"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 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 on average, a full-time working woman earns 17.1%* LESS per week than a full-time working man.
If you change this to part-time or casual work his pay-gap can change to 37.3%*.
I DO NOT WANT THIS TO BE MY FUTURE!
*percentages found online while doing a school assignment on inequity (I chose women) and those percentages were taken in February 2014, in Australia.
