Notes To My Future Daughter


 

Naturopath and owner of The Staple Store Catie Gett, raised almost $10,000 through crowdfunding after only six Instagram posts to self publish ‘Notes To My Future Daughter’.

Catie’s notes are powerful, compelling and honest. She writes with a beautiful sense of empathy for all women.

These are notes for women to read to their daughters, sisters and most importantly themselves.  Woven through striking art work these notes will move you: you'll laugh, cry and most importantly, you'll feel hopeful for a beautiful and safe future for our daughters.

(passage from the book)

By the time an intelligent, clever woman leaves her home, she has been exposed to over 165 hundred chemicals.  She has washed in them, cleaned with them, applied them, eaten them, drunk them, sprayed them on and breathed them in. These chemicals are being marketed to very clever, highly educated and extremely discerning women and it’s working.  And it’s working because she doesn’t like patchouli, or camping, or chakra cleanses or nonsense. And when I tell her that antiperspirants contain chemicals toxic to females, it’s not the first time she’s heard it, it’s also not going to be the second time she chooses to ignore it.  So how do I get her to notice, to pay attention and to be aware?  To become educated and informed about her health, despite its counter culture tones?  How do I make her understand that just because something is not widely accepted, that it is in fact scientifically validated and that this lack of education is harmful?  Very recently I figured out how.  It’s simple, you write it for her daughter, then she will listen because she was born to protect her.

Your Favourite Note


I want to know what your favourite note is. I want to know why your heart felt this one.

This is my favourite part of the project so far: I get to hear the stories of women. I love women's stories, I love the way they express themselves, the way they are safe in vunerability, the way they  connect with other women to help them, I love how they make me laugh.

If there is anything we've learnt from 2018 so far, it's that women's voices are being heard. I wanted to expand this book into a community project. Giving women (and men) a portal to share their stories with someone or with everyone. A platform for our stories to be heard and counted.

I love you X Catie
