There is one more principle left in the 10 principles of intuitive eating but I wanted to take a break from your regularly scheduled programming because this lovely Sunday is:
International Women's Day
I just want to do something special for all the ladies in the world. In fact, it's something that I'm starting for the next set of 10 blog posts (although issues of gender do not have to be cisgender specific; AKA boys, stay tuned!)
The UN calls this day, "the time to uphold women's achievements, recognize challenges, and focus greater attention on women's right and gender equality to mobilize all people to do their part."
Even though it's 2015, women still make less money than men in the United States. Despite strides in education, men still dominate higher paying fields including math and science.
Dieting culture affects women and girls the WORST. Who would we, as women, be if we didn't spend time working on our bodies and our beauty? What would we, as women, spend our money on if we didn't have to buy SoulCycle to feel good about ourselves?
I run my business for you ladies. I believe more women should stop fixating on getting lean so they can start leaning in.
Share this blog post with your ladies today. Let's get that gender equality.
