sarahsophief In This Divided Political Season I'm Loving This From @onbeing.

Another Byproduct Of The #GOP & #Trump Rhetoric Is The Inability To Listen, Empathize & Speak Nuance Past Difference.
Beg The Question: "Are We Not Of Interest To Each Other?" "Are we not of interest to each other? Which to me isn’t about, I like her shoes or, oh, he has a fascinating job. It’s much deeper than that. Are we human beings who are in community, do we call to each other? Do we heed each other? Do we want to know each other? To reach across what can be a huge void between human beings. I look at my children and I think, as deeply as I know you I do not know what’s inside your heads. But I crave knowing them that deeply. And so it’s most intense with one’s beloveds, but I think it’s a way to move in the world. And if we don’t do that with language that’s very, very, very precise — not prissy, but precise — then are we knowing each other truly?"- Elizabeth Alexander

sarahsophief Up On AT ONCE (link in bio): Equal Parenting and Building an Equal Relationship
We talk a lot about the importance of equal parenting. We talk a lot about valuing caregiving. We know that equality will come with a new generation of feminist men. But practical issues of equality in our personal lives still loom large. How do we have these conversations with ourselves and with our partners? How do discuss the most personal topic of domestic equality in a way that doesn’t feel like an indictment of bad parenting to our partner?
Just listen to this podcast! Dr BraVada Garrett-Akinsanya’s beautiful yet practical take on this topic was music to my ears! She leaves us with this thought:

You are connected to me. I value you. I love you. I respect you. And because I hold you in such high esteem, I will do what I can to maximize your joy and minimize your pain. That is what relationships are about, that is intimacy and that is what it means to show true egalitarian support. We can do it. It just takes work.
This podcast (Along with Anne Marie Slaughter’s book “Unfinished Business”) are indispensable tools in finding parity in our homes. Have a listen to the podcast!

  •   sarahsophief @jessicavalenti Every family should listen. I'm living for it! Thank you 3d
  •   sarahgwillis I'm lucky my husband is a feminist. He's working very hard to be the best dad possible for our daughter. Amazingly, he gets a lot of "oh that's too bad" from guys when they here we have a daughter, which is the most WTF crap ever. His response is always "no, it's great! I'm feel like I'm part of the future!" 3d

sarahsophief I'm reposting this quote because I love it so damn much. Happy Weekend! "I noticed that when my children reached the age of about twelve, the balance of power shifted from me to them. I have sometimes felt myself in the quandary of a chicken who has hatched duck eggs: my children took to the water, I remained on the riverbank. But I cherish my own independence too much to begrudge them theirs. I do better on the bank cheering them on. If I keep a respectful distance, they welcome me into their lives almost as wholeheartedly as I welcomed them into mine when they were born. “Almost” because even the most affectionate adult children maintain with their parents a healthy reservation that marks the boundary of their autonomy.

I am more impressed by what my children have taught me than by what I may have taught them. The physical purpose of reproduction is, obviously, the continuation and renewal of genetic continuity, human survival. Its psychological purpose seems to me to be a particularly poignant kind of mutual learning and, matters being equal, ineffable comfort."- Anne Truitt #stayhuman

sarahsophief From The Frontlines Of The War On Women Today:
In a clearly unconstitutional move
Oklahoma state legislature passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony. As in: Doctors who are just doing their jobs by performing the safe, legal procedure could face up to three years in prison. The AP reports that “the bill also would restrict any physician who performs an abortion from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in Oklahoma.” The only exception to the legislation is if the mother’s life is at risk.

sarahsophief OUR FIRST BREAKING THROUGH EVENT HAPPENED! It was such an incredible night. Somehow 100 people (including kids and babies!) felt intimate, and the conversation was smart, funny, wise, challenging--a lot of BERNIE peeps and a lot of HRC peeps came together and discussed how sexism has shaped this election and it was PEACEFUL, RESPECTFUL, and POSITIVE. Cause that's how WE WOMEN DO, Okay?

But in all seriousness: I believe women can, must and will heal this rift. Together, we can create the UNITY that beats Trump. And I felt the hope stir in my heart last night. I left energized, inspired, and ready to rumble!
So many thanks to: Paul M. Bernon Kevin Powell, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Jess McIntosh, Zerlina Maxwell, Sally Kohn, Jamia Wilson, Shruti Ganguly, Lori Majewski, Ben O'Keefe, Olivia Wilde, Jemima Kirke, Moby, Stacey Bendet, Rachel Goldstein, Rachel Sklar, Cleo Wade, David Ambrose, Daron Murphy, Jill Greenberg, Robert Green and everyone who attended last night.
In Solidarity! Sarah Sophie, @lauradawnartnotwar, The Art Not War Team, @emilys_list & The Creative Council!

sarahsophief My Last Post For @emilys_list Mothers' Equal Pay Day:

Here is why I support EMILY's List and women who "Run Like A Girl": In an election year that is overrun with sexist hyperbole and toxic masculinity on the GOP side, it’s time to get serious about addressing why 51 percent of the population has less than a fifth of the representation in Washington, D.C.

There are hundreds of women campaigning right now — I'm passionate about getting the word out and the vote out!
In 2016 we could see a record-breaking number of women elected to the Senate. There are nine eight pro-choice Democratic women running for Senate this year, most of whom have a good shot at election. Compare that to the supposedly watershed “Year of the Woman” in 1992, which only saw four women senators elected. And, this year,four three of the nine eight contenders are women of color, which is huge because only two women of color have ever, in history, been elected to the Senate. #runlikeagirl #stayhuman #mothersequalpayday #votingmatters
