5 Misconceptions of Feminism
Feminism: An invitation to men
MYth #1
Feminism = feminazi
: The derogatory term
has become synonymous with feminism. Coined in the early 90's, it refers to a radical feminist. A woman that supposedly "hates men, wears no bras, and is practically intolerant of any point of view."

This term is far from the perspective of feminism. Feminism has no discrimination to male population. Feminists support equality and equity.

BTW: it's
not feminazi
Myth #2
Women are equal now, there is no need for feminism or a feminist movement
While women have made great strides, women unfortunately continue to be paid less than men, job opportunities continue to discriminate against mothers, and women continue to be responsible for most of the household work.(Men average 7 hours while women average 14 hours)

Feminism seeks equality between every gender, class, race, and sexual orientation.
Myth #3
Women can't be feminine and be a feminist at the same time
The purpose of feminism is not to limit women's self-expression but to fundamentally give women choices. It is quite common to see women behaving in a traditionally feminine manner while still identifying themselves as feminists.
Myth #4
Feminism only liberates women at the expense of men

Feminism doesn't just breakdown stereotypes for women, but for men too!

Men are pressured by society to never show weakness such as crying or being sad. Instead men must "be macho and emotionless".

Feminism encourages men to show weakness, be followers, and show their emotions.

Myth #5
feminism is only for women

As stated before, feminism is a multicultural cause in which
and women unite to combat racism, sexism, classism, ageism, etc.

newspaper print
former page 3 models or "glamour models"
backlash against no more page 3
These are Youtube comments and twitter comments referring to No More Page 3 video and campaign. Notice the constant attacks against changing social attitudes about media potrayal of oversexualizing women. Constant attacks on feminists portrayed as misandrists. NoMorePage3.org counters all these arguments.
frequently asked questions from no more page 3
*Questions in red are the most common FAQs and comments addressed by the online community against No More Page 3
Who is behind No More Page 3?
So why are you trying to get Page Three banned?
Why do you want to see an end to page 3?
What right do you have to tell a commercial business how it should run? Surely if Sun readers were so disgusted by Page 3 they would stop buying it?
Is this campaign prudish/ Are you anti-sex/Are you offended by bare breasts?
Is there any political or religious affiliation behind No More Page Three?
So...if you don't like it, don't buy it...
You are just jealous because you don't look like the women on Page 3!
Do you want to get rid of all pornography?
Surely page 3 is not important. Why don't you concentrate on getting rid of online/ hardcore pornography?
Nobody is forcing these women to model for Page 3. Aren't you going to put glamour models out of a job when they are only trying to make a living?
Haven't you got bigger problems to think about? World hunger, war, climate change...by comparison, this is trivial, you should stop wasting time on it.
I bet if it was half-naked, sexy men on Page Three you wouldn't complain/ What about torso of the week/the diet coke advert?
Is Page Three really harming anybody/surely it's just a bit of fun?

HOw are men viewing women in the u.s.?

This is a young men's lifestyle magazine known as Maxim. Ask yourself:
Do we see any similarities from "The Experiment"?
How are the women presenting themselves?
What kind of lifestyle does this sell to young men?
In addition to No more page 3 Faqs, revisit their reasons why page 3 has to go
No More Page 3 makes it clear that:

• *CONTEXT* We love breasts! And have nothing against the women who choose to show them, we simply feel that a family newspaper is the wrong context for these images.

• *EQUAL REPRESENTATION* all we are really asking is that women be represented with respect in the newspaper, rather like men are.

in media
Well, I’ve never gone into a strip club and thrown money, so I couldn’t tell you. I guess trying to understand that there are other avenues, there are other ways you can make money, that women can do anything they want in this world. You can go out there and be a CEO of a company. Like I said before, the same can be said for kids in the inner city -- the ceiling is limitless and don’t limit yourself to those possibilities and those circumstances.

We Should All Be Feminists
by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

"Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that?" Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general - but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women. That the problem was not about being human, but specifically about being a female human. For centuries, the world divided human beings into two groups and then proceeded to exclude and oppress one group. It is only fair that the solution to the problem acknowledge that. "
Everyday Sexism

by Laura Bates
"[from her website everydaysexism.com] We heard from a guy whose walking past a building site when two builders screamed to two women on the other side of the road 'get your tits out!' so he [the guy witness] lifted up his t-shirt instead...We heard from a man say he never really thought about harassment before but after reading stories from the website it made him have a completely new insight into what it actually felt like for women and the next time he saw another guy harassing women in the street, he ran after them and tapped him on the shoulder and said, 'Sorry, can I just ask you why did you do that?' and the other guy had no answer because he's never been answered that question before because it was just normal because he had grown up in a world where that was normal and just something men do."
The Slut, the Spinster and the Perfect Woman
by Martha Mosse
"The label slut, spinster, and perfect woman are common phrases; they offend, limit, and intimidate women. They take away the power and pass along the control. Blatant sexist messages contained in each are so ingrained that most people, are unaware of the hurt, fear, and isolation that they bring."

Why feminism?
....explained by terry crews
"We’re battling a mindset.. It’s like cutting a tree down by the leaves -- it just grows back... The tree needs to come down and nobody’s getting at the stump and the stump is a mindset that people feel they’re more valuable than each other. And that’s what I’m attacking."
''[In regards to Mancode] What are you doing?! It's man code, dude. Man code! C'mon!'" But as Crews pointed out, "Does man code work when it's your daughter who gets raped? Man code -- does that work when your mom gets abused?"
"What happens is they [men] win and they go, 'You know that girl? She's my trophy. I deserve that girl. In fact, she don't even want to be with me, but I don't care. I'm going to take it.' What kind of mindset is that? Never never never never never should that ever be accepted. That's not 'code.' "
"I did some serious thinking about the world that they’re coming up in. I want my girls to have every opportunity to do whatever they want,"
"You look at the women in your life -- that’s the best way to think of it," he said. "Most men see the women outside their homes as somehow different from their moms or their sisters. It’s the weirdest thing. The person they’re trying to sleep with and then run out of there -- that’s somebody’s mom, or sister, or daughter that someone cares about."
The Sexy Lie
Synopsis: A leading advocate for spotlighting how the mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America, Caroline Heldman offers straight talk and an often-startling look at the objectification of women in our society. She illustrates how it has escalated, how we have become inured to its damaging effects and what we can do individually and collectively to demolish the paradigms that keep us from a better world.
You're not alone
"For guys, if you did wrong, if you were that way, I get it. I was that guy, too. And along with apologies, you have to begin to make amends. … The smartest, most wonderful people in my life have been women. They’ve always shown me things that I never saw before. … What happens in society when women are marginalized and not respected is that the smartest people are there, but you don’t use them. … To me, you can’t say you’re a champion until you let everybody play.
