Feminism is constituted of movements and ideologies which aim to define, establish and defend equal political, economical, cultural and social rights for women. Webster dictionary explains the word feminism as : the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities, the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes, organized activity in support of women’s rights and interests. A feminist, is in fact, a person who fights for the equality of the sexes. So, who needs feminism? We all do.
Who needs feminism decided not to release their own definition of feminism, as it might stand in the way of each creating his/her own version. Who needs feminism is comprised of 16 women, from Duke University who:” Our class was disturbed by what we perceive to be an overwhelmingly widespread belief that today’s society no longer needs feminism. In order to change this perception, we have launched a PR campaign for feminism. We aim to challenge existing stereotypes surrounding feminists and assert the importance of feminism today. We feel that until the denigration surrounding feminism and women’s issues is alleviated, it will be hard to achieve total gender equality, both statistically and socially.”
” The goal of our project is to decrease negative associations with the word that would keep anyone from identifying with the movement. However, we encourage you all to keep defining it yourselves… you have given better answers than we could have ever imagined!”
As a result, the Who needs feminism campaign has taken the online world by storm, people posting snaps of them and their answer to this question. Starting from Duke University, the campaign reached the halls of Cambridge University or Oxford University in the UK which only shows that students do have some power in this world, even if they cannot see it at times. The answers might impress and surprise you. And you? Why do you need feminism?
