Why Is Feminism Important Today


Why Is Feminism Important Today?

1.) Females (half the population) still do not have equal access to society’s resources.
2.) Women need an identity that is not dependent (or compared to) the identity of men.
3.) Women need their own sphere so that they have the freedom to develop a sense of self-worth and utilize strengths/abilities which are undervalued or looked down upon by patriarchal society.
4.) Women need to educate each other about their bodies, away from the patriarchal assumptions of modern medicine.
5.) Women need to keep a check on modern ideologies and theorizing by doing critiques and holding patriarchal society accountable for its political, economic, and moral decisions.
6.) Women in developing countries continue to need support in many areas from women in more developed countries.
7.) Generally speaking, men still don’t really understand women…
8.) Women all over the world still aren’t treated equally to men. Some countries do not realize or care about this. If your a woman, you should care.
9.) Women’s studies should be in all colleges and universities, so women can learn more about feminism. (past and present) Women’s studies take a look at feminism, women’s issues, and other stuff affecting women.
10.) Women’s issues such as rape, incest, abortion, etc. (and more!) aren’t treated as important as they should be treated. There are certain issues pertaining to women only, such as those listed above.
