You don’t have to be pretty

You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.

  1. Hi Caterina-

    We were on a panel together today at Inc. It is interesting we both started as artists! I have read about you before and been very impressed. Best of luck with all your ventures and staying independent.
