International Women’s Day

leave a comment »

I am a feminist. According to Webster’s that means that I espouse the theory of the political, social, and economic equality of the sexes. And, since those conditions of equality do not exist in the United States, or anywhere else on this planet, I believe in organized political activity on behalf of women.

I am a feminist because I want to show my girls a world in which men and women live their passions, not merely their pre-assigned gender roles. I am a feminist because I believe women should get equal pay for equal work. I am a feminist because I believe that women should be sovereign over their bodies. I am a feminist because I believe that the worth of a woman is not contained in her bust measurement or her waist line.

On International Women’s Day 2011, I want the world to know that I am a feminist.
