I need feminism because...
Women Rights, Sister, Feminist Get, Mother, Feminism Ii, Quote, Ncf Feminism, Being Hurt
I understand that sometimes empathy is the only thing that will remotely get through to extreme sexists. But in all honesty it baffles me that people, especially politicians, can't see women as PEOPLE. As PEOPLE that are being hurt and oppressed in virtually every country on earth. If they were men-just men- not your husband, son or father, would you feel the same way?
Just because I have family titles doesn't mean I'm not my own person. It means I don't exist in a vacuum. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and under all that I'm woman. My titles tell you part of who I am not everything about me.
I need feminism because I am a person who belongs to herself first before I am a daughter, sister, wife, or mother.
I am not YOUR sister, I am not YOUR mother, I am not YOUR wife. I am not YOUR girlfriend. I am MY own person.
I love being a wife, a sister, a daughter, and the best of all is mother. I do not need politicians to validate my existence. Being a woman is special, and we should teach our daughters to embrace themselves. This is a true disservice
I need feminism because... I must admit I do this too: refer to myself and other women as "Sister, daugher, mother, girldfriend". But sometimes it's the only way to make some people understand. Not saying she's not right, though.
Men are referred to as brothers, sons and husbands. I honestly don't get why women are so adamant about making a big deal out of certain things. Being a sister, daughter or wife doesn't always imply you are owned by someone. It can commend respect and be a title to be proud of if you let it be that. I'm all those things and I am a person. Feminists get a grip and realize titles don't always mean you're property and you as women are not the only ones who are given titles

Yeah, right! A feminist who wears a headscarf, which the Quran clearly describes as a symbol of male dominance over women and a signal to Muslim men intended to show that she's Muslim and therefore can't be raped (non Muslim women are fare game, though)! "Muslim feminist" is an oxymoron.
It's hard to believe that there are any radical Muslim feminists since all we seem to see in the media is the oppression and abuse of women in Muslim society (You GO Girl!)
It's hard to believe that there are any radical Muslim feminists since all we seem to see in the media is the oppression and abuse of women in Muslim society NOTE Sooo since radical Muslims are terrorist does this mean she is a terrorist.?? That is what our bias News Media tell us.

It's hard to believe that there are any radical Muslim feminists since all we seem to see in the media is the oppression and abuse of women in Muslim society [What country is this?] NOTE Well that is good to know but lets remember that all of them are not going to let you know until it is to late.
It's hard to believe that there are any radical Muslim feminists since all we seem to see in the media is the oppression and abuse of women in Muslim society- don't believe what the media says. Go out and find the truth for yourself! <3
'This is what a radical Muslim feminist looks like.' you go girl!!

Why is it that the image of a feminist is so often misconstrued? ------ because some feminists out there make it super confusing. It's "show off your body and no shame" but they also say "stop exposing yourself your repressing yourself!!" They contradict. There's a fine balance between equality and acting like a bitch and hiding behind the word "feminism"
THANK YOU, whoever created this. This is totally me, a lipstick loving, stiletto wearing, Goddess worshiping vocal supporter for equality on all levels, and I am raising my two little feminine feminists to do the same, and follow their passion, wherever it may lead.
Liking things deemed "girly" (like painting my nails, wearing scented lotions, cute furry animals, and baking vegan sweets) doesn't make me less of a feminist.
The thing is, i do believe in equal rights,equal pay etc for men and women. But i still find it sweet when guys do things like opening doors for you, and picking up the check.
Ohhhhh I love this. I wish everyone in the movement would realize that there's a place for everybody in it. We should work hard to embrace all of our sisters as we work on equality, as well as embracing our brothers as counterparts and allies while we continue to press on in search of progress, whatever that might be. #feminism
People shouldn't stereotype feminists into women who are gay or have manly aspects about them. Feminist are anyone who believes that women should be equal to men. Feminist can be any women.
You can be however you want to be, feminism is not about BEING a man, only having equal status to them
Before you say you believe in equality, but aren't a feminist, look up feminism. If you call feminists "feminazis" because boys think it's cute, then accept that you are choosing subordination & leave the real women alone.
A change in pinning habits! My proposal for fighting back against the #gender norms that are being inflicted on us through Pinterest, is simple. I believe we should become more aware of what we are pinning and the underlying message the content has. This does not mean you should stop pinning #feminine #images. Pin things you truly like and enjoy, but also use Pinterest as tool to engage and interact with the community.
The beauty of feminism is that it's strategic goals includes the betterment for men as well. That in my opinion is how many women think "naturally." Just as I argue there are biological factors to masculinity, I argue the same for feminism. Many women are soft and caring creatures. I say many because the world is not black and white, there are beautiful shades of gray.

Every time we liberate a woman we liberate a man. — Margaret Mead | liberation of women liberates both sexes
Actually I think every time we liberate one woman, we liberate many men and many women...
Margaret Mead quote: every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man.
liberating women and oppressed peoples helps liberate us all.
probs the smartest thing this women has ever said!
Nathan Jurgenson on Pinterest and Feminism - great starting point for this discussion.
Feminism Ism Ism Ism, Nathanjurgenson, Feminism Blog, Perspective, Comment, Pinterestfeminism, Feminism Interesting Post, Pinterest Feminism
Nathan Jurgenson, teachs sociology; usually theoretical and centered on identity. We can view Pinterest from “dominance feminist” and “difference feminist” perspectives to both highlight this major division within feminist theory as well as frame the debate about Pinterest itself.
"Take Wikipedia: 87% of its contributors are male... However, when discussing Wikipedia, it certainly is not the norm to go on and on about how male the site is. Instead, it is far more common for the site to be praised for its “neutral point of view.” ... Pinterest, on the other hand, is implicitly, and sometimes explicitly, dismissed as merely female." by nathanjurgenson
Pinterest and feminism blog post. The author offers analysis of the ways to approach it but doesn't give his own conclusion, which is nice, because then you can formulate your own. The main point was to solicit input/opinions/links to further reading in the comments, which many people did offer, so the comments are definitely worth reading through too. Good post.
I really loved this article and learned a lot. "It seems that Pinterest can be effectively used to illustrate at least these two points when teaching feminist theory: the Dominance/Difference divide and the Othering hypothesis. I hope that these perspectives also help us understand Pinterest and how the site is discussed in general."
Using Pinterest to teach feminism...interesting post and comments section.

Quotes, Caitlinmoran, Word Feminism, For Women, Book, Caitlin Moran, Things, Girl Power, Feminist
"What part of 'liberation for women' is not for you?" Caitlin Moran is awesome, and one of the things I miss most about British newspapers...
If you are a woman today, most likely you are a feminist whether you consider yourself one or not!!! (Caitlin Moran- "How To Be A Woman" Book Quote)
"How to determine you're a feminist: 1). Do you have a vagina? and 2). Do you want to be in control of it?" - Caitlin Moran
This quote is saying that today many women forgot what a feminist is. Feminism is what got the women many rights to do a lot of things such as the way they dress, vote, speak, work,etc. women should embrace the feminist in themselves.
Caitlin Moran-How To Be A Woman Book Quote I seriously wonder this all of the times especially when people act surprised to hear myself say I am a feminist. I mean, what woman does not believe in the equality between man and women?
"How to Be a Woman" - Caitlin Moran. The best book I have ever read hands down. Read it in 3 days.
Reclaiming the word feminism. Love Caitlin Moran

This photo brings up a valid point that people look at the word feminist and think being a feminist as a bad thing, but it isn't. It's a state of mind and way of life in which you desire equality between the sexes.
I learned the horrendous double standards that exist for boys and girls. I've argued with my parents about the word and why it should be choosen it over the homogenized word word some others choose "humanist". I'll never betray the women that have come before me or the women and girls still fighting. I'm a FEMINIST and I'm proud of it.
I've always been proud to say I'm a feminist from a very early age. From about 10 years old I learned the horrendous double standards that exist for boys and girls, men and women. I'll never betray the women that have come before me or the women and girls still fighting. I'm a FEMINIST and I'm proud to be.

In today's society feminism has a negative connotation attached to it. A feminist is not against men. A feminist wants equal political, economic, and social rights for all- women, LGBTQ, minorities, etc.
if you believe both men and women should be treated equally, you're a feminist.
#024 — 2014 01 24 — Feminism — I'm really grateful for feminism groups because without them, I'd never get pulled out of my relatively safe and comfortable existence and shown the harsh realities women have to face on a daily basis. Every time I hear women frankly talk about discrimination or worse things they've faced, I'm either shocked, saddened, or angered. It's a shame that so many of us are largely unaware of how hostile society is to women's self worth, sexuality, assertiveness, or rocking of the boat. I'm a feminist because there's no alternative when an empathetic human is presented with the struggles women face, whether systemic and subtle, outright and vulgar, or horrendously destructive -- Original pin description: The word feminist is currently a dirty word and a word people often do not like to use because of its negative connotation. This world has made it like that and it is something that has impacted feminists. The negativity is going to be hard to change but one day it will.

Pinterest = social commerce game changer. @Maggie Dunn #gamechanger
Between the 1890s and early 1900s, thousands of illustrations like this were produced and distributed around the United States and England, on postcards, in magazines and on public billboards. The message was that women’s rights were dangerous and letting women think for themselves could only end in a nightmarish society.

Sans mari, la femme n’existait pas réellement. Dés lors, il était facile de caricaturer la suffragette comme étant cette femme coquette et libertine dont personne ne voudrait jamais dans la vie. Elle finirait vieille et laide. Par conséquent, elle voudrait se venger par le droit de vote…
Wow... that they were that scared of Suffragettes back in the day, when womin were trying to get the right to vote...
"Origin and Development of a Suffragette. At 15 a little pet. At 20 a little coquette. At 40 not married yet! At 50 a suffragette." As the women’s suffrage movement gained momentum in the early 20th century, the picture postcard industry was utilised to denigrate women fighting for the vote.

I thought that this picture was awesome in showing how feminism affects men as well as females. With the point of feminism being to destruct the inequality of sexes, I think it's a very valid point to consider where men have been progression into typically female dominated professions and vice versa.
