“Gender equality isn’t about conforming to a masculine ideal but accepting the idea that both masculinity and femininity are equal.”
“There’s that misconception that feminists want to be perceived in the way where we don’t want to shave our legs or armpits. But the thing is, you’re as much of a feminist as someone who does shave their legs and armpits.”
“I rebelled in high school and became anti-religious. That’s why I’m a feminist.”
“Feminism is about equality among all people. Among sexes and genders not just for women. It’s a broad term for all different peoples that are deserving of equality.”
“I think the point of feminism is not to just body slam you with one side of the story, but give you the freedom of choice. True feminism respects all women’s choices, even if it’s something you personally disagree with.”
Paige Mac Millan, a junior at UCLA, considers herself a feminist. However, she did not always have these strong feelings toward gender equality.
