style // still a nasty woman

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this post. The thing is that we had shot these photos on November 4, well before the votes were cast and tallied. I had planned to post these photos in celebration of her election, to show just how much I cared about electing a female president. I was that confident in the world and future that Hillary Clinton envisioned and inspired me to want so very badly.  And yet… here I sit, still in tears over the results, and so, so angry. There, I said it. My disappointment runs deep and I’m really struggling to shake it.

I find myself wanting to do so much more — march in DC, give as much as I possibly can to the organizations that I know will be gutted, hold my soul sisters close.

And I spend a lot of time worrying about the future, more so that ever before.

In terms of giving, I do urge you so much (so so so sooooo much) to use your money to have your voice heard. Put your money where your values are; it is so crucial right now as we are on the precipice. Here’s a short list of where I’ve given and why (there is an even longer list over on Jezebel):

  • Planned Parenthood — because my heart breaks for some 16 year old girl that I don’t even know in Texas, Indiana, Oklahoma who feels so stuck and trapped and totally without options for her future.
  • the ACLU — because our constitutional rights are in jeopardy in a big way.
  • She Should Run — because I don’t want girls to think that this is it, that they can’t be president but a misogynist, racist bigot can.
  • NextGen Climate Action — because as a climber and outdoor lover, I cannot and will not stand by as our precious forests, mountains, oceans, and land are depleted for the sake of political gain, money, and greed.
