"For me, being a women means being soft. I don't mean on a surface level - I mean emotionally. I think that it's important as a women to be "soft" and care about the world and each other. I think there's more importance in standing up for yourself and your beliefs. I'm not saying that women can't or shouldn't do that. I think that lately women are so quick to disown their emotions and be a 'tough bitch,' but I think being soft is being tough. I think that as a woman, being soft means to be passionate and caring about the world and the way we move within the world. It's being truly mindful about yourself and understanding others. It's allowing ourselves to fall in love with the way the world spins. To me, being a woman, being soft, means to love freely."
