How to be a feminist with a ‘girl’ in your life
- by admin
‘I have a daughter.
I know what a girl is.
I don’t want her to have to go through a cycle of having to deal with it.’
That’s how Brandi Love describes how she feels about her daughter, daughter-in-law, sister and granddaughter.
And as she tells the ABC’s Victoria Jones, that’s how it should be.
“I have to have a certain amount of trust in the way they’re raised and I have to give them the confidence to trust that they’re going to be able to navigate that and be able make their own choices in life, without the pressures of the world,” she says.
Brandi Love speaks with Victoria Jones at the ABC studios in Melbourne on Thursday.
Ms Love has a five-year-old daughter, Chloe, and a five, six-year old daughter, Madison, and she says the family is not alone in feeling like they need to take a break from the pressures and expectations of modern life.
“So it’s just really important that they realise that you can’t be constantly worried about what’s going to happen next. “
You can’t expect things to change for the better. “

But while Brandi says she has always had a strong family, she admits she hasn’t always had the support that her daughter would have needed. “
We just have to be resilient, and we can’t just stop caring about other people’s needs.”
But while Brandi says she has always had a strong family, she admits she hasn’t always had the support that her daughter would have needed.
She says it started as a struggle to accept her daughter as she grew up.

At first, she was worried she was losing her daughter.
But now she feels confident enough to share her story.
“I think the thing that really changed for me was that she grew into her own identity and that it was her, her voice, that mattered most, and that was really important to me,” Brandi said.
Brandi and her family are all part of the same family.
The family is a mixture of friends and family, including her husband and daughter.
Ms Love says it’s a very happy and healthy family, but there are a few things that they’ve learned to deal, especially in the last few years.
One is that she and her husband are both full-time employees.
They also have a family, so Brandi can focus on being a mother.
It also helps that they have a strong bond with their daughter, Brandi.
In her book The Girls Who Make the World Go Round, Ms Love shares her advice for parents and friends when it comes to being supportive and loving with a child.
“Don’t ever make your child feel like they have to change anything.
If you want your child to be happy, you have to make sure that you make them feel happy,” she said.”
If you want them to be successful, you also have to ensure that you’re happy.”
It’s a message that she believes all parents should know.
