Contrary to popular belief, feminists are not man-haters that believe women are better than men, instead we constantly fight for equal representation of all genders in political, economic, and social forms. Being a feminist doesn’t mean you think women deserve special rights; it means you know we deserve equal ones.

Most feminists not only fight for the equalization of men and women, but for all races, religions, classes, and basically for everyone to be on an equal playing field.

While more people are starting to support and understand feminism, unfortunately, there is still a negative stigma behind it. Part of this issue is the way our media dramatizes things, making it seem like all feminists want to eliminate all men.

We need feminism because when women are assaulted, they are often the ones who feel ashamed. We still need feminism because we teach women how to prevent rape, instead of teaching people to not view women as objects. We need feminism because rapists are set free because the victim was dressed “inappropriately”. Because women are told that walking alone at night makes them “an easy target”. Because there is a 23% wage gap. We still need feminism because our bodies are still being legislated for us.

Feminism is not a joke, it is not women trying to rule the world, it is a very important cause that will benefit the future of our world and you should be a part of it.
