The "women's movement" is no new thing; for decades, women have been fighting to uplift themselves from the oppressions that societies and cultures enforce. Why are girls taught to look pretty just for boys? Why are boys told, "Be a man!"? These questions have repeatedly been asked, and the answers are quite obvious. It is so deeply rooted in our society that women are inferior to men, homosexuals inferior to heterosexuals, blacks inferior to whites, etc. (the list can go on). The women's movement consists of strong, powerful individuals, including all races, classes, and sexualities. We all face both similar and different struggles. We stay strong by recognizing others' oppressions in addition to our own. We don't fight for what is right only for ourselves; we fight for every individual who feels that they are not enough.
I am a Gender & Sexuality Studies major, learning more about how different cultures enforce ideologies and norms. I analyze our society, how we function, how we treat each other, and WHY. Have you thought about patriarchy? Have you thought about why the husband is usually the breadwinner? And why we attach such a stigma to same sex relationships? What is normal is only normal because we are brainwashed to think that way. Women who are strong and powerful are breaking boundaries and showing the world that they don't have to follow any sort of "normal agenda or criteria." Like I said, the women's movement is no new thing. But I feel that we are realizing and learning new ways to create change. Take a look at society and your culture, who is at the top of the hierarchy? Who is at the bottom? Just think.
Can we recognize that we, women, are a class in itself? And how can we be a class for itself? It’s one thing to associate with 4 other women, but it’s a whole other thing to associate yourself with all of the women around the world. I want women to step in each others’ shoes; we’re all so different that we all have different experiences. See what others have to say…we live in a time where women’s voices have been louder than ever. I feel that we need to recognize that the women’s movement is not JUST for women; it’s also for members of the LGBTQ community.
