Spring is in the air and Easter is right around the corner. I'm one of those people who loves to start planning out B's basket way in advance and, per usual, I try to shop small as much as I can. So I thought I would share a list of some of my favorite basket stuffers for your mini feminists of any age.
Each year during the month of March, Women's History Month is celebrated all over the world to commemorate the successes women have already accomplished, as well as all future ones we’re destined to accomplish. There are so many ways you can celebrate on your own, with your family, or as a group; so keep reading if you need a spark of inspiration!
I remember the very first time that I took my child into the emergency room to be hospitalized for his mental health. He was 8 and he'd just shoved me down the stairs. He came running down them after me. He was crying so hard. He looked down at me and told me he didn't want to feel this way anymore.
I am an immigrant. And out of many, we are one.
Valentine's Day not your thing? I get it. It's not my thing either. Galentine's Day, however, that is a day I can get behind. Who doesn't love an excuse to ditch the SO and the kids (if you have them) so you can drink wine and laugh with your best girlfriends? I absolutely love to buy my friends gifts so I decided to compile the ultimate Galentine's Day gift guide with a little something for every badass bestie in your life.
Bear with me as my stomach is in knots writing this. I've never told my story in full.
We're mothers. We're the ones expected to stay. We're the ones who have to hold everything together. We're the rock, the glue. We're nurses, maids, teachers, lawyers, mediators, judges...we're strong! But sometimes we aren't.
I was in the car with my mom, we were just chit chatting as we often do, and I brought up how it would be so cool to have the privilege of white people. She chuckled and agreed, then asked which one I would want the most, kind like when you ask people what their super power would be - mine would be White Privilege.
Welcome to July! In the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, it’s quite difficult to feel patriotic when there are children separate from their parents in cages at our border. We have to do something. We have to fight and change the policies that are corroding our country from the inside out. And at Wire and Honey, we love to put our money where our mouth is. That’s why the July charity is RAICES.
But here's something that you may not know about feminism - there is a difference between WHITE feminism and BLACK feminism. And no, I'm not "adding to the problem by separating races". Bottom line is that with separate races, comes separate issues. Black females are more likely to die during or after childbirth. We are earning less than white females with the SAME credentials, we are the most likely to be unarmed when killed by the police (that's still an issue, don't let the next shooting wake you up to the problem, stay woke.)
