Constellation 3rd October.Posted: October 18, 2013
As part of our seminar on October 3rd we were placed in groups of three then we had to argue an issue we are passionate about. Our group chose Feminism and this is our argument.
Feminism is not just a female issue. Feminism is an issue of equality. In a society where internalised misogyny is learnt from a young age, it is more important than ever for women to feel they have a voice. It is not an issue of man hating, but instead an issue of feeling safe and secure in one’s community. 1 in 6 women are abused at some point in their lives, so it must be taught that women are not inferior, nor are they objects of sexual gratification. We are strong, powerful members of society with ambition and valid opinions. Femme does not mean frail.
