this group sounds so good! i wish we had something like that on campus

i  was really happy when i found out about its been really fun so far just getting to know the people in it

finally told my dad I joined  the feminist group on campus and first thing he told me was to not to get brainwashed by the liberals  which I mean not the greatest comment but honestly I was expecting worse based on his usual rants so yeah that went better than expected and now I’m just really excited about the first meeting tonight

Her - 2012 

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
