What the Fuck is Feminism actually?

Well according to Wikipedia, this is what feminism is:

“Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to those for men.”

 

It’s the belief that BOTH (and I stress both )women and men should have equal rights and opportunities.

 

What it’s not:

 

It’s not a cult.

It’s not some kind of extreme ideology. Media loves to sensationalise shit and pick out the handful of extremists.

It’s not hating men or demonising them.

It’s not being a damsel in distress and being a victim.

It’s not about saying no to being feminine or having kids.

 

It’s about society not perceiving us as less than for being women. About having control over our own bodies and reproductive system. About having the same career opportunities as men.

 

According to Bustle.com : ”Only 23 percent of women and 16 percent of men even subscribe to feminism? Despite the fact that a majority 82 percent of both genders say they do believe that men and women should be social, political, and economic equals. “

 

SO are you a feminist or not?
