If you have done a cursory analysis of history …
Or religion …
Or politics …
Over the last few thousands of years you would know that women (along with minorities and those under represented) have been treated as “less than”.
As property. As a thing. As inhuman.
Maybe you don’t feel repressed or oppressed or underrepresented.
Good for you! You’re lucky.
and FUCK YOU
for not caring about that.
Feminism is not about victimization; it is not the belittlement or emasculation of men.
Feminism is about all people of any genders being EQUALS in life, in choice, in will, in power, in ownership.
This has not, for the majority of history, been the case.
THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR MANY WOMEN IN MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD TODAY.
Did you hear me?
And it is your responsibility
as a woman
as a feminist
As A Human Being
As a PERSON who believes in equal rights for all human beings to stand together to ensure the rights of other people.
Rights that we mostly take for granted.
You can help. you can make this better.
But first you have to recognize that this is an issue. In your neighborhood. In your city. In your state. In your country. In your world.
It is an issue.
Until women can feel free being in public without the fear being raped. Until 11 year old girls aren’t sold for marriage. Until women don’t have to cover their faces without the threat of eternal damnation. Female castrations isn’t a cultural normality.
Feminism is for everyone
I’ve never “needed” alone time.
I don’t miss it.
I don’t crave it.
But now that I have it….
IT IS BEAUTIFUL
