Why is feminism still relevant? In what ways are women still not equal to men?
During a conversation with my sister today, I had mentioned that I considered myself a feminist. She laughed and asked why; I said because I believe men and women should be treated equally and have the same rights and privileges. She laughed and asked what rights and privileges women didn’t have that men do. I embarrassingly drew a blank because I was sort of frustrated by her ignorance and have been sort of stumped over this for the past hour. Women can vote, they can work, more women are going to college than ever, the wage gap is not nearly closed yet but it is getting smaller and smaller.
So how can I prove her wrong? I know that there are a lot of ways that women are not yet equal to men, but I’m completely drawing a blank. Thanks!
