"women are the real enemy to other women"

i don’t get that. 

More and more women are becoming educated, even in some aspects surpassing men but in my mind that hasn’t made enough of a change. 

Because we have continued to only value the same things from both men and women, so we can have people who look different and dress different but if we continue to promulgate the same values then we haven’t changed anything. 

Young girls who are assertive are given the tag of ‘bossy’ whereas young boys are ‘leaders’.
Men who show people their emotions are seen as ‘soft’ or ‘wet’, instead of being seen as a more open and modern man. 

We ask so much of each sex, we demand change from each side every day but when it happens we don’t accept it, we ridicule it. 

Yes please.

Yes please.

"I don't believe in Feminism" Why this is detrimental to the women of the world.

rambling-ofafatgirl:

When women tell me they don’t believe in feminism, that they don’t want to ‘burn their bras' or they don't hate men. It makes me sad for two reasons.

1. Their lack of education on such an important movement has caused them to believe that all feminists do is cause…

The read more bit of my post talks about the sexism and other things that men suffer. And how that would be in a separate post otherwise this one would be lusciously long. I have no reservations that men suffer around the world too. I know they do. My view of feminism is that yes we want equality but not to negatively impact men whilst achieving it because many people think we are ‘men haters’ and I can assure you I and many other feminists are not! The facts in my post are about what the feminist movement has done for the world which some people seem to forget. There is a hell of a long way to go to becoming a completely equal society. if we could just have ‘Rights’ that would be perfect but apparently that isn’t how the system works. Why is there ‘gay rights’ why isn’t that just included under ‘human rights’ because that’s how it should be.
I wish I had the answers to make it easier on each gender or minority but we can only do or say so much as a single person. Thats not a problem with feminism, it’s a problem with society as a whole.

"I don’t believe in Feminism" Why this is detrimental to the women of the world.

When women tell me they don’t believe in feminism, that they don’t want to ‘burn their bras' or they don't hate men. It makes me sad for two reasons. 

1. Their lack of education on such an important movement has caused them to believe that all feminists do is cause riots, refuse to shave, burn their bras, wish inequality upon men and so forth. This is so false it’s almost laughable. 

2. If all women don’t believe in our need to be equal in our forward moving society, the goal is going to become harder and harder to reach. Do they not value themselves, their mothers/sisters/daughters/aunts/grandmothers enough to want better for them now? 

Obviously it is easier for a woman NOT to be feminist in this day and age because we have it a LOT better - no denying the immense progress that has been made but the fact that they do not seem to understand is this…without feminists you wouldn’t have the lives your have now. 

- You couldn’t vote 

- You couldn’t legally enter into a contract 

- You could never own property

- You couldn’t have a job outside of your home - let alone start your own business. 

- You couldn’t continue to work once you were married or pregnant 

- Any money you earn, however small, is yours to keep. 

- You can get a divorce

- You can use birth control 

- You can say YES to sex or NO to sex 

- You can choose who to love, no matter what sex they are. 

- You can go to College or University

- You can become a lawyer, a doctor, a head of state, a CEO, a soldier. 

- You can walk into a bar on your own

- You can have a tattoo 

- You can walk alone in public wearing…TROUSERS! 

- You can show your natural beauty or enhance it with makeup. 

- You can choose your OWN religion 

- You can participate in the olympics 

- You are NO man’s property….not your husband, boyfriend or father. 

- You can have an abortion. 

There are laws in place to protect you now. You have rights like any other human being. 
Laws against; 

> stalking

> rape [marital rape]

> domestic abuse

> sexual harassment 

I’m sure many of you skimmed that list because we have those rights now don’t we? You already KNOW all of that, but did you know the majority of these rights were illegal before, or just not allowed. 
This is what feminism has done. 

You would not be sitting in the coffee shop your sitting in now reading this. You would not be planning to walk to class, or to the gym, or a friends house on your own. 
You would not be wearing those shorts/skirt, that really cute shirt which you feel great in. 
You wouldn’t have access to things like this. 

So great, we have all of this…but what next? 

We still get paid on average about 9.8% less than men,A mother is 70% less likely to be hired.  
There are hundreds of thousands of women around the globe who are still denied these rights you so easily take for granted. 
There are 8 year old girls who are being sold off to men as ‘child brides’ because they are female. 
Thousands of women every day are trafficked across the world. 

Feminism doesn’t just stop because YOU feel like you’re equal. 

You need to stand with us in fighting for a happier,safer and healthier world for women all over the world. Just because you can do all of the above, doesn’t mean everyone can.
