Wondering why feminism is still necessary? Because I can read the above article and still identify ideas I was raised with and still hear today. I still see women, including myself, fighting this image of female perfection that is basically slavery.

It’s better than it was- but it’s not there yet. And in many other countries women STILL live with these rules and MORE. In some places, living like this would be easy compared to their current cultural expectations.

My personal thoughts on this whole thing… 😉

Now I want to clarify something: There’s a huge difference between being a woman like that article describes, subservient to men not having her own views or rights etc, and being a stay at home mom who cooks and cleans as a part of her CHOSEN role. I have the greatest respect for those women, and if I had kids I’d probably stay at home with them too until they were older. The point is that women should not be considered less than men, their needs should be equally important, they shouldn’t be told to “sit down and shut up”, and whether a woman cooks and cleans or has kids or not should be HER CHOICE- not a life decided for her or a set of rules that is synonymous with feminine perfection. Feminism is about women being able to decide their own path for themselves and not being judged for it.
