A big thank you to Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez and Bob Bland - the four main organizers of the Women's March - who were arrested yesterday protesting outside Trump Tower in nyc for A Day Without A Woman (9 other protestors were also arrested).

This is the best arrest photo ever. Wish I could have been there but motherhood and raising a feminist son is my priority right now. I keep looking for numbers on yesterday's global strike *fingerscrossed*.

Feminism has finally gone mainstream.

Because #PleasureEmpowers

Yes, this Wednesday is the International Women’s Day, a day for vindication and demand that has also to be a celebration. Let’s make it a day to celebrate our own pleasure as well.

Because – pleasure empowers

Because celebrating both life and pleasure is the best way of facing all denial over our own body and our own sexuality. Because your pleasure is yours alone, and nobody can tell you when, how or with whom getting it rightfully.

Yeah yeah, we know… work, children, house duties, or a thousand small inconveniences we got pushed over… but no! Stop giving excuses, enough is enough.

Get some time for yourself, dedicate to your own pleasure and happiness, just because. A brief moment to connect with our own breathing and our body, with our vulva and our joy.

The Value of Feminine Upheaval

This poster was spotted on a bus in Ireland.  I never knew I had so much in common with communists.

Happy Belated International Women's Day

It was International Women's Day yesterday.

I couldn’t help but complain about the fact that women have been pushing for equal rights for the last few hundred years.  We started calling them feminists in the 17th century…. so why do we still need International Women's Day? 

Because we haven't tipped the balance of power. Even in Denmark, Scandinavia where I’m from we need it.  It seems incredible but the fact is that women are still not paid the same money for the same work - equal work for equal pay - is crazy.  We do the same job.  Why can't we be paid the same salary?
