You can listen to this essay as audio here

  • Feel grateful for mere weeks of parental leave, when we should be receiving months and years
  • The idea that we must cut out the symbolic “avocado toast” or lattes if we truly want to be making more money, that it’s on us
  • The way we look sideways at ambitious women who’ve decided to abandon scraps
  • The funding or lack thereof that’s given to community resources, mental health, education
  • The constant messaging around how we should be grateful for everything we already have
  • The way in which we’re constantly discouraged for asking and advocating for more
