I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about feminism. Mainly, that it's all about man hating. As a feminist, I feel like I have to clear that up.
What feminism is:
- Wanting equality for men and women
- Women wanting the same rights, chances and privileges that men have
- Equal pay for equal work (If we’re doing the same work, why should men get paid more?)
What it's not:
- I feel like I have to repeat this: feminism is NOT man hating
Despite what you may think I'm not here to turn you all into feminists. I just wanted to clear up some of the misconceptions. Whether or not you classify yourself as a feminist its important to understand what it's really about.
If you still hate the word, it is not the word that is important. It’s the idea and the ambition behind it.
