About

 A writer, artist, mother, lover, friend and feminist

    I started this blog as the beginning of a union to support, protect and empower women to feel good within our own skin, within our own sexuality and sensuality, and within our relationships.

    Radical Change – A Feminist Blog is a platform for our voice to be heard and to know we are not alone in our desire for a world and relationships free from porn culture and sexism.

  This is a positive mission for healthier self image and relationships, and healthier public images of women. Here we will be heard and valued. Here we can uplift and guide each other. Here we have a voice.

Full of Feminist and Goddess inspired t-shirts and other goodies 🙂

With love and blessings, Lily Munroe

  1. Just found your blog .. great stuff. Coming back later to watch the videos on your last post and explore your blog more. I have a couple of posts that relate to this subject too if you are are interested as well as a large (and disturbing) gallery of images too!

    🙂

    1. Hi there, so glad you found my blog so I could find yours 🙂 I had a quick look too and will check out more later today, great stuff also .It is the time for change in our societies; for respect, decency and integrity, and together us women can support eachother, raise awareness and make a difference, many blessings to you, Lily

  2. Your blog is amazing!! thank you for all your work! I have thought of the same issues many times before and often felt I was alone concerning them, since just as you have pointed out yourself, for everyone porn seems so normal!….glad I am not the only one who disagrees! 🙂

    1. Hi Roxi, thanks so much, there was a time when i felt very alone on this issue too, but we are not alone. There are many women who feel this way and some good men too. we can’t be silenced by the fear of speaking up anymore. I’ve come to the conclusion that anyone who is annoyed or offended by my speaking up for my dignity and real sexuality, and that of womankind, and therefore humanity as a whole, are not worthy of being in my life. The special, sincere people value my voice, my integrity and the healing i am trying to promote for real womens sexuality everywhere.
      And i love your blog too, very sweet and inspiring. Seems we are both embarking on a healing mission for women and men alike.
      Lovely to meet you in the ether 🙂 if you have time, check out ‘I’m a woman too’ by Ben Lee on youtube. The good men are standing up, bravo 🙂

      1. Wonderful! so glad we found each other!! 🙂 in high school and colleg, us, the girls, we used to say this to each other, to encourage ourselves, to keep trying to achive our goals and reach higher:
        POWER PUFF FOREVER!! :))
        Everyone would laugh but we knew what it meant! there is great strenghth in women! 😉 and it is time we start taking it back and asserting ourselves not (just) through our sexuality, but mostly through our herats and specific attributes!

  3. Very nice work! I’m impressed with your passion and your knowledge on the subject. If I were still teaching, I would definitely be using your work as a reference. Keep it up!

  4. It is currently 12:17 am here in the US, and I must go to sleep because I have finals in the morning but I can’t wait to check out more of this blog, I would love to get some help on my other blog from you for sure! And am so glad you are following this blog, thank you so much.

    Heather.

    1. Hi Heather, thanks for your lovely words. It’s a great thing you are doing with your blog, giving your time to a supportive online space for girls and young women, so any support you need – I would love to help. Nice to meet you in the ether, blessings, Lily 🙂
      And best of luck with your finals

  5. Hi Lily Rose,

    Thanks for another like on my blog. Love your paintings and your quotes page. Hope to see more of both here. More power!

  6. i found your blog through stellamar, and am glad that i did. we need more voices that espouse a loving intimacy free from victimization and objectification. bodies, love, and sex are gorgeous–but what our culture turns it into is demeaning to say the least. your painting is gorgeous! thank you for putting this out there…i look forward to reading more of your work!

    1. Hi, so nice to find you too, your writing is beautiful, a true conjurer of images through words. And thank you for lovely comments on my blog. Bodies love and sex are gorgeous but today’s porn culture is devoid of emotion, intimacy, connection and soul and really distorts the ‘image’ of women with detrimental effects to individuals and relationships. Here’s to reclaiming our value as women, and reclaiming real sexuality and intimate bonds. And the good news is there are good men standing beside us on this mission too. Many blessings to you and thanks again, Lily 🙂

      1. yes, i am glad your voice is out there. it is hard for women to know how to talk about this–as if we only have two choices: to be a prude or a ??? (i don’t even know what the right word is anymore…our language is even distorted around it all!) as soon as we like sex, we are labeled negatively as sluts and whores; if we speak out against our over-sexualized culture we are called prudes. i am glad you speak out for the the middle way; i will share your blog with everyone i know.
        and i am very glad that you like my poetry–i love writing about beauty, love, spirit, earth, and sexuality. thank you for coming by!

      2. Thank you, and you are so right! There is a healthy middle ground, for we are all sexual beings and it is something really special to enjoy and revel in as a part of our human experience. And you are right that this patriarchal society only seems to give us and label us with two extreme opposites, another form of oppressing us and keeping us quiet. but armed with information and support of others we can find our place and our voice. Thank you so much for your lovely inspiring thoughts on my blog and for sharing it with other women. I look forward to reading more of your writing too, many blessings, Lily

    1. Thank you so much dear-heart, This is exactly why I started this blog – “Sometimes it’s tough to be a woman and a feminist. Blogs like these make it easier.” Hearing back from women like you really warms my heart. We really need information, solutions and support, to know what we feel in our hearts is real, we are not alone and we don’t have to live under this patriarchal definition of women or that we should have to adhere to it and accept it in our society. We can rediscover our own beauty and sexualites in healthy positive ways without pornifying ourselves and not settle for less than the love of a good man who values us. And we can speak up. We can face fierce opposition sometimes from people in our lives when we find the courage to speak up (you know, being labelled prudes etc) and for me, there were times when i couldn’t give facts for why i felt the way i did on certain things, so I hit the books and the web and knew if I was searching for these answers, other women must be too, hence the blog. So it really does warm my heart, sometimes even to happy tears, when I see women searching for answers like me and finding them here. And I love the sentiment of ‘you are my sunshine’. Blessings to you x

  7. A feminist blog…perfect. I took a Women Studies course in high school, and it changed my mind about women. I learned so much and I have definitely become a supporter of all things women 🙂 I am excited to read the rest of your posts, your about me section is inspiring and engaging! Thanks for showing people that women are more than a body and instead are a human being 🙂

    Go women 🙂

    1. Hi Madi, thanks so much for your lovely comment, you’re post on respect was great and I look forward to reading more from you too. Viva the respect, value and dignity of women. Together, as women and good men, we are making a positive difference in our world, it is up to us, and we won’t be silenced anymore. Blessings to you, Lily 🙂
