Why Feminism is Necessary
"I have realized that fighting for women's rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating" (Watson).
"I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decision-making of my country." (Watson).
"No country in the world can yet say they have achieved gender equality." (Watson).
Fathers less important than Mothers
Men with mental illness unimportant
change legal status of women (UXL Biographies)
change the way women were viewed in society
1848, Stanton wrote the Seneca Falls Declaration of Sentiments
1868, Stanton and Anthony created the independent National Women Suffrage Association
1881-1886, both published the
History of Women Suffrage
1. Are there more people with the belief that feminism is about women being stronger than men or gender equality?
2. Guys: Do you not share your feelings because it is emasculate?
3. Girls: Do you always share your feelings because it is feminine?
4. Is it Women vs World or Women vs their body?
5. What about women makes them weaker than men?(in all standpoints)
