It’s not a surprise to anyone who knows me that I’ve been a combination of broken, angry, empowered and scared every day since November 8th. My heart-project SpeakYourStory has been neglected while we sorted through who we should be and how to move forward in our new reality. We’re coming to some clarity and making plans. And we are more dedicated than ever to uplifting the voices of those most impacted by the fear, racism and misogyny on full national display.
We’ll also never stop sharing stories of persistent, daring, audacious women who challenge society. These stories show us that we too can shrug off the warnings of the patriarchy. These stories show us the risks are worth it. They show us we are not alone. And this new story, by my fierce friend Natalie Phillips, reminds me of being told I’m “too sensitive” in a condescending tone my entire life. We won’t stop being loud and caring and passionate. And if that’s “too much” for you, well, get used to it. <3
