Mookychick editor Magda Knight here. Happy International Women’s Day.
Yeah, so the thing is… this day is symbolically one of the most important dates in the Mookychick calendar. Which is great. But neither I nor Mookychick Central had the time to offer inspirational quotes or tweets or articles or share with the community at large or do anything in any feminist capacity whatsoever… because I and the other women who make up 90% of the staff in my day job office were WORKING OUR FUCKING NUTS OFF AND SCREWING THEM TO THE WALL BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT TOOK TO GET THE JOB DONE.
Same as we do EVERY DAY.
So unfortunately I didn’t get to participate in or appreciate IWD, even in a quick browse on Facebook or Twitter or whatever. So maybe I feel like I’ve let all our feminist Mooks down but utterly failing to put across any inspirational message whatsoever.
The only thing I did today was work really hard, same as all the other women around me. So, this year, IWD is a nod to the women in our office. Great bosses, awesome soldiers. To any women out there who work their guts out with everything on the line, here’s Bulletproof by A3. Ladies, this one’s for you.
Hi, mooky, darling. I'm poisonapple on the forums. I'm excited about this tumblr you've got here. Most of this ask is to say hello and welcome and thank you for everything you've ever done. I've been following the website for three years and you've helped me feel like less of a freak and given me hope in humanity as well as hope for myself. I've been inspired to travel and try to pursue my interest in arts as well as helping people. XO, Tay
Hello, lovely. It’s really nice to see forum mooks here, it makes the kingdom we’ve created together feel solid and real. Three years - wow. It’s been that long? You’re a veteran…! xx
asdfghjkl I'm so happy your on Tumblr I love your website so much! I use it to educate my friends sometimes ^_^
SERIOUSLY? That’s great. So glad we’ve been deemed worth of being an education resource! Kind of makes up for so many mooks telling us Mookychick.co.uk can’t be accessed in schools :) Thank you, lovely xx
