What’s The Definition of Feminism?
What is the definition of Feminism? I grew up hearing that term but for some reason I thought it was used in a negative way. Actually, feminism was ALWAYS used in a negative way from what I remember.
That is unless you were using it for yourself. I watched the Oscars tonight and heard that quite a bit. One of the captions on a blog I came across was, "Jimmy Kimmel letting his Feminist flag fly high at the Oscars!"
That's when I googled feminism. I'm totally serious. In all my years hearing this word this was the first time I actually looked up the definition,
Feminish - the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.
Enough already! Equal. Equal. Equal. I'm tired of hearing about your equal. You're getting it already so bring the attitude down a bit.
What a great teaching moment to parents. "It starts at home" That was brilliant. The #metoo and #timesup movements are just the beginning. To be honest this has been going on since 1920 when women were given the right to vote. Think about that. They had to vote about that and put it in law.
You are about to witness the power of the people over the next few years. Remember this moment because I believe through all the agony will meet a wave of celebrations. The country is changing in front of our eyes and this part might just be one of our finest hours. Through tragedy, we triumph.
I don't typically watch the Oscar's but wanted to see what Hollywood would do. Tonight the show was about the awards but it was far more than that. They tackled racism, feminism, and equality for everyone.
You're about to witness the true meaning of, rise up.
