    Thank You To All The Anti-feminists

    I believe that everyone should have equal rights

    and equal opportunities. Women are still judged all around the world and given less power. They are persecuted for the simplest of actions. Thats why I passively protest, no violence just honesty.

    I Am A Human Too!

    Feminism is about equality. Its goal is to have the female as well as the male perspective given equal voices. If we live in a society that is dominated by either sex we do not get the full experience of human life.

    because women are people with the same standing as men. Women don't need to be "protected" any more than the rest of the public. And she certainly CAN make her own decisions regarding her health and body.
