I love discussion, community, journeying, wrestling, chatting late into the night, learning, reading, understanding, growing and sharing and I want to do all of that with YOU! I’ll post questions I get asked and comments too so that we can work things out together.
I am definitely at the
stage of all of this and I’m loving it!
I don’t have answers and rules and nothing is set in stone here – feminism isn’t a club or an organisation with a logo and a membership card. It’s simply believing that you and me are people. That we’re valuable, unique and worthy of respect no matter what dangly bits we may or may not have. Simple!
Let’s get started with a few bits from this past week……
I wonder what you think the most immediate goal for contemporary feminism should be?
Where do you think the most energy should be spent?
How do you choose your battles?
Not to imply that any issue is trivial but I wonder if there’s a requirement for more formalised leadership within feminism?
What do YOU think? Leave a comment below and let’s get chatting!
It was illuminating and concerning to hear successful TV cook Mary Berry announce that
feminism was a dirty word
“didn’t want women’s rights and all that”
Perhaps she just can’t be bothered to have a career anymore, wishes she never learned how to read, got bored of choosing how to spend her money and ran out of ideas for her own opinions. Each to their own. But I’m pretty sure she’s enjoying many rights without realising.
not liking shouting and wanting to respect men as reasons to reject feminism
but this only highlights her misunderstanding of it. Good news, Mrs Berry –
feminism is with you.
We like the same things.
We can be friends.
