How be a #FeminineFeminist

How be a #FeminineFeminist

by Marlies Dekkers

I love cooking, I love heels – and boy, do I love cooking in my heels! (wearing preferably not much else…) Can I still be a feminist? Of course! Because ladies, that is the whole point of this Third Feminist wave: this time, WE CAN HAVE IT ALL!

We no longer have to burn our bras to make a point; we can be equal to men, while celebrating our femininity. We are lipstick-wearing CEO’s, professors who dress like pin-ups, mothers who behave like mistresses. We’re into both knitting and kickboxing. We’ll split the bill, but gentlemen, it’s okay if you hold the door open for us. (And while we walk by, why not smack our butt?)
Here is my mini-guide to being a #FeminineFeminist because man, is it good to be a woman!

  1. No to: burning bras Yes to: (super) push up bras http://bit.ly/1P1ngmS
  2. No to: vibrators you want to hide Yes to: vibrators you want to showcase (we’re loving this ‘coffee table sex toy’: http://bit.ly/1TO7X9A0
  3. No to: weight loss belts Yes to: the Gloria garter-belt http://bit.ly/1RsxmuS
  4. No to: photoshop (our hips are fine, thank you) Yes to: filters (viva Valencia!) Check our Instagram!
  5. No to: lip fillers Yes to: Dior’s Addict Lip Maximizer http://bit.ly/1QJfe7Y
  6. No to: ‘The Rules’ (‘How to capture the heart of mr Right’) Yes to: Lena Dunham’s ‘Not That Kind of Girl’ (‘A young woman tells you what she’s ‘learned’’)
  7. No to: sex scandals Yes to: TV series ‘Scandal’ (Olivia Pope is our ultimate feminine feminist crush)
  8. No to: body shaming other women Yes to: sharing sexy selfies with your girlfriends!
  9. No to: diet books Yes to: fabulous cook books. Currently on our kitchen shelf: http://amzn.to/1M8OHLI
  10. No to: cutting your hair Yes to: braiding your hair (one word: Lagertha)

For a television program I am competing with 8 other Dutch personalities to become THE “Maestro”. The last few weeks have been nerve wrecking; I found my new passion.

My week; an inside look

I never have a week with a same sort of agenda as the week before, or the week ahead. That’s because I sometimes live the life of four different people.
