THE DISCUSSION ABOUT SEXISM AND GENDER IS STILL RELEVANT.
Call it whatever you want - feminism, equalism, humanism - the point is that many of the ways that we represent, interpret, perpetuate and make laws based on rigid gender roles are problematic and HARMFUL TO PEOPLE OF ALL GENDERS. We have a responsibility and an incentive to be proactive about becoming more conscious and taking action to change things! This is not someone else’s problem - we’re all in this together.
My favourites in this set are the Muslim women (feminism is about choice) and the men. Hearing from men who care about women’s well-being enough to fight for it or who bring up (one of the myriad) ways that sexism and rigid gender roles hurt men is SO POWERFUL.
