I need feminism because…sexual harassment [not taken seriously when reported to my boss] is the reason I’ve quit more than one job!
Thank you feminist for…
- standing up for my right to vote (1920) - helping everyone start to receive equal pay (EPA of 1963) - representing a woman’s right to become employed while pregnant (PDA of 1978) - assisting in finally getting legal aid to those who do survive domestic violence (VAWA of 1994)
I need feminism because I didn’t deserve walking home alone at night only to have my blood frozen with fear at EVERY sound, thinking it’s the man who tried to rape me almost two years ago, wanting to finish the job. I was only 15.
