Pussy Bow Blouse Politics

Blouse: Who What Wear | I also love this one, and this one!

As a twenty-ish year old woman living in 2017, it’s easy for me to feel a sense of entitlement among my gender. In my opinion, we should get to whip our boob out in public to nurse our tiny human, walk down a dark street without fear of getting assaulted, and wear the tiniest dress we want without getting cat-called to.

We want to believe that our mothers mothers fought hard for our equal rights and that now we can reap the rewards. We want to put up our feet, and drink a beer (or in my case -take two sips of a stout). But after talking with many women, I’ve realized that we’re starting to move backwards socially.

If the President of the United States can say he grabbed a woman by the pussy… I think we have not made the milestones we want to believe we’ve made as women.

We’re starting to slip…we’ve gotten a little lax. I think we’ve made leaps and bounds forward in body acceptance, but not in objectifying women. We’ve moved forward in empowering women, but not in the whole “mom-shaming” thing we do to each other. There’s work to be done. The women in our history made leaps and bounds but it isn’t over.

So when I wake up in the morning and feel like Susan B did a job well done and that I’m entitled to put on a dress and tights… I shut that attitude down as fast as I can. I put on my suit, and one of my pussy bow blouses, and go to work.
