It is known that gender roles are shifting in Canada and we are one of the leading countries in gender equality progression. Yet our personal lives are not the only thing following suit; our professional lives are being affected by the changing dynamic of maternity and paternity leave.

One of the greatest gifts a woman is blessed with is her sense of empathy. A woman can feel the yearn of others, the pain of others, and the stride of others.
I classify myself as a travelling woman - willing to see the world at any cost, even if that comes with a sinking heart. Travelling the world is eye opening because the level of empathy that is often attributed to women travels with you, regardless of where you are.
On my travels, I witness heartbreak, struggle, triumph and honest attempt - traits that I find in people who try to get by day by day. I also feel anger at those who control an impoverished society by ignoring the hardships of its people’s, for the benefit of its outer appearance.

The more I looked, the skimming turned into reading and understanding.Read More

Feminists have made it so that loving one’s self, and taking care of one’s self, rather than caring for others or seeking the approval of others, is revolutionary.Read More
