Since the dawn of civilization, society has created and perpetuated a false dichotomy where women's complex and versatile natures are compartmentalized into simple one-dimensional boxes. We are deemed to be either The Virgin Mary or Mary Magdeline. The librarian or the stripper. Tough or beautiful. But rarely are we viewed as both.
The truth is we are all both; we are all of these things. Yet subtle and subliminal societal messaging has told women that they can't have it all; they can't be it all, and sadly, many of us believe it. But it's simply not true.
Women's fitness line, Curves N Combatboots, is inspiring Servicewomen everywhere to share images of themselves both in and out of uniform to show the world just how bold and beautiful they truly are. These strong and beautiful women have dedicated their lives to being of service to our country.
They are fighting our wars, putting out our fires, and catching our bad guys. They are students, mothers, soldiers, sailors, police officers and firefighters, all while being super smart, strong as hell, and smoking hot. They have it all. They do it all. And they look frickin' amazing while doing it.
These 20 Military and Servicewomen prove that women are fully capable of the fulfilling the same roles as men with only one exception; we make it look good.
