I don’t want to ONly tell you the story of the sufFRagetes but to tell you abOut all of the fusion of stories over the years that HAVE INSPIRED FEMINISTS everywherE.

Why am i a feminist? Feminism meRely is equality of the sexes. Women have been indocTrinated and tRained to be meek & needy. To be the princess waiting for their knight in shining armour, afraid of being too passionate, too loud, too big. We should be repulsed bY our flaws- especially if we are too bIg, we shouLdn’t be imposing.
Yet we, as Feminists, lOve men. We want men to be allOwed to embrace both their mascUlinity & femininity. We want men to be treated with kindness & consideration. We want men to be allowed to express themSelves. We want justice. We don’t sUpPort a woman just BeCause she’s fEmale nor do we oppose a man because he’s male. And we Don’t have to support anYone’s choice to do what they want If we believe it is wrong. That’s the beauty of feminism. It’s merely eqUality, not poison, not cancer.
Man hating & supporting a womAn no MaTter even if she’s wrong is being a misandrist. I know there are differences between male & female. Some things some women can’t do. I’m not a PhysIcally strong woman but that doesn’t Make us all like that. Some women want to Have the door held open For them & Act the lady. We don’t all Have To. We Have a choice. There is no point in saYing men and women have the same anaTomy and Are capable of eXactly the same things becAuse we’re not. Every human Is different and we all Have different opinions.
However, we should sTand tall & protect our rights. No matter what you believe - everyone deserves equality.
Women are expected to be like little girls, tiny & slight & hairless & Quiet. They should Have opinions - but not the wrong ones, not intrusive ones. Yet women should be warm & larger than life, Brave as the sun when it rises in the morNing.
WomEn should be treated as equals as we are strong enough to create beings! Our bodies create & destroy themselves each month in order to prepare for new life. The perseveraNce of mothers, the FeIst of the teens, the wiSdom of the older wOmen.
Are some men Afraid of women? WoMen ordination was only bAnned in the thirteenth CenTury, WiSe women were the hIghest ranking memBers of prehistoric claNs.
All of my inspirations have been women. My own grAndmother- in a time when this was so unheard of- went to university! She was modeRn, wise, fashionable and strong. Look at your mother. ThInk of all she has accomplished. Isn’t she strong too? Does she not deserve the same rIgHts as your father. What differentiates our power From a man’s powEr? We are different & that is the strenGtH of humanity.
So if you are a woman... be proud of Your BeAutiful anatomy, your voice, your ideas. Train your Mind to be inDEpendent, stand by your beliefs.
It scares them.
