Why Should We All Be Feminists?
The premise of feminism is on equal opportunity.
What is Feminism?
“Feminism is the belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes. We believe that women should have the same rights, power, and opportunities as men. Feminism is not anti-men; it is pro-women” - Bellona
It simply means that women want the same rights as men. The right to choose a career and the same access to jobs, education and associations. It includes equal compensation for the same job. According to labour statistics in South Africa, men still earn 23% to 35% more than women. Equality is also the expectation to be treated like the person sitting next to you. Anything less is unacceptable. Equality should be at the core of the global economy because we depend on new ideas from all innovators, regardless of sex, age, or religion.
