"She needs feminism because… Due to insufficient dowry this young girl’s husband lacerated her face with a razor blade (Gwalior - India)"
This photo sums up why we still need feminism. We don’t need it for ourselves living in our cosy modern first world society where we suffer from mild inconveniences, but for the women out there who legitimately have no rights, are not protected by any laws, and are actually oppressed because of their gender. The saddest part about this photo is knowing that 7,000 young girls lost their lives for the same thing back in 2001, some of whom were burned alive. With that statistic in mind you could almost consider this girl lucky to escape with just a few scratches… Can you comprehend just how screwed up that is?
You got cat called? There was a video with topless ladies who agreed to show off their bodies? Someone told you to make a sandwich or get back to the kitchen as a gender stereotypical joke? Wow, so oppressed… You have 0% of my support.
WE don’t need feminism, THEY need feminism.
Stop calling yourself a feminist, because it implies that you suffer from gender related oppression. Consider yourself a Human Rights Activist, because it implies that you support the real feminists out there who so desperately need the feminist movement.
