This Is A Girl’s Bookshelf And…

made for International Women’s Day

I stretch the truth.

My intentions in this drawing were not aaaaactually specifically totally for International Women’s Day… I was just entertaining myself, yesterday.  But I think it fits well and maybe, in my mind, since I knew International Women’s Day was today, this was subconsciously meant for such purposes because I knew I would be too lazy/tired/lazy to take on such an extensive doodle today: International Women’s Day.

Interestingly, of all days,  I had a moment this afternoon where my celebrated gender was moderately offended through a slight made by one nnnnot of my gender.

No matter how far (we’re lead to believe) we’ve come as a society there are so many that were left off somewhere long ago on the timeline of equality… There are definitely folks missing out on some serious teachings of the golden rule up in here.

It’s not impossible to find an extra beat of the heart for some empathy, to take the time to appreciate each others’ worth no matter who, what, or how. We weren’t actually created equal and there’s way more than face value to consider.

I am woman and that’s only the beginning!

She is she, he is her, his is he, she is him, her is they – and it’s only the beginning!!!
