New York City: SHARYN

January 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Sharyn: 28, native of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, bartender, graphic design student, former punk. Isn’t sure what feminism means, “but do I support women’s rights, do I feel empowered? Definitely.”

“I come from a really traditional family…my mother’s family is from Israel and my father’s side, they’re all Moroccan. Since I was a child, it has been banged into my head that I am to speak quietly and not have too many strong opinions and what I should be really good at is learning how to clean the house and cook food and raise children…When I was little, and kids would go and play in the park, I wasn’t allowed to go, [my family] wanted me to stay home and mop the floors. I was the first one of my family born in the United States, and I remember thinking like, ‘That’s cool for you guys, but I’m American and I can do whatever I want.’ I remember being really young and being so angry about that.”
