"To me, female empowerment means being liberated and to feel as though your identity and to feel as though your identity makes you stronger, it pushes you forward rather than holding you back. Females in general are thrown under the bus for basically anything they identify with; from their sexualities to their appearances and interests.
To rebel against this is female empowerment. To experience such negativity from such a young age definitely gave me thick skin and made me into a confident and positive individual. It is so important to know that you shouldn't change yourself or your energy to fit into the ideal that society creates for females. Girls are strong as hell, we need to help pull each other up instead of pushing each other down"
