Third-Wave Feminism and Masculinity

As I sit in anger, my mind can't help but remind me of that one time, where I was accused of being a 'third wave feminist'. I use the word accuse, because this male, threw the word at me as though I should be ashamed of it. Nevertheless, I have no problem being called a… Continue reading Third-Wave Feminism and Masculinity

The Mind That Never Sleeps 😞

Current society glorifies material things and success stories. I'm one of them, I aspire for both. However, often times because everyone is so busy presenting the best version of themselves, we often do not realise the internal demons that they may be battling.

A very good friend of mine worded it perfectly when I asked for her opinion on the topic: "I feel… Continue reading Myth: Why Do Women Tear Each Other Down?

Beware of Destination Addiction!

I used to think that in order to attain happiness, I had to first of all achieve certain milestones: graduate, pass my driving test, buy my first (or second) car, move cities, be promoted..I was therefore left somewhat baffled when even after having accomplished all these goals, the euphoric high only lasted a short while.… Continue reading Beware of Destination Addiction!

It was observed that men feel entitled to things simply because they are men, deeming themselves to have more economic power than women. This speaks to a large societal problem which has deep ties in patriarchy, most especially amongst… Continue reading Why As Ladies, We Should Be Financially Independent
