Feminists are not just women!

Men listen up! True Feminism applies to men as well.

Do your research!

Men, the fact of the matter is that most people do not know the origin of feminism as we know it today. Feminism has been twisted and turned into different sub-genres that can be confusing for those trying to support females around the world. What you may not know is that feminism has its roots more than a hundred years before the Suffragette movement, and that was a hundred years before our era! The brave woman who started these feminist movements was none other than Mary Wollstonecraft.

Inform and Educate Yourselves

The Vindication of the Rights of Women has to be one of the most underrated pieces of literature from its time period. It gives the basis for what most people define feminism to be. Wollstonecraft was a hundred years before her time, but there is a new energy given to the feminist movement today. Men, it is important to know what women want, because we have the responsibility to make change happen for the ladies that have worked just as much or even more than we have in our lives. Women are more independent than ever, and most men don't really know what their message is. Take it upon ourselves to go back to the basics and start to employ the feminist messages in our lives as well.

The Basis Starts at Education, and It Flows Into Everyday LIfe

Mary Wollstonecraft wanted to make education equal for everyone, man or woman. Yet, in her masterpiece, A Vindication Of the Rights of Women, she sets a tone that it should not just be in education. Her life is a call for equality that few can emulate. Educate yourselves men, and fight for what is right; the equality of women in every aspect of our lives.
