College has forced me to take a hard look at the way I’m treated as a woman and opened my eyes to institutional prejudices I had never even noticed because they are so pervasive. This is a blog about me trying to develop my own definition of womanhood, femininity, and feminism.
I used to think most feminists were ‘harpy bitches’ etc. because that really is the prevailing image of the movement. I used to think I was too cool for feminism.
This is not a ball-busting mission- I have a younger sister. In 2024, she will be my age and I do not want her to be objectified, sexualized and discounted the way I have been. I do not want her becoming a woman in a world where it is acceptable for girls like me, not even old enough to rent a car, to be treated with so much disrespect. I aim to drown myself, and my readers, in articles and links that uncover modern gender inequality, highlight women progressing the cause and share my on thoughts and stories.
