

    I would absolutely LOVE to have this as a poster for my classroom! Are there any available?
