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.

 

In other words Feminism is when women demand to have the same rights as men! Why should women have equal rights as men? Because we, too, are citizens born with unalienable rights and we want the ability to exercise them freely. American society, and other societies around the globe have been and continue to be 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. If the government is more focused on giving Men more “ sophisticated” work over women, what chance do women have to experience challenges and gain experience in the workplace?!

 

In  addition, the patriarchal belief is that women should stay home and take care of their children, but that myth is harmful to the freedom of women because women aren’t able to go out and make a living for themselves. Imagine if Men had the same roles that society puts on women, then maybe Men would understand the struggles women have to endure in order to live in a nation that treats them and views them as inferior. For example, less than intelligent, less than capable, and less than human. Inequality is a cycle that has been planted in our heads. We need to take that plant out and put 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 an American society should be to unite all genders together and not aim to separate, why? Because, if men and women were united, America would hardly have any internal social, economic, and political tensions-- not concerning gender equality, at least.

 

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!
