I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.

THE COMMENTARY IS MAKING MY HEART SING

okay yes all that is true!
but they have the original Rosie hair up, no makeup, covered up and flexing is because they wanted Women working in factories which were pretty dangerous
hair could easily get caught in machines and rip your hair and skin off, could easily decapitate you, and if you worked with bombs the cordite would turn it yellow and make it dry
covered up because less skin could be discolored by the chemicals around them
makeup because you didn’t need that stuff when you were working —mind you it’s an old fashion ad
and she’s flexing showing she’s strong enough to go work in a factory just like the men of this time period
so yes while this is a wonderful modern take on Rosie, 
don’t denounce Rosie for not being feminine and strong

If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.

I am a 24 year old Australian woman… My family are Palestinian Christians living in Israel. It’s truly terrifying that media only shows you the perspective they want you to see. We are being conditioned to accept what we see and read in media is truth. It’s what the government wants us to believe. There are children dying

If only we knew !!!

Every day in Palestine, they are being arrested like criminals for defending what little land they have left. Being shot in the head for throwing rocks. We need to question how and why this is happening ? How are we letting this happen? Why are we allowing the Israeli government win ? Have we not learnt any thing ?

All I ask of you is to open your mind and educate yourselves !!!

Please watch at least these two videos !!

So today while I was on my way home I saw this guy stop to buy groceries at a shop. He was on his bike and as he parked it something fell from the bike. It was a toy in a small transparent bag. A little girl who was passing by saw what was going on and since she was closer to the toy she picked it…
