Dear Feminist, Here’s How To Politely Tell Them To ‘Shut The Eff Up!’

“I love having the door opened for me, and I love being taken to dinner, but isn’t that just politeness?” – Emma Watson 

Emma Watson is many things – a British actress, model, activist and a feminist. To her, feminism is not about giving a powerful speech or starting the #HeForShe campaign. Feminism is the movement to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes, the need for which arises because women are (still) considered beneath men. It’s a fight for equality of men and women in all spheres of life whether it’s voting rights, equal pay or a simple job opportunity. Not man-hating!
