#MyFeminism

What is female empowerment? #MyFeminism

It is the fact that we are all different that makes us all dynamic. Each woman and man has their own take on feminism and what it means to them. This makes a lot of sense as none of us are the same.

Truth be told we can’t dictate what feminism is to other people, although even I have been guilty of such.

  • Woman A: Her Feminism might be to raise her voice and bring about awareness and change.
  • Woman B: Her Feminism is going topless in the city that doesn’t allow it.
  • Woman C: Her Feminism can be posing nude after having a baby showing off all her scars without airbrushing.
  • Woman D: Her Feminism could be raising her voice against violence acts towards women.

You cannot tell a woman how to be a feminist or when to be a feminist.

My Feminism is: Advocating for self respect and encouraging education.

Just because you express your opinion regarding the over-sexualization of women in the entertainment business doesn’t make you any less of a #feminist. I often speak about the influence that over-sexualization has on our youth. Youth will emulate what they see their favorite artists doing. It doesn’t make me any less of a feminist nor a hater to demand the best for our children. If they are constantly being exposed to overtly risque images on the internet, movies, and billboards, then why is it wrong to call that out and write about how it has a negative effect on our youth? What is a feminist without her voice? Everyone is so worried about offending everyone/everything except the future.

In an age where everyone wants to be famous and will do anything for relevancy, it’s important that we also promote education.

That is #MyFeminism. What’s yours?
