Feminism

According to Witt, feminism is the belief in social, economic, and political equality for women. In words that are more simple, feminism is the belief that women should be treated in the same ways that men are treated. Women used to be known for staying home with the children, cooking, cleaning, and pretty much taking care of everything at home, while men went out and went to work every day, making a living for his family. Now since most women decide that they want to work and help with the household income, they don’t seem to be getting paid the same as men, even if they are doing the exact same kind of work. Men will almost always be paid more than women.

As a woman going to school and working, I fully support feminism. Granted, men can be good at some things, but women can also be better at some things that men are not very good at.

Emma Watson, best known for her role in the Harry Potter series as Hermione Granger, gave a speech not too long ago about “He for She”. Even though her speech was quite lengthy, she gave some good points. I have posted the link to the video if you would like to watch it.

This is a photo of women fighting for their right for equality. Women want to be treated the same as men, we are not less than them.
