Bringing Back Feminism – It Isn't What You Think It Means

+Caitlin Moran is quoted in this +The New York Times article:

The word “feminism,” Moran said, has for some reason gone off the rails to connote, incorrectly, preachy humorlessness and grim separatism. “When I talk to girls, they go, ‘I’m not a feminist,’ ” she said. “And I say: ‘What? You don’t want to vote? Do you want to be owned by your husband? Do you want your money from your job to go into his bank account? If you were raped, do you still want that to be a crime? Congratulations: you are a feminist.’ ”

  1. We fully support strong, independent and healthy women in all aspects of life. However, we agree that the word "feminism" has a negative connotation

  3. I take it as being completely opposite to male chauvinist (which I really disagree with) I believe no human is superior to any other human and if it comes down to defend women rights, children and basically all unprotected ones, they can call me all they want "I will be there" :)

  5. Part of who we are is helping give women the opportunity to be a businesswoman and still be a family woman. Who says we can't have both?

  7. I've always thought of the term feminism as something positive. As much as those who work so hard to give it a bad connotation (looking at you, Rush Limbaugh).

    "I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat." Rebecca West

  11. I'm a feminist and proud of it.

    There will always be those who take views to the extreme but any woman who supports having choices or rights is a feminist. For every college educated woman, every female voter, every single one that chooses, not forced, to stay at home and nurture their children are feminists. We are united by our rights, not by our decisions.
