I’m a feminist/ I need feminism because, as I was getting my henna done for the Eid celebration, some child bride in the world was getting hers done for her marriage.

I need feminism because on April 14th, 276 Nigerian girls were kidnapped by militants for having the audacity to attend school. 

Five months later not a single student has been rescued…
I AM NOT OK WITH THIS.

I NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE
Y’all still mad about Nicki’s “Anaconda” video.
When I came forward about my sexual assault in 9th grade, after about two weeks of “therapy”, my assaulter was placed back in my PE class. (By the way, my school did not provide me with any therapy.)
I’ve heard: “you’re pretty for a dark skinned girl!” too many times. 
As a WOC, I’m afraid to bring children into this world. 
Michael Brown can be murdered in cold blood and y’all still won’t get it.

I need feminism because during summer a group of drunk men catcalled me while i was alone at the beach.
I’m twelve and I’ve been so scared of strange men since that I need pepper spray to feel safe.

I NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE…
MY DIRECTOR ASKED ALL THE MEN ON STAFF (INCLUDING A BUSBOY THAT HAD ONLY BEEN EMPLOYED FOR TWO WEEKS) TO BE MANAGER BEFORE ASKING ANY FEMALE EMPLOYEES - SOME WHO HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED FOR TWO YEARS.

I need feminism because I believe in equality, not in superiority. 

Too many women around the world are still lawfully beaten by their husbands for ‘disobedience’. It happens everyday. 


They can’t stand up for themselves, but we can stand up for them.

I need feminism because: when I reported a male teacher for sexual assault…
I was told by students who were not there at the time it happened that “You shouldn’t have reported him.”
I had to miss my classes whilst the investigation was going on. He continued to teach as usual.
He suffered little to no consequences, whilst I was seen as a lying bitch.
The panel who dealt with it were all males aged 40-60.
This teacher is known by almost all students to be a pervert.
AND I STILL HAVE HIM AS A TEACHER, ONE YEAR ON, DESPITE THERE BEIN MANY OTHER TEACHERS IN HIS SUBJECT. MY TIMETABLE “CANNOT” BE CHANGED.

"I need feminism because there is a lack of education about consent. So when I finally spoke up about my ex-boyfriend raping me, everyone (including him), believed I was just lying for attention. 4 years later and everyone still thinks that."

I need feminism because people I know believe that women are only useful for “cooking, cleaning, and looking pretty”, and can never have real jobs because men are smarter and better than women.

I need feminism because I should not be berated  for not watching my mom every time she cooks while my older 20 year old brother can barely make pasta but is living in his own apartment away from home. I also should not be called weird just because when I get older, I would rather adopt instead of getting married and forming a traditional family. Apparently my beliefs are “abnormal and selfish for a girl”.

I need feminism because as a transguy I’m still scared to walk down the street at night in case someone figures out my biological sex and decides to rape me because of it.

I need feminism because when I told my friends that I was raped by my (now ex-) girlfriend, they responded with: “A girl can’t rape you. Only men.”
The fact that I’m a girl as well made it appear even more ridiculous to them…
