Thoughts on Feminism

feminism and world peace! yay!

feminism and world peace! yay!

When I was in first form my Indian teacher told me that feminism was to differentiate yourself from the door mat. It meant respect for others, but mostly respect for your self. Feminism is the ability to not only stand up for what you believe in as a woman but love and the high esteem you hold for yourself and the rest of the world.

I have long ago associated being a feminist with being a humanitarian. In my opinion, the world has forgotten what it means to fight for justice at all cost. Equal rights are important but  being your brothers keeper is more important, because only then can we get closer to achieving world peace.

Our great hope lies in encouraging all that is good not forcibly repressing what is evil.

    I would have to agree with your humanitarian viewpoint. Feminism is all about helping all people, not just women. That’s what I love about being a feminist. It betters the world by helping minorities everywhere! :)
