Here's the ninth and latest post of Feminism Through Your Eyes Project. You can submit your ideas here or send me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . You can find more information here. Feminism is such an important topic and the project was doing so well until the last week. Please keep submitting, it's really important!
"I am a feminist because there are men out there who think women don't masturbate or shit or fucking have their periods."
"i am a feminist because my uncles still walk me home even though i live down the street from them and i’m almost 15 when they wouldn’t do that for my cousins who are guys and 3 years younger than me
i am a feminist because my mom tells me i will never be taken seriously in the professional world unless i wear make-up
i am a feminist because my teachers pass the football players and not the volleyball players
i am a feminist because the people who work at nike say only boys feet should stink and not girls
i am a feminist because my mom doesn’t get paid as much as other male teachers
i am a feminist because my sister always gets second chair in band just because she’s a girl
i am a feminist because people still take being called a girl as an insult
i am a feminist because i am expected to always look nice and presentable everywhere i go
i am a feminist because my cousin didn’t get her promotion because the manager thought she’d “ruin the reputation”, even though she’s done more for the business than all of her male colleagues
i am a feminist because my dad still thinks that all women belong in the kitchen

Due to the lack of submissions, this project might go on an indefinete hiatus. To stop this, keep sending submissions and remember: every word counts.
