Some people say we don't need feminism anymore. (1) 1 in 4 women are STILL raped. (2) 87 out of 100 U.S. Senators are STILL men. (3) 5 million women STILL starve themselves to look "beautiful." (4) Women's health, freedom, safety, and reproductive rights are STILL threatened around the world.
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.
'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.
So true. I think about this every time a girl on Facebook argues with me that there is nothing wrong with calling girls sluts. Exactly what JennaMarbles needs to hear after her ridiculous slut-shaming video. Let's work together instead of holding up the patriarchy with the oppressors.
