Nasty Woman Pussy Grabs Back – Protest Cakes

I was 20 when I found the official word feminism. I realized I had been a feminist all my life. I was in my second year of university, and I enrolled in a Women’s Studies class, along with two of my close friends. My eyes were opened. At first, my feminism was one of anger – I was determined to be right and considered it my job to “change the outlooks” of my sisters, my mother. I remember getting my mom a Christmas present – ¬†Feminism In Our Time, an overview book. My hair became pixie-cut short. I came home from college no longer wearing a bra. I remember my mom joining me in a Take Back The Night march. She has always supported me, quietly, though perhaps then she knew this was a part of growing up – to question our surroundings, to fight what we feel is unjust. Now, two decades later, I’ve settled into my own kind of feminism, which is – just being me. Now I know a little better – feminism comes in so many forms. Now, I am a mother and a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. A baker of cakes! Raising my son to be respectful, thoughtful, open and independent – I hope he turns out like my husband – a strong, kind, compassionate and loving man, a feminist himself. My activism is a different kind than it used to be, yet I see its value and power – it’s informed by my past, present and hope for the future. My voice is attached to this blog and to my work, to my cakes. Stand together. Do not stay silent or be complacent. My form of protest may be audibly more quiet but no less strong. Pussy grabs back.¬†xo Lyndsay¬†

    There’s still a lot of fighting to do. It’s nice to know it can be a sweet battle…

    Omg, high five on the rockin’ title. Total click bait for me. ha,ha.
    I love feminism and for some it can be an angry road and some are just silent supporters. I like you embrace feminism these days as just being myself. I loved how you expressed this sentiment and found it easy to relate.
    I say, “if you are a fighter, FIGHT” all the better if like you, you do it with cake.
    Cheers and thanks,

    I have two boys and I’m raising them to good little humans who I hope will be feminists as well.
    My feminism is a quiet one. I don’t attend protests but I don’t put up with sexist bullshit when it is in my face. We can all do our part. I would happily serve a ‘nasty woman’ cake and everyone would enjoy it. :)

    These are amazing! I think it’s so important for anyone with a voice- loud or quiet- to stand up for what’s right and fair however they can.
