so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.

SO MUCH NOT TRUE OMG i’ll say it again Bronte hated Austen and didn’t even read her work until forced to and then wrote many angry letters about Austen’s books and ffs re-creative writing is an entire literary genre that existed way WAY before what we think of fanfiction started and isn’t it more inspirational that MOST OF SHAKESPEARE’S PLAYS were recreative of other stories or retellings so why make up facts when better ones exist

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."]

I love these. The series of “Stop telling women to smile” portraits of women and statements of empowerment by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. Women are not here to smile and be pretty for you. My name is not baby. How do we get them up in LA? #tatyanafazlalizadeh #stoptellingwomentosmile
