These white boards have come to promote positivity and feminism in a good way, give advice from woman to woman, pass on encouragement, strength and support to those who have expressed fears and worries, nerves, pains and hurts etc. It is a completely random but awesome way for those girls who can't talk to anyone to finally have a voice, be heard and hopefully get some help and for those girls who have many inspirational words and much wisdom to pass it down. Problems get asked and solutions given in return by many different opinions and voices of different cultures, faiths and experiences. Hurts get shared, common pains that girls face with love and life are expressed and acknowledged, self-esteem issues are discussed and reassurance given both spoke and unspoken. The ability to have your voice heard without prejudice or judgment is probably what gives most of the girls who have written the courage to do so.
I decided that I'd let my readers into this small space of a million words, thoughts, feelings, circumstances etc. So I hope you all enjoy the pictures, I apologize for their quality and clarity, it's hard taking pictures sideways squished in a stall and trying to avoid white glares and hoping they turn out well.
|This is what you see when you open the door to go into the stall|
|This is a front facing view of most of the white board|
|this is writing left over from the wall that was not painted before they put the whiteboard onto it. Yay For Mutual Love and Respect!|
|Powerful Words Indeed! Especially for an audience that always tends to forget to love themselves.|
|a power eyes with scrambles of words and sentences spouting everything from randomness, hope and support to politics and words of warning for personal health.|
|The best thing on the whole board!!! Someone wrote up a positivity Alphabet from A-L, other people filled it in with messages of hope and inspirational words of love, peace, strength etc. I filled in letters D, M & P!!|
|Someone else finished the alphabet from M-Z and more people filled in. So Wonderful Go Sisterhood! Go Woman power!!|
|Another view from the door...|
|Writing on the back wall above the toilet. The first thing you see, read clearly and acknowledge when you walk in. I guarantee it's left so many women with happiness in their hearts and smiles on their faces after being in there.|
I hope you comment on this post.. It's really important to me - when I use this washroom and frequent this stall, as I often do for it is in a common student area of the university, the little feminist in my head always runs around flailing her arms in joy and shouting happiness to the highest heights for woman power, peace, love, support, friendship, sisterhood and the common good of womankind!
