Feminism Of The Fifties

The Journey Of Women's Rights

Feminism, What is it?

Feminism, it's like air! You can't see it, but it's everywhere. All around you. For example, our teacher, Ms. C! She wouldn't be able to work here at this school, much less keep her earnings, as they would all go to her husband. And say, all the girls that go to this school. They wouldn't be here either! (I know right?!) Girls weren't aloud to go to school, and they were thought to be inferior to men! (Of course not true!) Feminism is in most cases thought to be about belittling men, which is not true! So, what is feminism?

When did feminism start?

Feminism became a more widespread idea in the late 1840s. Gender equality was also something that became more and more popular as the years go on. Now, we have women in Supreme Court! "Wikipedia"

Are there famous feminists?

Yes. The answer is yes. Lots of them. Lorde? Feminist. Taylor Swift? Feminist. Katy Perry? Feminist. There are many,many famous singers and or song writers that are feminists. Which shows how popular the idea of gender equality really is! "Huffington Post, ELLE"

What do feminists do?

Feminists are typically thought of as being hostile, and doing a lot of protests. But that,is just a stereotype. Feminism: The idea that all men and women should be equal in political, economic, and social categories. "What Is Feminism"

Why does feminism matter?

Without feminism, I wouldn't be here. If your a girl, you wouldn't either. Ms. Doma, Ms. C, they either wouldn't be here, wouldn't be treated the same as Mr. Lott or Mr. Angel, or wouldn't be payed equally. They still aren't, but it's a whole lot better than it used to be. So that's why feminism matters. For you, for me, and for everyone. "Prezi.com"

Why was feminism created?

Feminism was created to help women everywhere. It does help, as most people are unaware of. We could not vote. We could not go to school. We could not have a good job. What do all of these things have in common? none of them are still true. Do you know why? Because of feminism. "Gender. Cawater"
