Just having a little feminism moment. I think it's ridiculous that we were raised to change ourselves by others standards. Like we have to shave, or it's gross and unhygienic, or that if we show cleavage it makes us a "slut" and practically "begs for rape". It isn't about being greater than men, it's about being treated equally.
Women do NOT need to become male'like in order to be treated equally. Embrace your femininity as your strength if it is how you feel! If women must become like men in order to be seen as equal, then in essence, the men have won again. They have stripped us of who we are and converted us into "them". POWER in the FEMININE!
Emma Goldman is definitely a huge driving force behind this screenplay. One of history's strongest and most complex women. I seriously heart her and her spirit continues to live on in every revolutionary's soul.
Amen! I'm a femmi gardening, cooking, mild, person, but I am a person, and my worth is defined by my goals and my values alone. Feminism doesn't mean being anything in particular, just freedom to be yourself, and not have your worth defined by others.
'Rather than fighting for every woman’s right to feel beautiful, I would like to see the return of a kind of feminism that tells women and girls everywhere that maybe it’s all right not to be pretty and perfectly well behaved.That maybe women who are plain, or large, or old, or differently abled, or who simply don’t give a damn what they look like because they’re too busy saving the world or rearranging their sock drawer, have as much right to take up space as anyone else.
We do not need this republican future for our daughters, vote. The dynamic reflects the painstaking efforts among Republicans to avoid the mistakes of 2012. This time around, there aren't any candidates talking about "legitimate rape" or "binders full of women." And the GOP put up strong female candidates in states like Iowa and Michigan, making it harder for Democrats to attack them as opposed to the interests of women.
