The world needs feminism because no one should feel pressured to conform to gender roles. Being born with a vagina or penis (or neither or both) does in no way define what kind of a person you are, what your likes and dislikes are, or what you are capable of accomplishing in your lifetime.
I need feminism because my ex-boyfriend told me that “there is no discrimination in the workplace” and that job equality would be reached once we stopped “majoring in 14th century French literature”. He then went on to claim that we needed to “get over it” because “this is the way the world is”.
[Bumper sticker reads: Women shouldn’t drive anything.]
Feminism is still needed because my friend posted a picture on her Facebook wall of this car that was driving in front her. People who responded to this picture did not view it as sexist, but instead they cracked jokes about it or told my friend I to just ignore it because we’re overreacting.
