I Am A Feminist

I am a feminist. I believe that as a feminist I should not be satisfied with the movement and say "ah yah, that's old hat - women are equal nowadays" until EVERY women has the opportunities that men have. It is like being a bodhisaatva. I don't want to be enlightened until everyone is. Why should I want to be awake with a few people while others suffer. Same thing to me.

the women that I have chosen photos of for this
post are family, friends, some acquaintances - but they all represent the power and beauty of women to me...

Normal, real, happy, sad,

women.

Thank goodness for that.

Great post, Jan! I am a feminist, too, and love the strong women in my life (and the men who are supportive of women being strong)--it is amazing to me though, that so many people are content when the disparities still have such a long way to go.

I love being a woman and being strong. I am a boxer, yes, a real boxer in a real boxing ring. Women's boxing is SO much fun!
