[WNF Note: Triota Women’s Studies Honors Society, Students United for Reproductive Justice, and National Organization for Women at University of Connecticut teamed up this month for a Who Needs Feminism photo campaign. This is the last image out of a series of four.]
I need feminism because I am a woman and I am horny and NO one should judge me for it.
I need feminism because…wearing a 32A cup doesn’t make me “pretty much a boy.” My identity should not be dictated by the size of my breasts!
I need feminism because I’m tired of men asking me if I can cook.
I NEED FEMINISM
because most guys I know feel uncomfortable around ‘outspoken’ or confident women! (luckily I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY THINK)
if I was male, people would probably agree with me and admire my frankness and confidence, but I’m not, so deal with it.
I NEED FEMINISM
because every day strangers leer at me, catcall me, say ‘nice legs’ or tell me to ‘get my tits out’. I don’t remember the last time I whistled at a guy in shorts and told him to ‘get his dick out’…hmm- oh yeah, because this DOESN’T HAPPEN.
learn to treat us with respect, as we do to you.
I need feminism because I’m sick of being told to take being followed home by strangers as a compliment. I deserve to feel safe.
I need feminism because I’m tired of reading magazine articles entitled, “What men think about [insert woman’s fashion/hair/makeup choice].” I don’t need Cosmo to ask 100 men about whether my outfit is “sexy or skanky.”
I need feminism because women are shamed for carrying condoms in their bags while men are applauded for being “well prepared.” I refuse to feel guilty for protecting myself.
I need feminism because…
My friend says she’s a feminist but laughs at slut shaming jokes because it’s “just a joke”. Then I’m the “extreme” feminist for calling her out on it.
This is also the girl that told me I should dress how I want society to perceive me. I don’t think she understands what feminism is…
I Need Feminism becuase I need to show my dad that I can be a doctor, and not someones assistant.
I need feminism because I’m tired of being blamed for not feeling the same.
Also called friendzone
I need feminism because “FEMINIST” shouldn’t be an insult.
I need feminism because child prostitution need to end!
I need feminism because my female principle called one of my classmates disgusting because of the length of her skirt and asked another to buy a new uniform because her breasts were to large/obvious in our conservative uniform.
I need feminism because people still believe that a single father can’t raise a daughter. I’m proof that a man can raise children just as well as a woman, despite what traditional gender roles dictate.
