Plath was a smart, powerful woman plagued by her mental health. Reading her work takes me back to school.
Sometimes the weight of the world feels heavy. Sometimes, being strong in the fat community feels like a deed not just for me, but for every other fat girl fighting.
We must learn from the strong womyn before us. We must read their words, study their actions, watch their movies, and discuss their art. We must listen to the womyn, here and now, speaking out for womyn. We have to protect the smart, talented womyn fighting the weight of the world.
Protect all womyn. Support all womyn.
