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.
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!

I like her tattoo because it is in your face and I would hope a version of the same on me would send the message to anyone who views mine that feminism is not a dirty word but rather something to be proud of, something to fight for, and also for people to see a 'real live feminist' in person and perhaps break some stereotypes.
