Nike created an ad campaign called #Dreamcrazier - Just do it inspired by the treatment of female athletes who get emotional. I'm so tired of being told that I am "dramatic" because I express emotion. Not just by men, but by scared, compliant females who need a man to complete them. Even my own brother tries to diminish my expression of anger and call it "drama queen". So be it. I am embracing the crazy. I am embracing my feelings of anger at the amount of violence towards women and the fact that many people just look the other way. Im angry that people seem to be afraid of angry women. Or even if a woman simply has an angry response. People are afraid of women's anger. Ladies - our anger is our human right. It frees us from the overwhelming depression that ensues if we look the other way. The time has come for women to get up and use their voice, critical thinking, skill and talent to advocate for human rights for women.
