International Women’s Day – let’s talk support and renumeration! 

Women’s emotional and creative labour is used by everyone in society (sadly most of all other women) as if it was worthless.  
That is to say, it is used with no thanks, no support to replenish the energy used and no renumeration. 
This is even more true for women of colour, women with disabilities, immigrant women and LGBT women. 
This has to change if women are ever to be free. 
Look at your time and energy to see where your emotional and creative energy is being sapped.
You are not a bottomless well for other people to use.
You get to choose.

Only you get to choose.
Also: look to the women who support you and support them back – at least say thanks!
Happy International Women’s Day everyone!
