Yreina Flores Ortiz - “La Chingona” artwork and poem
 Today, I will greet the sun as my relative and give the morning my full attention.
I will say “I love you” into the mirror and draw my eyeliner extra straight.
I will not call myself fat because everything in my closet will look good on me.
I will rock my huge Latina hips like the blessing they are.
Watch out!  I might even wear heels.
Today, I will not hand out one unnecessary apology. Today, I will be Chingona!
-Yreina Flores Ortiz

"And oftentimes it [caretaking] isn’t considered a burden or a gendered form of oppression… It’s women’s work, it’s a labor of love… Because it’s uniquely gendered and it’s uniquely feminized, it’s not looked at like a burden."
Whitney, a young woman of color speaking about caretaking and the responsibilities that are placed on girls and women of color to be the backbone of families, on the Breaking Silence panel on gender-specific burdens, domestic and teen dating violence. (via wocinsolidarity)
