On being a women and feminism (and why I am not a feminist)

I would gently encourage you to look into intersectionality, or intersectional feminism — which discusses the ways various factors (including things like race, age, disability, etc) intersect along with gender in regards to privilege and how we are each treated in the world.

I also assure you that being a feminist has nothing to do with being feminine, and that there isn’t a requirement of activism in order to consider oneself a feminist. Feminist = someone who acknowledges that women still do not get the same treatment and opportunities as men do (you cite many examples of this in your article), and a belief that that system is not fair or right. (Intersectional feminism — then adds on the layers of race, age, etc, into that mix)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
