21st Century Feminist!

I have been reading many blogs by women. Lately, they have been focusing on the issues we women face and how many woman don’t want to be identified as feminist. Why is this the case?

Feminist and feminism is an every evolving movement. It covers a wide range of issues and not all feminist agree with one another and that is o’k. We come in all shapes, all colors, all ages.

Earlier today, I picked up an dictionary to look up the definition of “feminism” and part of the definition limited the movement to 19th and 20th century, it spoke on the movements push for social, political, and financial equality. But isn’t feminism more than that.

To me, feminism is about being able to be the person you are without being punished for not fitting a narrow stereotype. It is a pushing for the recognition of being valid and  equal in every way: intellectually, socially, politically, financially…everything.

Feminism is about the right for a woman to say “No,” to follow her own path, to be ruled by the patriarchal system that has lived for generations, the right to choose.

Feminism should not exclude certain women because they choose to be moms or make a living from their looks (or body).

Feminism is for all women!
