I am a feminist.

May 17, 2016

I stumbled upon Marlies Dekkers a few months ago when I was in Vegas for Curve, which is a traveling lingerie show. I was researching brands for midnight muse. When I hit her booth, I could not help but stop, touch, and behold these incredibly sophisticated, couture pieces of lingerie! I must have spent an hour just looking at all her pieces and savoring the authenticity of her brand. This beautiful message was in her book, so I took a picture of it, so I could share it, because it’s pretty amazing!

I’m a self-made woman who has made it my purpose to challenge women to dare. It’s an achievement I am immensely proud of, and for that reason I am equally proud to label myself a feminist.

But looking back more than a hundred years, I’m even prouder of the progress women have made together.

Today, I believe we’re witnessing the dawn of the third wave of the feminist movement. A long-overdue correction in gender inequality is at our doorstep. All the signs point to this moment in time being a new and exciting tipping-point in the history of women.

Strong, independent women are stepping forward as powerful role models, inspiring and motivation smart, young girls of all backgrounds to make the most of their many talents.

And that’s what we need more of today: forward-thinking women. We need women who understand that achieving equality isn’t dependent on external factors; women who understand that equality is not something that is passively received or violently acquired.

As masters of our own destiny, the world is asking us to shape a future of opportunity for ourselves. What matters now is action. Action on our part.

This is our moment and I’m embracing it wholeheartedly as part of the third wave. 

Because I am a feminist
