Jada Pinkett Smith keeps the controversy brewing, just weeks after she posted what seemed to be an “anti-Christianity” statement on her Facebook wall, the rock star and actress expressed herself on social media again, this time to chastise mean spirited women.
Check out her open letter to women around the world below …
“Mother. Woman. Freedom.
“A woman who is a mother does not have to lose connection to her body, her beauty, her sensuality, her intelligence, her purpose or her individuality in order to be a mother.
“BUT … if she decided to let it all go … that’s her choice as well because a woman, who is a mother, has the right to identify for HERSELF what BEING a woman and a MOTHER means to HER.
“What it means to be a woman … is subjective along with every other title she could possibly hold. So, when we, as women, band together, as a collective, to judge other women’s decisions on how they choose to live their lives, it makes me question if we women honestly believe more in freedom and equality for ourselves than the need to … fit in, play by the rules, be liked and accepted by those that govern the standards or having others satiate our need to be in control and to be … right. (We often use each other to simply be … right.)
“Woman is vast, and her essence is made of a hundred million things so we will always encounter, through other women, aspects of woman’s nature that will feel foreign to us. I would suggest, we get to know that essence which may be foreign to us before we knock it. It could be that very essence which we would have knocked that may show us how to be more of the beautiful creatures we are or … it may create an opportunity to extend ourselves as sisters to share our wisdom, revealing alternative paths to assist our woman friends to get to where they are going. But we, as women, must practice honoring the freedom of one another if we are asking the world to honor the freedoms of women as well.”
Kind of makes you want to start a women’s revolution … right? – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
