We can do it: restyle
I totally agree, lots of girls lose their femininity because they are afraid to use them. They think they appear less strong, less confident or just plain dumb. I think it is our biggest weapon. So embrace!

Addition to this: The image in question was created by Brazilian artist Will Murai, to accompany an article about ‘the end of feminism’ called ‘What do they Want?’ in the men’s magazine ‘Alfa.’
The artist’s statement says:
“This is an illustration I made for Alfa Magazine. This article talks about the end of feminism. The idea was to make the famous feminism symbol ‘Rosie The Riveter’ a ladie who is giving up on her duties and trying to look sexy again.”
I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.
