Virginia Woolf memorably wrote:

To the men who have told me that I’m overreacting and “it’s the 21st century women are equal now”

- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.
i’m so in love with this. i can’t even. ah. my favourite feeling in the world is putting your head beneath the water and entering an entirely different place, so peaceful, so quiet. what i miss more than anything when i’m living away from the ocean is being able to duck under and leave all my worries on the surface.
