Watch Emma’s speech and take action

PREACHHHHHH

This entire speech sums up my thoughts on feminism. If people (friends from uni that don’t understand why I’d call myself a feminist, this is for you) were wondering what feminism is to me, watch this speech.

Paul Hawken 
“When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: If you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse. What I see everywhere in the world are ordinary people willing to confront despair, power, and incalculable odds in order to restore some semblance of grace, justice, and beauty to this world.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love  
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”
