Woke up this Sunday to a very strange quote by a modern day woman I had come to admire.
As she spoke about her personal goals of settling down as a homely wife- a clear contrast to the picture of free thinking & free-spirited characters she’s gained recent success for , she voiced her opinions on the dreaded F word.
Feminism amongst other things as per her was wanting to be a man.
It’s quite sad how influencers in power positions who get a patient listening ear sometime are so indiscreet with their views on subjects that are larger than you and me that they do more damage to the cause than help it.
As a career woman who also happens to be married and a mother – my definition of Feminism is fairly simple and it doesn’t remotely fall near the vicinity of ‘wanting to be a man’.
I am a Feminist, who loves being a woman . Let’s rephrase being my own person. With my views & the courage to voice them when I wish to . I don’t enjoy being singled out , I’d rather be recognized for what I bring to the table, the conversation , to the moment.
Good or bad , with all my imperfections in place – I am a person. That’s Feminism to me .
What is Feminism to you and does it bother you the way it’s thrown around as a topic so frivolously?
Linking it up with #MicroBlogMondays .
