Why I Need Feminism

I need feminism because little girls grow up being afraid of dark streets and those who hide in the shadows.

I need feminism because my sister wants to diet because boys pick apart her body.

I need feminism because my sister is told that when a boy kicks her or pulls her hair, he likes her.

I need feminism because my sisters shouldn’t grow up in a world were violence is considered affection.

I need feminism because my sisters have the right to equal pay.

I need feminism because I don’t want my sisters growing up in a world where going to college means having to learn self defence.

I need feminism because 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.

I need feminism because when people hear of a rape they ask what the victim was wearing.

I need feminism because I want my sisters to be safe.
