Feminism

 

Activism! This is where all the posts go when I pull out my soapbox and start preaching about something that means a lot to me. When I do this people usually label me with some type of “ism”; feminism, lactivism, informed consentism, liberalism, progressivism, etc. In these posts I imagine some will think I’m “bitchy” which, from what I can see, is what society calls women with an opinion. Go figure.

I think most of my writing is “feminist writing” but these posts are where I discuss it overtly.

Don’t forget to check out my feminism articles on Everyday Feminism!
