I WROTE THIS FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY FOR MY SCHOOL WEBSITE:
Happy International Women’s Day to all the beautiful women (and men) out there. I know this is going to sound very grown up and you might even say that I’m talking things beyond my age, but these are some things that all of us should think about.
FEMINISM• is quite a big word these days, but many people don’t really know what it means, they think they do but they have misinterpreted the meaning behind this word. Many women and men alike, would not associate themselves with the word as they think that it means someone who is “anti-men” and to me, a hardcore feminist, that’s just BS.
Contrary to popular belief , Feminism is not only about women, it’s about equality, it’s about getting our voices heard, no matter what race, gender, sexuality or place we belong to.
Feminism, is giving someone a choice, a choice to live life as they want, to do whatever they want with their bodies, to wear whatever they want, to date whoever they want and to BE whoever they want to be.
Feminism is accepting people as they are. No judgements passed.
Though feminism related more to the oppression of women, and people with non-binary gender identities and expressions, it is open to everyone.
The very core belief of feminism is equality for everyone who have or will grace the surface of this planet.
I hope this clears all misconceptions 🙂 all love.
