Tumblr could use a lot more feminism. Life could use a lot more feminism, as far as we're concerned. We are living in some scary times, especially if you are a women or person of color. We want you to fight back. So we're bringing you some history and quotes from kick ass women. And our hope is that you will be as inspired as we are. We welcome submissions and ideas.
“Don’t let anybody tell you not to be angry. We have every right to be angry. We have every reason to be angry. And we ARE angry. And the reason that we’re angry — the reason we are angry — is because this is OUR country, and they took our government and imprisoned our queen — right here she was imprisoned in her palace. And they banned our language. And then they forcibly made us a state of the racist, colonialist United States of colonial America. Do you have a right to be angry? Of course you do. Of course you do!”
