I just watched the lunar eclipse with one of my best friends on a Scripps balcony. <3
"A woman who loves other women, sexually and/or non-sexually. Appreciates and prefers women’s culture, women’s emotional flexibility (values tears as the natural counterbalance to laughter), and women’s strength…A womanist also loves; Loves music. Loves dance. Loves the moon. Loves the spirit. Loves love and food and roundness. Loves struggle. Loves the folk. Loves herself. Regardless."
Alice Walker from In Search of Our Mother’s Garden, on the meaning of being a ‘womanist’
