Friday Quote – Feminism

November 5, 2010

I am really, really sick of hearing women who are studying for degrees, who voted in the General Election 6 months ago, who have their own bank accounts, who weren’t married off as soon as they hit puberty, who are on the pill and who enjoy making their own choices about their careers, bodies and futures, claiming that they “disagree with feminism”.

    This is one of my favorite quotes. I hate what comes to mind with the word “feminist” or that people feel like they have to follow up any statement indicating that women are equal to men with “I mean, I’m not a feminist or anything!” YES YOU ARE. The word has been turned into something it’s not by radicalists that I feel, often, miss the point. Feminism is not screaming in people’s faces, it’s not the belief that women are more than men, it’s not anything more than the simple, and not-so-radical belief, that women, are people.
