On International Women’s Day, and during Women’s History Month, I’m reminded of Holly Golightly. I know that in our modern world, women are supposed to be always fiercely independent, competent, smart, outgoing, and fully-together feminist badasses. And, trust me…Most of us are exactly that.
But, I think that most of us also feel that unpopular feeling of insecurity, fear, and restlessness. I think we struggle with the mean reds, crafting our identity, fighting against the “lane” that society has chosen for us, and forcing the world to see us for our successes instead of our bodies.
