Fuck the Patriarchy — it’s such a statement of protest. It’s a fed up, I am done, fuck this shit kind of statement. But as 2019 is right around the corner, it feels more like an anthem. It feels like the cadence leading us into a New Year. It’s become our marching orders, and we are armed and ready. Never with weapons or violence, but knowledge, strategy and without fear.

There is corruption everywhere, and women decided that if they can’t change it from the top, they were going to start at the bottom and work their way up. What better way to change what is wrong than to tear away at it slowly, one by one, every bit of corruption from the ground up? As you tear it down, you also slowly rebuild it stronger and better.

But Fuck the Patriarchy has trickled everywhere not just in our governmental system, but in our homes, in our work, and every crevice of our lives. Women are holding their sons, husbands, boyfriends, fathers, grandfathers, uncles and even their male friends accountable. They are reversing years of brainwashing.

Women are taking back their power. They are healing themselves. They are building their spiritual and monetary wealth, and they are not leaving their sisters behind. Every single woman rising is turning around and giving her soul sister a hand and a leg up. She is tired of the bullshit, and she is also tired of seeing her fellow sister deal with the same crap every day. So she has taken a stance and not letting anyone of her sisters fall.

And as you look at the tears in her eyes and the sweat rolling down her face, it’s not a sign of defeat or failure. It’s a sign of the long hours she is putting in. It is a sign of the hard work she is committed to doing. It is a release. And with every release, she restores and balances her energetic field. It’s her armor, and it is unpenetrable.

So when you hear — fuck the patriarchy it’s no longer a statement of protest, but it is a revolution rising where women are taking back what is theirs. They are taking back their worth, their honor, their respect, and their power.
