Feminist is not a dirty word. Being a feminist does not mean I think lesser of men. Being a feminist means that I am nineteen years old, female, and I’ve been catcalled, sneered at and laughed at, groped on the street, groped at school, harassed, belittled, boxed into a glass elevator (the list goes on….) and all before I’ve really hit adulthood. So here I am, writing this blog post, to let you all know that I am 100%, officially, over this shit.

  1. It really is time for everyone to get over feminist being a dirty word. Stop putting modifiers in front of it and assigning defining traits to it. It is a word used to describe someone who sees the inequality in the gender and wants to do something to close those gaps.

    I really wish that Holly Bourne’s “What’s a Girl Gotta Do?” was available on Amazon.com. Right now, it’s only available on Amazon.uk. It sounds fabulous & I’ve heard several people mentioning it.

    There was a really funny satire article the other day that poked fun at how women of renown are critiqued & mentioned in the media for how they look. This post reminded me of it: http://qz.com/743526/hillary-clintons-husband-wore-a-fetching-pantsuit-to-honor-her-nomination-for-us-president/
