What is Feminism?


On Feminism

"The advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes." 

- Oxford Dictionary

"The best way for us to cultivate fearlessness in our daughters and other young women is by example.  If they see their mothers and other women in their lives going forward despite fear, they'll know it's possible."

- Gloria Steinem

"No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens."

- Michelle Obama

"Human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights.  Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely - and the right to be heard."

- Hillary Clinton

"I raise up my voice - not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard.  We cannot succeed when half of us are held back."

- Malala Yousafzai

"It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals.  We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are."

- Emma Watson
