I Love Millennial Women Because You #GiveAFuck

Real women fight for something, other than their own emotions.

I love millennial women because they give a fuck.

hey get that feminism needs to be intersectional. They recognize their privileges and try to be aware of their conscious and unconscious biases.

Millennial women were raised in a society that became complacent on issues of gender equality and until Trump many had never paid much attention to politics. Many were still somewhat reluctant to define themselves as feminists.

But not anymore.

Contrary to the stereotype millennial women as a group are not spoiled narcissists. They are educated, hard working and empathetic. They are putting their time, work and money where their mouth is by flexing their socially conscientious purchasing power, career choices and leisure time.

Millennial women really believe that what they do makes a difference. Whether it’s climate change, racism, LGBTQ issues, animal rights and/or sexism they want to spend their time and money on social concerns that matter to them.

Authenticity has become critical in a world constant parody.

Young women want to stay “real” and they get that women everywhere have an obligation to each other. Millennial women have dreams and ambitious and they long for a life and a career that allows them to express their individuality and creativity

Create. Not for the money. Not for the fame. Not for the recognition. But for the pure joy of creating something and sharing it

Millennial women are not tired (yet) and they fundamentally understand that if anything matters then everything matters

And when these young women decide something matters, shit happens.
