About

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.

  1. It sounds like we are from two different planets but I hope you are open minded and take my sage advice. Run away from radical feminism as fast as you can. Read my post- Radical feminisms true legacy, being single, sidelined and 60 sucks! Thanks for following my blog and God bless your journey.

    • Unfortunately, I think it’s pretty apparent we’re from the same planet. I’m not a radical feminist, nor do I promote radical feminism. I don’t even know what you mean by radical feminism actually, because I think our definitions are probably pretty different. I believe in equality and if that gets me sidelined and single at 60 I am very ok with that. Following your blog was actually an accident- thanks for the advice, but we are on two very different journeys.

      • Radical feminism is best avoided as it generally goes with trans-hatred (except for Twisty Faster, who is a brilliant exception). Yes, but the above comment seems to be saying the only alternative to radfem is antifeminism. Feminism is not responsible for you being “sidelined” cqduane.
