Women Empowerment:跟女性前輩上的6堂課!

21世紀的女性面對很多迷思,有聲音告訴我們應該積極進取,盡量在別人面前表演自己;同時,另一把聲音則告訴我們千萬不要事事「博出位」,以免惹來身邊男性討厭。究竟現今的女性應該如何自處呢?今天,讓我們跟6位女性前輩上課,學習如何做女人。

On Free Will

英國女作家勃朗特早已在19世紀(當時女性還未有投票權)的時候,已經告訴大家別小看女性!女性可是一個會思考、會說話、會行動的個體,女性並不屬於任何人!

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

On Diligence

美國女權作家里奇告訴我們,別懶惰,任何成功背後都必須要下苦功。過程是辛苦的,妳會很想「走捷徑」,很想依賴別人,但相信自己的能力吧,妳一定能夠做到!

Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work.

― Adrienne Rich

On Self-Agency

被視為女權主義者的鼻祖之一的18世紀英國女作家兼哲學家瑪莉·沃斯通克拉夫特提醒我們千萬不要將Feminism等同於Man-hating,因為女權主義根本就不是父權主義的極端。

I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.

― Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

On Global Responsibility

Hf女性兩樣都會追求,但女權劇作家恩斯勒提醒我們不要將過多的注意力放在自己身上。世界上,還有更多值得我們去關注和改變的事情呢!

Stop fixing your bodies and start fixing the world!

—Eve Ensler

On Free Thinking

這句出自 Coco Chanel的說話,相信沒有人比她說出來更具說服力。 儘管當時客觀環境是對女性多麼不利,Chanel從來都沒有放棄過實現自己的想法,多虧她我們才能從昔日約束性的時裝中解放出來呢。

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

― Coco Chanel

On Motivation

記住,妳要征服的從來不是男人,也不是另一個女人,而是妳自己。讓我們時刻可以像詩人兼作家C. JoyBell C. 一樣,檢視自己做事的動機,看看有沒有發現不應該存在的嫉妒和報復。

Never do a single thing in the anticipation to prove something to someone who has hurt you. If someone has hurt or offended you (whoever that person may be), never perform anything or strive for anything in your life with the mind of proving something to that someone/ to those people. May nothing that you do be done with any thought of them in mind. There is nothing that needs to be proven.

― C. JoyBell C.
