It’s so annoying how people have given a different meaning to the word feminism, before I tell you why I am a feminist let’s define it properly.
Feminism is a range of political, ideologies and social movements that share a common goal; to define, establish and achieve political, economic, personal and social equality of sexes.
A feminist is someone who is an advocate of women’s rights on the ground of equality of the sexes.
From the definition of feminism we see no sex is mentioned for the equality of other sexes meaning it can either be male or female, while a feminist is a female who advocates for women rights. Joining this 2 definitions together states why I am a feminist. I am a feminist who advocates for the political, economic and social equality of sexes.
I am of the believe that no strong feminist would wake up one morning deciding she wants to be a feminist, most feminists always have a story behind their decision. As a feminist my plan is not to wipe away men from the planet or take over their basic responsibilities, i mean we are living in a male dominated world so it’s basically impossible to just all of a sudden sweep them under the mat, all i want is for women to be given a chance!
A chance to speak up
A chance to express ourselves
A chance for our decisions to be implemented
A chance to prove to people that we are more than what they see us to be.
A chance for our voice to be heard.
Don’t you think if for once a woman can get to a position she earned without satisfying a man’s sexual desires? Its high time we actually get rewarded for our hardwork. Women are natural hard workers and after working so hard it’s just one man that will come from no where and say no she can’t get the position because she’s a woman.
As a woman our place is not just in the kitchen or the bedroom, we should also be to have a place in political and economical decisions without any form of godfatherism in the picture. Our rights are not divided into 2 neither do we have male and female rights.
To us feminists nobody likes an extremist. You advocating for the right thing doesn’t mean you should reget certain benefits or stop doing your normal women duties, for example benefits like a guy wanting to pay the bills when on a date and you will say no “I am a feminist i will pay ” mtchew better don’t let your bank account look like someone’s jamb result because you made an insensitive decision. Also don’t go home and keep your husband hungry, telling him he should cook because you want equality of rights in the house, if it was about him cooking he might as well remained a bachelor. All I’m saying is that apply wisdom in all you are doing.
To all my beautiful women out there do everything to make your voice heard, keep working hard , DONT KEEP QUIET IN ANY TYPE OF VIOLENCE AT ALL.
SPEAK UP, SPEAK UP, SPEAK UP!!!
YOU WILL NEVER BE HEARD UNTIL YOU SPEAK UP
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
