If you know me, you know I’m not a cryer. But these past couple of days, I have been a complete & total mess. If I see anything having to do with the election, god forbid anything about little girls keeping up hope, or a 90 year old woman who had waited for this past Tuesday her whole life only to be let down, I completely lose my shit. I’m sure many of you have been feeling the same way; hopeless, scared, and defeated.
The days following Tuesday night have been rough to say the least, but I do know that in order to get through this feeling, we have to come together and be positive. I will never be okay with what happened, I refuse to normalize it. But we have to stay hopeful and we have to fight. We can’t let women, the LGBTQ community, people of color, and people of different religions live in fear every day.
So, this is what I propose: I’ve compiled a list of fun, girl power movies, tv shows & songs to lighten the mood & empower us once again. So get together with your girlfriends, moms & sisters, watch these movies, listen to these songs before girls night out and I promise you’ll feel just a little bit better. Then, once we’ve had some time, let’s put on our pant suits and work to make sure we don’t ever have to feel this way again!
