If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy

Happy wife, happy life...The hand that rocks the cradle, rocks the world.
Pithy little sayings but in them is the recognition of the strength of women. Societies don't try to subjugate people they believe are weak, they subjugate those they know are strong. For far too long women have allowed themselves to be judged by rules we didn't write. We are told over and over that we need to look and act a certain way to be respected. But that respect only means we will be free from being demeaned it doesn't mean we will be treated as equals. It's time we quit playing by the rules they wrote for us and start playing by our own rules. Rules that say all women, in their beautiful diversity of body, thought, and action are inherently valuable. That the right to choose runs the gamut from reproductive health to make-up to motherhood. Womanhood, in and of itself, unites us. Do not allow false issues to separate us. That is their game and we don't have to play it.

2. True that

So many stupid sayings out there. There are stupid ones about men as well. Another sad thing I see is the division of women against women. Unfortunately there are women that attack other women. That does so much damage to women's rights. For example, I am a working mom but I am not going to attack a stay at home mom.
