“SHE WHO IS TO COME (⬅️swipe left for full length)
A woman–in so far as she beholdeth Her one Beloved's face;
A mother–with a great heart that enfoldeth The children of the Race;
A body, free and strong, with that high beauty That comes of perfect use, is built thereof;
A mind where Reason ruleth over Duty, And Justice reigns with Love;
A self-poised, royal soul, brave, wise and tender, No longer blind and dumb;
A Human Being, of an unknown splendor, Is she who is to come!” On Women’s Sufferage in the 1920’s
Editor: Mary Mark Ockerbloom
We have striven for many freedoms, the vote, military service, careers and equal pay, but I believe the message we as women bring is our heart to the game. The strong, just and loving heart is one that can unify versus divide mankind. To not give up faith in our humanity we must strive for goodness together. As I fight each day for the rights of the disenfranchised it strengthens me to remember our history and the burdens that brought us both closer and more divided than ever in today’s age...it is with an awaken and alert mind that we must strive to learn while we gain ground for justice requires wisdom and knowledge. So it is this humble thirst for knowledge that I seek daily so that I may serve humankind. ❤️❤️

my girl at @posewigs posted about inspiration & these ladies are such an inspiration to my new love for cosplay and taking things to the next level and beginning to make my own cosplay props // ft. @2playergame as golden Diana | @jenumicosplay as Rogue | @ladykitzcosplay as x-23 // #cosplaymagnolia
@saffity_chu gave me this idea for a theme this week - props! Starting off with my Kingdom Come Wonder Woman shield - it’s made from a metal snow sled we repainted silver, and we had the emblem printed as a giant decal (so all we had to do was peel and stick lol). Added a couple of leather straps to the inside for my arm and it was done.
Guess I should mention my spear too - it’s just s piece of pvc pipe and foam for the top, all painted gold. It broke a couple of years ago and I need to fix it, so I can get long overdue white backdrop shots of this costume.
I am so honoured to be able to share my story with other people. It's not any kind of great success story (not yet anyway) but a humble little story about self-confidence and resilience. But I am forever excited knowing this isn't where my story ends, it's merely where it begins and hopefully, in a year, I'll have more to say.
I was so humbled to be able to share my experiences while being surrounded by so many other inspirational women. Thank you so much @openmics_avi for inviting me❤
Like I said, the more you understand yourself, the more you understand the rest of the world and never forget that it all begins with you 💗 📷: @ushan_gunasekera .
