society. *eyeroll* How about "people" can't we just be "people" ? Both of these girls are human beings. End of story. The patriarchal obsession with classification of women based on perceived chasity really needs to stop.
This depicts how society sees women today. And to be truthful, I think this is fairly accurate of most. It's very black and white in the way of virginity. So do virgins really have the power? Or is it the people that define what a virgin is?
Some people don't understand the truth in this, if you're not one you're the other. Honestly your personal life is nobody else's business.
They don't need to let you win. When you follow your own truth, you've already won. Women are women are women. We should not let definitions that mean nothing restrict us.
So true we send such a confusing message to our young women. Don't let your kids buy into the lies.
Women being seen as sexual objects through media must have an end put to it. Calling a woman a 'whore' for sleeping with men is not uncommon, even as a man can get away with the same things without a problem or comment made to them. Being a virgin is also unacceptable for a young woman in today's society as women are expected to be experienced at such young ages. Sexism will carry on as long as women are being judged based on their choice to be sexual or not, and their appearances.
This image was clearly created by someone with at least a minimal understanding of the way society treats women. We often see virgins set against "whores" in a compare/contrast situation. I dislike the fact that they used the word that they did in this image, when they just seem to be describing a woman with a sex life. Even with images like these that are attempting to uncover injustices, there are still ways that we let how we have been conditioned take control and influence what we say. - CO
Not a quote from a wise woman, but some wise words about women instead...

Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law.

Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law. Islamic Extreme and very dangerous there right now! Christians are being slaughtered. Yet the United States supports them and gives them Billions.
Notice his and her baby in her arms as he publicly beats her. Islam works like this, and it clearly says that muslims in countries like america are to do their job by acting friendly so that our hearts "will be softened" until it is too late.
OBAMA BYPASSED CONGRESS AND SENT 1.5 BILLION AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO THE TERRORIST GROUP THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law. America, WAKE UP!
Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law. We do not want this here in America, but this is their plan. Pray for our country.
This woman was trying to protect her baby from those disgusting pigs. Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law...
The real war on women. In April of 2012 Obama BYPASSED congress and sent 1.5 billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood. They say public beating of women are just fine and acceptable. What kind of president do we have?! Stop the Muslim Brotherhood. Stop Sharia law. Public beating of husband beating his wife and holding a baby. UNBELIEVABLE!
I really don't like posting violent photos. But if you are visiting my board, or viewing this from a re-pin, I ask you to really think about this. While Christians and Jews are being persecuted across the world, and now we know even by our own IRS, the poor women and children under Sharia Law are fully aware of the abuse that they are potentially subjected to every day. This insanity needs to stop. We have Muslims in the White House and as elected politicians across the U.S. Help stop this wrong

This post has given me a great respect to Facebook because a feminist saw a place CALLED Offensive humor, and reported it. As a women myself that post was in the right place and I bet that there are male jokes too (I'm not trying to offend all feminist only the crazy ones, use logic next time you try to pull something like this and maybe I'll giving you respect crazy feminist)
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." (Why we need feminism)
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." This should tell you how much Feminism is needed! Sick
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." I knew there was a good reason to site when people say, "why aren't you on facebook?"
wait, what? this is TERRIBLE! that post was OBVIOUSLY offensive! No more of this rape culture, PLEASE!
THIS is why we need feminism!! Facebook has proven time & time again that posts like this one perpetuating violence & rape are perfectly acceptable according to their guidelines......but post a picture of a woman breastfeeding feeding, a breast cancer survivor showing their scars etc and THAT is what's considered unworthy of being on Facebook. Seems the people deciding what is deemed acceptable on Facebook have a "sense of humor" when it comes to rape culture & violence against women.....
THIS is why we need feminism!! What the fuck Facebook!!!???
Facebook: We're ok with #Rape and #RapeCulture

I usually don't pin stuff like this, and I don't consider myself a feminist, but I'm so done with all the double standards and judging that is dolled out on women that men don't have to deal with half as much. (This comment shows that feminism is still a dirty word)

I usually don't pin stuff like this, and I don't consider myself a feminist, but I'm so done with all the double standards and judging that is dolled out on women that men don't have to deal with half as much. <<<<< what do you mean you don't consider yourself a feminist? If you believe im equality between men and women, then by definition you are a feminist regardless of backlash that feminism receives
Feminism is not about burning bras. It's not hatred for men or a try to imitate them. Feminism is being free to decide who I want to be and how to act. It's not a shame to demand respect.

I hate the word feminism. It implies that MEN are stifling women's equality. Let me tell you, all those comments in this cartoon...I've heard all of them from women throughout my whole life!! I've NEVER had a man say those things to my face (maybe stupid bitch once after I called my brother some bad stuff first. I'm not saying it's right but I was also provoking). Point is You can't fight women hate, with feminism. We need a gender neutral term for this day&age..call it THE RESPECT MOVEMENT
Feminism. Demand respect to make your life choices.

"If a woman is free to show her body, why should she not be free to cover it?" #feminism #religion #choice - islam
"If a woman is free to show her body, why should she not be free to cover it?" #feminism #religion #choice This demonstrates how just because we see someone wearing different clothing from us, such as a hijab, doenst mean we should assume the woman is being coerced into doing so. Sometimes, like in the video we saw in class, it is the choice of the woman.
"If a woman is free to show her body, why should she not be free to cover it?" True Islam gives women the power to choose. Islam is not oppressive. #feminism #religion #choice
"If a woman is free to show her body, why should she not be free to cover it?" #feminism #religion #choice I feel like it can't be emphasized enough that feminism is literally just letting women do WHATEVER THE FUCK THEY WANT!

"If a woman is free to show her body, why should she not be free to cover it?" #feminism #religion #choice - That is, as long as she's free to make that choice, not forced into either.
I had a classmate who was Muslim. Her family never forced her to dress a certain way, and she grew up wearing tank tops and shorts like other girls. In high school SHE decided to start dressing "modestly" and wearing a headscarf, because it made her feel FREE to force men to look at her face instead of her body. It's about CHOICE! //We should not assume that every woman who covers her body in accordance with her beliefs is oppressed. They are women just like us who deserve our support!

Stand up for what's right. Be strong when others least expect it. Fight battles worth fighting for. Live for equality. Most people who don't know a lot about feminism wouldn't classify themselves as a feminist, but if you think women are strong, independent, and just as worthy as men then you most definitely are a feminist.

This is a very true quote because girls are not public property and we want to fight back!
"Between the Steubenville trial, the horrible attacks against rape survivor and political analyst Zerlina Maxwell, and CNN's awful coverage of the Steubenville verdict--it's time we had a serious conversation about rape culture. Because Todd Akin didn't come up with "legitimate rape" all on his own."

"things won’t change until we start talking to our friends and colleagues about rape culture and start raising awareness about how dangerous it is."
Quoted: "Changing the culture which allows rape to occur at epidemic rates is an important step in ending sexual assault against women (and men). This startling graphic points out how hard we must work to end rape culture."
"If we were able to change the way rape was viewed in our society, we wouldn't have to keep asking ourselves when this epidemic is going to end." #womensequalityday #feminism #betterisnotenough this particular post means so much to me because I am building my future, my career, on the idea that I can help demolish rape culture and reduce the number of victims.
What "rape culture" means. The only thing sadder than sexual violence is that our society too readily blames it on the victims.
Rape Culture #feminism - Never hear men complain about this when they rant about how unfair the courts are to them with child custody. They're too busy believing misandry is a thing, because it's women who have power to make these decisions am I right?

[PREORDER] 'Feminism is the Radical Notion' Charity Tank Top Quote by Cheris Kramarae - Juliette Said
This T shirt is defining what feminism is because there is a lot of discussion that discredits feminism entirely, or describes it as something that it isn't. This puts feminism in simple terms that someone might be able to grasp better than what they might hear from the media. Even so, some feminists would disagree with this definition of feminism, and would say that it is much more.

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. Let's talk about that dirty F-word that people like to avoid: "feminism". But why? There's nothing wrong with being a feminist!

Quote, Truth, True, Things, Feminist, Dehumanise, Ability, Occupation Defines
Your ability to dehumanise a woman based on her appearance, behavior, or occupation defines YOUR character NOT hers..
True Feminism is understanding that regardless of if you choose to completely release your beauty to the world in acts of nudity or if you chose to completely cover yourself and leave the world to wonder, your are beautiful in your individuality.
Even if a person's character isn't like yours, that doesn't give you permission to treat them any differently >>> Your ability to dehumanize a woman based on her appearance, behavior, or occupation defines your character, not hers.
Don't judge a woman because she's fat. Don't judge a woman because she's skinny. Don't judge a woman for her sexual activity, sexual orientation, or lack thereof. Just. Stop. Judging. Us. Next time you see a woman and feel like dehumanising her, imagine she's a dude. Would you really do the same for a guy?
This is so true.. I'm a Feminist and proud

Inspiration, Quotes, Mindy And Forth, Confidence, Feminist, Girl Power, People
Mindy Kaling, and other amazingly successful, beautiful, confident, and inspirational women talk about true confidence.
I really like this Mindy Kaling quote because she says that people are surprised by her confidence. As if she is suppose to feel inferior and not amount to anything just because she is "not white, not skinny and a woman".
28 Most Iconic Feminist Moments of 2013 "I always get asked, 'Where do you get your confidence?' I think people are well meaning but it's pretty insulting. Because what it means to me is, 'You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You're not skinny, you're not white, you're a woman. Why on earth would you feel like you're worth anything?'"
This is a quote from the actress Mindy Kaling. She makes a pretty remarkable statement about our standards of beauty and how women are expected to get all of their "confidence" from their appearance. This quote also reminded me of our discussion in class about overt racism and sexism and how often seemingly harmless questions can have racist/sexist undertones.

"NO, it's NOT feminism that we need. What we need is Jesus, who taught that men and women are equal in His sight and that women should be protected and cherished. And we need men who believe that AND women who don't tear down men just because they're men." <<Give this girl ALL the awards.
This is so horribly true. Feminism is so important and I'm so happy that I'm surrounded by feminists.
"I wouldn't title myself a feminist, but that's horribly true" if you think it's so true person who commented this, I'm sorry to break it to you but your a feminist, end of story, stop being afraid of the title and start speaking up about equality.
This is bs. Are you kidding me? What, you're just gonna go with you, a female, are a victim just like that? You don't 'need feminism' you need to get some big girl pants and pull them up. MEN ARE NO THE ENEMY. Making that the idea is bs. This post is just wrong, they're making men beasts, when its ridiculous, I won't even get started how wrong that is, and ya know what?
