The Big Bang Theory: Mayim Bialik posts love letter to young women
Mayim Bialik has shared an inspiring love letter for young women in her latest vlog and honestly, we feel like we can now take the world by storm.
The actress, who played the infamous Amy in The Big Bang Theory, posted the motivational video to her YouTube channel and it’s so far been watched by over 44,000 people.
‘I’m giving a shoutout to all the amazing women changing the world today, so here it goes,’ Mayim began. ‘Hey, you know who you are, you amazing young women changing the world – and I love you.
‘And I love you even when I don’t always agree with you because I am your sister. I love you as a sister in this struggle against a world trying to understand who we are, what we need, what we don’t need, what we tolerate and what we expect.’
She continued: ‘You are politicians in bold lipstick preaching about the struggle of the working class.
‘You are students on campuses all over the world, fighting for your rights as evolving future teachers, scientists, doctors. You are mums, unafraid to share the details of your birth story, your breastfeeding stories and your post-partum depression.
‘You are activists, fighting for mental health protection for us all. You are on YouTube and on Instagram expressing yourselves, expressing your sexual selves, teaching women like me what it means to be confident in your sexuality.
‘You are transgender, you’re non-binary, queer, theys, thems, everywhere and anywhere being everything that you were meant to be.’
Mayim went on to admit that despite loving young women, she envies them because of their fearlessness, resilience, ownership, sexuality.
‘Why are these things so shocking to women of my generation?’ Mayim asked. ‘Well you see modern ladies, we didn’t have them the same way you do. We straddled the generation of women who often feared men and your generation.
‘Women of my generation were kind of figuring it out as we went. You actually feel entitled to being respected, like woah imagine that. It’s crazy and awesome.’
