"That day, I learned that I could be a giver simply by bringing a smile to another person. The ensuing years have taught me that a kind word or a vote of support can be a charitable gift. I can move over and make another place for another to sit. I can turn my music up if it pleases, or down if it is annoying.
I may never be known as a philanthropist, but I certainly want to be known as charitable." I feel so empowered thanks to you @oursharedshelf #mayaangelou#momandmeandmom#oursharedself#feminism#lebepur
Para comprender mejor...
El libro más dificil de leer, pero también el de la literatura más interesante.
Feminism is not about you. It never has been, and it never will be.
It isn't about putting down one gender in favour of another. It's not about demanding special rights or treatment. It's not about wanting the best of both worlds or saying we're so close to not needing feminism because our own world vision seems so fair.
Feminism is about equality. Equality for every woman, and every girl, around the world. A feminist believes that a nine-year-old girl shouldn't be sold into prostitution. A feminist believes that women have the right to model for page 3. A feminist believes that women can wear a burka. A feminist believes a girl should have as much chance to be an astronaut as any other. A feminist believes that a woman has as much right to feed her child in public as a child can eat a sandwich. A feminist believes that feminine hygiene products should not be classed as a luxury. A feminist believes a woman can look however she wants, achieve whatever she wants, and be whoever she wants. Feminism is about saying there should be no difference between how men and women are treated.
