Equality for all genders, it seems like it would be the standard now, but sadly it’s not. Women in the same job ferrild, with the same exsperience and credentials are STILL paid less. It even goes to the exstream of women’s genitals being mutilated for the sake of religion and shame.
Feminism, the belief in equality for all gender, has become a dirty word.
I’ve met a lot of different people who say that they are not feminist, & I always ask them one question: do believe that all genders are equal and deserve the same opportunities? If you answered yes, THEN YOU ARE A FEMINIST! Feminism, contrary to popular belief is for more than just women. We fight against sexism toward men as well! We just tend to focus more on women because the are generally oppressed more.
Today, on international women’s day I call on you to learn about women’s issues, and take back feminism! Let people know that it is not a dirty word.
