    10+ female music artists inviting the Feminine to rise

    Women circles and so-called women’s (empowerment) work keep circling back to my attention. It doesn’t matter how hard I try to hide and stay small, the calling keeps coming up. The Feminine is rising and asks of me to rise with her. And what better way to rise than to let yourself being carried by…

    An honest review of 5+ years of bleeding in reusable products

    I am so happy to see that reusable menstrual products are increasingly being celebrated! More and more good-hearted companies produce and sell menstruation cups, reusable period pads and period panties. I personally have been using these for many years. As I have noticed that reviews often come too soon, here I share my experiences from…

    The Goddess at Boom Festival 2018

    Boom Festival 2018 was absolutely beautiful. It took place back in the summer, and I have been wanting to share one glorious thing. You’re already seeing her: this gigantic and beautiful artwork of the Goddess. She was situated right next to the main stage. She’s made out of wood, and her heart is filled with…

  • Female Power Friday #03

    Evolution! From this edition onward this rubric is about female power instead of female empowerment. This (Dutch) One World article explains that the word ’empowerment’ implies that the person ‘to be empowered’ does not already have power (of their own). I am not sure to which extent the use of this word is problematic, however,…

  • Female Empowerment Friday #02

    Look who’s back?! This rubric is fun and needed. Noteworthy is that it came to me as Feminist Friday, but I figured that the word feminism scares some people off. So using that word would require a little disclaimer – which I ended up adding to Edition #01¬†anyway, but without the -ism. I write and…

  • Female Empowerment Friday

    I am very passionate about female empowerment. I want all humans to be empowered, and I think that equality both contributes to that and comes as a result of it: empowerment brings equality and equality brings empowerment, ultimately. Because of the many gender-related issues I experience, I cheer of joy every time I find anything…

    Must-see documentary: The Goddess Project

    I urge you to go see The Goddess Project, if you haven’t seen it yet. I am tremendously positive and enthusiastic about it and I know why. The movie is a compilation of the most powerful pieces of conversation the film makers had with over 100 women in the US. I am so happy this…

    The Yoniverse

    The yoni is everywhere! This image is a picture of a tree, a wooden door. I totally love it. I see that it resembles female sexuality and spirituality beautifully.

  • The Feminine uncovered

    Something really powerful is happening: women all over the world are empowering themselves and others through reconnecting with the feminine. It appears that for way too long we have been living in societies dominated by the masculine. Masculinity is generally regarded as more powerful than femininity and its power has brought us to where we…

  • The advantages of wearing soft bras

    The advantages of wearing soft bras

    Earlier I already wrote about body image and self-love and how clothing can play a role in connecting to yourself and others. I believe that if we could value our appearances as less important, we would be able to connect more deeply with ourselves and one another. In this earlier post I mentioned simple clothing,…
