Quote of the Week- Types of Feminism

"There's just as many kinds of feminism as there are women in the world." - Kathleen Hanna

Let's all just do something, shall we?

Our baby's clothes are being made by another woman's small child.
Our rights are being chipped away at daily.
In MOST cases, we still don't have equal pay or much maternity leave.
All over the world, women don't have access to education, to freedom, or to clean water.

We are making choices constantly that define who we are and what we are willing to put up with.

You don't have to agree with what I think, but know what you think, and do the work to make self-critical choices.

If you are disgusted by the idea of sweat shops, stop buying clothes at stores that use them (and if you aren't sure, look it up!)
If you are frustrated with the state of education in your area, volunteer and get involved.
If you think people should have jobs, stop using self check-outs and showing stores you are willing to do that work yourself.
If you feel people are mistreated, just keep being kind.
If you think it should be different, advocate! Get in there!

I don't believe in telling someone they aren't a femminist because they have a different set of ideas than I do, but if you have choices, make them knowingly. Don't slide along on your privilege. Capitalism constantly feeds us this lie that it should be easy, but you have to question whether making something easier for you is making it much harder for someone else.

We are all responsible for the world we are in- if you can see a way to make your world better, you have to. Inactivity and passivity are the worst we can do.
