Feminism nowadays is equivalent to a bad word. How such an important movement and term went on to become so wrongly misunderstood? Feminism according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary literally means and I quote” the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.”
Here “equality of sexes includes both men and women, but its high time to consider and start a talk about equality between men, women and also transgender. It means in simple terms that equal rights given to all irrespective of their gender.
Feminism is not about being anti-male or male bashing. Its about starting a conversation about our deep rooted patriarchy system and absurd theories that has to be changed. Like men also face sexual harassment. Consent is not gender subjective.
A man’s “No” is also a no. Maternal rape is still a rape. And denying transgender their basic right to work and quality of living shouldn’t be a question still.
Dear men, women and transgenders, we are all in this together.
