Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to those for men.

LOTS of controversy over this, esp. after Miss America last week. Heres my two bits. Scholarship pageants are NOT about the objectification of women, unattainable standards, etc. I love the Miss America system because yes, its about looking fit and beautiful onstage, but its far more about the confidence and personality you showcase onstage rather than the way your makeup looks. You have to be well rounded- talented, personable, intelligent, with a strong platform. Miss America is a JOB of service and volunteerism. Thats what feminism is about. Building each other up. Chasing dreams. Proving women can be both beautiful AND intelligent and accomplish so much. I truly think the traits these women possess make them feminist icons.

We need feminism because it is still acceptable for a woman's clothing choice to be the cause of her rape. We need feminism because girls as young as 11 and 12 years old are being sexualized because their breasts, which are arguably not sex organs, came in early. We need feminism because a woman sleeping with however many men she wants causes her to be degraded and called awful names while if a man does it he is applauded. We need feminism because we are still not equal in 2015 and that is a problem.
