A Small Rant on Feminism by Tabreia V.C.

Feminism (n): the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.

Basically, feminism is when women just want the same rights as men! Why should women have equal rights as men? Because we, too, are citizens born with certain unalienable rights and we don’t want the ability to exercise them freely. American society, and other societies around the world are  manipulated into believing that Women are less powerful, and less worthy than men are. For example, Men get better paying jobs than women because they are believed to be more capable of doing ANY job.

There's also a myth that women should stay home and take care of their children. But, wouldn't you  agree that if men had the same responsibilities as women, that we would be equal, and there wouldn't be  a such thing as feminism?! So, maybe if you’re a person who hates feminism so much, you can blame all of the men who have treated women as less than intelligent, less than capable, and less than human since the beginning of time! Inequality is a seed that has been  planted in our heads and has grown. We need to take that plant out and replace it with the seed of equality so that generations after us can see that no matter who you are, we are all created equal. Our goal as a society should be to unite and not aim to separate, why? Because, if men and women were united, America would hardly have any internal social, economic, or political tensions-- not concerning gender equality, at least. Can't make any promises about the slew of other issues we have as a nation.

MY GOAL IS TO ADVOCATE FOR EQUAL RIGHTS! I AM A POWERFUL AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN WITH A VOICE, AND I AM READY TO HELP ALL WOMEN CLAIM THEIR POWER!
