Feminism Means Empowerment For All Women, Not Just Western Women

Thank you for this brilliant piece! Recently, I discovered and enjoyed reading Azar Nafisi’s Reading Lolita In Tehran and her story widened my view of the context from which I see feminism. Your piece goes even further in this direction. I consider myself an intuitive feminist with a rudimentary knowledge of the global issues of women and a deep sense of outrage for oppression in any form. The very last thing I’d wish to do to another women is oppress her, dismiss her cultural and religious beliefs or stifle her unitque feminine expression in the name of Western feminism.

Like what you read? Give S Lynn Knight a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
