Dear Joan Letter to Feminism

I can’t go back and redo my twenties or even go back to puberty and start my socialization over so that I understand male/female dynamics REALISTICALLY.

Taking a Stand for Ourselves

Madeleine Black shares her story of inhumane sexual violence, toxic sexualization, and emotional and spiritual re-growth. Her story is one of the most powerful ones I’ve ever heard.
