March 8th is International Women's Day; a day to celebrate how far we've come, and a day to bring to the spotlight how far we still have to go.
Unfortunately, it's also a day that people say we don't need; that women are equal and feminism is a load of rubbish. I'm disappointed when I hear that from women.
So, I'm curious, do you identify as a feminist? If not, why not?

Yep I sure do. Why? Bc I believe men and women should be treated equally. That is the very definition of what feminism is.
As to those that say women are equal and it's a load of rubbish - IME those people are usually the very ones who don't believe in or treat women equally and ironically are the very essence of why feminism is still relevant!

I definitely do!

Yes I am. Because equality matters and we're not there yet.

I saw this on facebook today and thought about how so many of these views still exist in society today (especially if you read the comments section in articles!)

According to the Wikipedia definition yes I am/do.
Do I think more needs to be done to encourage equal opportunities and respect in society? Yes, absolutely.
Does this mean I think people should be paid the same regardless of their individual skills and experience? No. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1457430921.292623.jpg
