What even is feminism?

Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

  • “But we are equal though
  • “I don’t hate men”
    • See the quote at the top
    • Feminism is not the same as misandry
    • It is about raising women up not pulling men down
  • “But you say men are bad”
    • No
    • Feminism is about destroying the patriarchy that pervades society, not destroying men
    • The patriarchy hurts men too
  • “You’re victimising me”
    • The patriarchal society did that
  • “I like to be feminine and girly”
    • Feminism is about supporting all women in all that they want to do
    • Stay at home mom or president, we want you to be able to do it all
