'I need feminism because when I was in court, the (male) magistrate asked me if I'd been wearing a “sexy and provocative” dress when I was sexually assaulted.'

"I need feminism because I live in Brazil and 65% of brazilians agree that ‘women that wear short clothes DESERVE being raped’"
Currently, a search from IPEA (Instituo de Pesquisa Econômica Aplicada - Apllied Economic Research Institute) depicts how violence against women is still tolerated in Brazil. Most brazilians think that those women who wear clothes that reveal parts os the body deserve to be attacked. It’s also the majority group that believes that “if the woman knew how to behave”, rape statistics would be lower.

I need feminism because the guy at the bar wouldn’t let go of my arms when I didn’t wanna dance with him. He held my wrists so hard it hurt. And afterwards my dad said “You should have danced with him then” when I told him what had happened.

I need feminism because my baby-sitter’s oldest son who was 18 molested me for a year when I was 4 years old and wasn’t arrested until 14 years later because he raped a 6 year old girl, but they said the girl and I dressed older than our age because we wore tank tops…

I need feminism because a guy asked me for my number and I declined. He then said that “I’m assuming you have a boyfriend and that’s why you won’t give your number to me?”
I politely told him that I just don’t give my number to strangers and I apologized to him (something I did NOT have to do).
What does he do? He says that he’s “hurt” that I was being “rude” to him and that all he wanted to do was “get to know me better.”

I need feminism because my husband proudly introduces me as a military pilot with an advanced engineering degree — and yet sees nothing wrong with continuing to make sexist comments about other women at the gym, at church, at the grocery store…everywhere.

I need feminism because when I asked to do a talk raising awareness of eating disorders at school I was told that I would only encourage other girls with my story because “they think it’s a good idea to be anorexic.”
