    Me, because I want to live in a better world and I want my children to live in a better world.

    Any woman who says she is anti-feminist should forgo:
    - her right to vote.
    - her right to bodily autonomy including any recourse to the law if she is raped or abused by her husband
    - her right to receive the same pay as a man for doing the same work
    - her right to attend higher education or be employed as a police officer, pilot, etc
    - her right to own property
    etc (the list is long, very VERY long)

    I need feminism because I work in a female dominated industry because I'm awesome at it, not because I'm female! I need feminism because I'm the mother of two little boys who will most likely be husbands and fathers one day.

    (Not 'hating men, hating feminine clothing/style, and advocating against shaving underarms and legs'
    )

    So yeah, if someone says they don't believe in feminism, according to the above definition, it can be assumed they are against equality for men and women.

    I love men. I have 9 brothers

    WAF... what the f*^k are they on?? I feel sick just reading the headings of their articles. Teaching your kids not to follow their dreams?? You can be a good Christian without denying yourself everything, good grief! And you can be a great mother & partner without being a doormat/slave/zombie.

    I need feminism because:
    -we haven't achieved equality yet;
    -I don't want DD to ever be made to feel she isn't as good as someone else because of her sex.
