On why I’m a feminist

On why I’m a feminist

yes

– Because people still consider feminist a “dirty word”
– Because we need to get rid of the stereotypes that surround the extremes of feminism. Feminists support equality of ALL women, whether that means they want to be the CEO of a company, a sniper in the military, a teacher, or raise their children at home.
– Because women deserve equal representation in the media
Because women ARE equal to men in the workforce and they deserve to see that equality in their wages
– Because rape culture still exists
– Because both men and women still slut-shame
– Because this:

Feminism

– Because people still believe they can make decisions for other women & their bodies
– Because a women’s worth isn’t tied to her appearance
– Because I want to have a career & a family
– Because I want my two beautiful nieces and any future daughter(s) to be raised in a future of equality, acceptance, and encouragement no matter what they grow up and decide to become

– Because “When a man gives his opinion, he’s a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she’s a bitch.”

– Bette Davis
