Let’s rather laugh at the ironic, merciless and adorable bits of life that are perfectly represented in these posts shared “Girls are dating the internet.” The Instagram account has been entertaining its 98.7k followers since July 2017 and there seems to be no sign of stopping.
While you’re going through this list, I thought it might be interesting to delve a little into the concept of feminism—the belief in the social, economic, and political equality of the sexes. As stated on Encyclopedia Britannicafeminism is manifested throughout the world and is represented by various institutions committed to working for the rights and interests of women.
Although many people today tend to misunderstand its purpose, few look into the history that started it all. For most of Western history, women were confined to the domestic sphere, while public life was reserved for men. As recently as the early 20th century, women in Europe and most of the United States could not vote or hold elected office.
Women were prevented from running a business without a male representative. Married women could not exercise control over their own children without their husbands’ permission. In addition, women had limited or no access to education and were barred from most professions. In some parts of the world, such restrictions on women continue to this day.
Feminism is not a modern thing. In late 14th and early 15th century France, the first feminist philosopher Christine de Pisan challenged prevailing attitudes toward women with a bold call for female education. The defense of women became a literary subgenre in the late 16th century with the posthumous publication of Il merito delle donne (1600; The Worth of Women), a feminist broadside by another Venetian author, Moderata Fonte.
As further explained at Encyclopedia Britannicadefenders of the status quo depicted women as shallow and inherently immoral, while emerging feminists produced long lists of women of courage and achievement and claimed that women would be intellectually equal to men if given equal access to education.
Equality is the main word in the equation (although there are certain aspects that are also misunderstood with the term), with an emphasis on oppression. At the heart of it all Feminist theory argues that women should have the same rights as men, including the right to speech, religion, bodily autonomy, and political expression.
Simply put, feminism is a the movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation and oppression. And although the misinterpretation of this fact presents men as the main enemy, this is simply not the case, because feminism embodies equality for all. Yet Joshua Evans asked an interesting question: “Can true equality be achieved when half the population can’t help, or will feminism lose its way if it is dominated by male voices?
Studies show that in more gender-equal societies, men are half as likely to be depressed, less likely to commit suicide, about 40% less likely to die a violent death, and even less likely to suffer from chronic back pain. In an equal society, social problems such as sexual assault and domestic violence against men may be considered more serious.
Feminism has also allowed men to take longer maternity leave and be full-time parents, thus combating “breadwinner” stereotypes. These are a few examples of what feminism can and still does for men. And it’s up to men to support it in any way they can.
We still have a long way to go to realize feminist ideals, but I am confident that sooner rather than later we will evolve as a society that embraces, respects and is there for each other. . In the meantime, here are some universal rules The girl’s code.
If a girl needs a tampon and you have a tampon, help her. If you notice that the girl is too drunk to see straight, give her some water and help her to safety as needed. If you see someone harassing or unintentionally touching a girl, help her. If the girl is crying, make sure everything is fine. Finally, passing judgment on others isn’t fair, we girls need to stick together.
