Looking at that now, that took some FUCKING. BALLS. To get up in front of the entire music industry and be like, “You guys are assholes.” And it was so tough and so cool. And you know—it was coming from a sweet place. She was like, “Hey kids, don’t buy in.” Like, “Do you. Be you.” Now that I am in the music industry, I absolutely am like, you know what? That was a deeply courageous act.

The Virgin Suicides (1999)
"What we have here is a dreamer. Somebody out of touch with reality. When she jumped, she probably thought she’d fly."

I watched this movie with my Mom once, and she was all, “Yeah that was my life.”

[T]he “confidence gap” is not a personal defect as much as it is a reflection of a culture that gives women no reason to feel self-assured.

In girlhood, starkly-divided toy aisles teach us that engineering, electronics and science toys are for boys, that the futures for which we should be preparing are those of the Barbie Dream House variety. Adolescent girls - especially girls of color - are given less teacher attention in the classroom than their male peers. A full 56% of female students report being sexually harassed. Sexual assault on college campuses is rampant and goes largely unpunished, women can barely walk down the street without fear of harassment, and we make up the majority of American adults in poverty.

The truth is, if you’re not insecure, you’re not paying attention. Women’s lack of confidence could actually just be a keen understanding of just how little American society values them.

— From my first piece at the Guardian, The female ‘confidence gap’ is a sham (via jessicavalenti)
