Feminism is defined as advocacy or support for women’s social, economic and political rights. The goal is equality with our male counterparts. This hardly seems radical. Feminism is not a dirty word.
Recently nations gathered at the United Nations to discuss issues concerning women. Issues like wage parity and control over our own health choices. I’m glad the world is coming together to address these things but, in a way, it’s sad to think that in 2014 this is even necessary.
Feminists do not want to villainize men, we just want to enjoy the rights that many males take for granted. We want to find our own way and make our own choices. We want equal pay, opportunity and respect.
We’re your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, friends and business partners. Why wouldn’t you support us?
