I’m loving these videos from I’m Feminist Enough, a project created by Shannon Washington. In it, black women who consider themselves feminists, give us their mantras and their life codes.
To me, feminism is realizing that women have value and worth as much as men. It’s the willingness to speak up and out about sexist oppression. Feminism is also a rebellion against misogyny, sexist stereotypes, and a life controlled by others. It is not a “I hate men” nor an “all women should be lesbians” ideology. It’s simply about realizing your worth and recognizing where it truly comes from.
Therefore, I’m feminist enough to express how I feel, demand what I want, dress and walk the way I desire, and not to care about what people think!!!! And I can’t wait to have and raise a few little mini feminists of my own, when I determine it’s time to.
