"Without us you wouldn't have any rights!" "Without you we wouldn't have to fight for them." [follow this link to find an extended preview and brief synopsis of the documentary Miss Representation, which explores the very problematic ways girls and women are represented in popular media: http://www.thesociologicalcinema.com/1/post/2011/10/miss-representation.html]
""I don't see race. I'm a good person." Translation: I'm going to use my place of privilege to refute and deny the sufferings of those who do not have white privilege while at the same time erasing their personal and cultural history." #racism #feminism
Brave women have fought for women's equality since 1848. Our right to vote wasn't even won until 1920, and there is so much more. The history of women's rights is long and rich with brave women and important gains. There is still a very long way to go before women are truly equal in this country. Sadly, the 'fight' is far from over.
