Never Too Young! Third Wave Feminists

FEMINISM: MYTH VS. FACT

Unfortunately, the word “feminist” comes with a lot of misconceptions. Many people, who share the same beliefs and values as feminists, do not consider themselves feminists because of these fallacies. Let’s take a look at some of these misconceptions and challenge them by learning the facts.
 
Myth: Feminism is about fighting men, hating men, and eliminating men.
Fact: Feminism is about challenging systemic inequalities and does not portray men as the enemy.
 
Myth: “Feminist” is the female equivalent of “chauvinist.”
Fact: Feminism does not support sexism against either gender. Feminism works towards equality, not female superiority.
 
Myth: Feminists are opposed to marriage and motherhood.
Fact: Feminists actively fight for the rights of mothers and many feminists are married and have children. Feminists recognize that happy families are important and believe that families are strengthened when the well-being of all members, male and female, are supported.
 
Myth: Only women can be feminists.
Fact: Any person who believes in gender equality is a feminist. Many men are feminists and proud to be so.
 
Myth: There is no more need for feminism. Women have the right to vote. They have jobs. The goals have been met.
Fact: These achievements are great milestones in the history of feminism; however, the aim is nothing less than equal treatment and opportunity for both genders. There are still many inequalities in society’s perception of the roles of men and women. Feminists want to build a world in which no person, because of their gender, must limit their hopes and dreams.
