Girls, Take Yourself Seriously

My Dear Girls-

Take yourselves seriously. Work hard for the respect of others. As far as you are concerned carry yourself in a manner that communicates how much you respect yourself. Other's will believe you. And if they don't, the joke's on them. Embrace your beauty but hesitate before using your sexuality to gain advancement - in the long run it only deteriorates people's opinion of you. It deteriorates their opinion of all of us. Hold yourself with unmistakable dignity. Speak clearly with assertiveness. Ditch any passive aggressiveness as well as any unnecessary aggression. Gossip never. Talk about ideas more. And don't forget to love.

Also...this:

“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.” - Hillary Clinton
