Radical Notions November 16, 2016

I wrote the text below as a response to another blogger’s very insightful and important thoughts about feminism.  I realized later that  my response had its own weight and wisdom.

I have always loved the tee shirt that reads “Feminism: The Radical Notion that Women are People.” We often forget the simplicity of feminism and that there are indeed many fine, feminist men in the world– I happen to be married to one and have others in my life. With the crazy ways the world is currently turning, it is more and more important that women AND men who think that women and girls are indeed people who deserve to follow their dreams, earn a fair living, make active choices about partners and children, have their personal autonomy and bodily integrity respected let go of the fears and myths surrounding the word and proudly claim the title “feminist.”
