i know i reblog this a lot but fuckin look at it
Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.
I’m sorry but women get shit done. In fact, not sorry.
One day that little girl will either kill us or rule us.
The first time I saw this a while back, I just thought “huh, cool.” But it really just hit me what immersion like this can really do during those developmental years. This little girl will have Parliamentary procedure in her bones. That’s crazy. And still very cool.
Hey, look what happens when people don’t make a big deal out if stuff like this. Guess what? A big deal does not get made. There would be a shitstorm if someone tried to do this in America. The mother in question would also be expected to either quit her job or find daycare.
One of my best friends took the time to warn her employer that she was pregnant and get them to agree to a set up that would be beneficial to both her and the company. After the baby came and it came time to make good, the company pulled out and said it was because it wasn’t fair to other people. She was gradually forced out of her job and my friend went from managing a successful store to having to endure a debate over whether they were going to pay her the top wage for a cashier.
I say this from experience and I have way more instances to back this up: The grocery store that rhymes with Raider Moe’s is a misogynist boys’ club that literally hates women.
When I was younger I thought that to be important I had to be special or different. I had to learn a fantastic skill or develop magical powers. I had to beat someone else in order to be first. And I just wish someone would have told me that no one is more or less important than I am. We’re all completely insignificant and totally important at the same time.
Anyway, it took me like 18 years and hundreds of books and TV shows to realize this. Which is great and all but unfortunately not everyone thinks this way. Which is weird.
Mercantile on Main! I wanted to buy everything and redecorate my apartment but I just bought this awesome sweater instead. #mercantileonmain #sweaters #thrifting #toocool
