fem·i·nism; the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Feminism teaches that women who have a lot of sex are not dirty, unworthy of respect or worthless. Feminism teaches that a woman’s body is her own damn business.

Feminism is a good reminder that a woman does not have to be like a man to be equal. The fight for equality is so that we can shake hands and there are no double standards.

Feminism is for everyone; men, women, both…. A huge part of being a feminist is giving other woman the ability to make choices that you wouldn’t necessarily make yourself.

I think Emma Watson, the UN women goodwill ambassador, said it best, “If not me, who? If not now, when?” I started my school’s Women’s Outreach Association as an intern and then later became an office for one  semester and now I have felt a personal responsibility for helping spread feminism. I want to put my hands in planning events so that the issues with white feminism, gender double standards, domestic violence etc can continue to be subjects that are heard on campus and so that we can create a pathway towards change.
