The Womanifesto Challenge


I will be a quiet thinker, thoughtful artist and shy grinner
I will be an outspoken activist, make wild things and scream
I will have skin that glows and thighs that are raw and red

I will be a trouble-maker and go against the grain
I will be smooth and get hairy and rough around the edges
I will have rolls, scars, bumps and a double chin

I will whisper and yell loudly
I will paint my nails and swear unapologetically
I will believe in feminism, gay marriage, Buddha, God and Carl Sagan

I will push up my breasts and let them hang
I will love, fuck, climax and show my stretch marks
I will ask for seconds and order dessert

I will shake my hips and sweat at concerts
I will bake cookies and kill spiders
I will wear red lipstick and use my brain

My voice will get loud. My body will take up space, wear tight clothes and nobody will convince me it is wrong. My value and existence will not shift with my weight, color of my hair, tattoos or the length of my skirt. I will be part of a revolution, start a revolution and be a revolution.

I wrote my Womanifesto to join in with the self-love ass-kicking Jes from The Militant Baker. She continues to blow my mind and inspire me. I love her like lemon meringue pie. She says a Womanifesto is  "a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, and views of its female author. May include themes of empowerment, independence, self love, consciousness, affirmation, and individual acceptance; your positive beliefs about yourself. Created to give self-described definition in regards to the innate beauty inside of every woman. Yes, even you."
