Feminism as told by a Feminist

According to Dictionary.com, feminism is defined as the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.

However, feminism still means a lot of things to different people.

There’s some people who say that they’re not feminists because they like to promote equal rights for both genders, not just women. I believe that equality for both sexes is unrealistic because each respective gender has its own qualms and cannot fall under the same category.

In this video, Laci Green of the Sex Plus YouTube series talks about how how feminism is still relevant today. After watching Laci’s video, you can refer to these links for more information on the facts she talks about and on women, themselves.
