Being a Feminist (5)

12 Nov

I believe in equal pay for equal work. I don’t believe legislation is the answer. We need to teach our daughters that it is okay to ask. Girls don’t need to be boys, but we need them to have a sense of self worth. We need to not label them “bitches” when they speak up. If a behavior is celebrated in a man, why shouldn’t it be celebrated in a woman? And if it isn’t appropriate behavior for a woman, why is it appropriate for a man? The double standard is a societal construct and can’t be removed with legislation.
