This is the 8th post of Feminism Through Your Eyes Project. It's mindblowing how well the project took off, I honestly thought three of my friends would write something and it would be over but this is going so well. I hope you enjoy reading these! Please keep them coming. Here's where you can send in your submissions. You can find more information right here. You can also send in submission via my mail adress: email@example.com "I need feminism because my grandmother told me that women should not aspire as high as men. She told me that women are meant to do chores while men provide for the family. When I questioned this, I was reprimanded and told that “that’s just the way it works.”
I need feminism because my family got mad at me for talking about the inequality between the two genders. He said that the bible teaches women to submit. He questioned my faith in the same religion because I was standing up for women’s rights. I need feminism because I was told by my uncle that if I were to ride the public train wearing something revealing, I was “asking for trouble” and anything that happened to me would be “my fault.” I’m 15, and these things were told to me before I understood the concept of feminism. Women should not be taught that they should accept the treatment just because “the world works that way."
I hope ya'll enjoyed it and as I said keep them coming! I don't have a lot of submissions left so unless I get some new ones, this project ends. Please send in your submissions even if it is just a sentence because it's worth it.
