We write about feminism a lot here, because it’s something that is incredibly important to us. But no matter how often we write about it, and how matter how much we explain it, it still seems like a lot of you are confused on what feminism is. Instead of focusing on the basic definition of feminism – which is that men and women should be equal – you focus on the stereotypes surrounding feminism. You focus on the misrepresentation of feminists as a bunch of angry, bra-burning women who hate men and never shave.
Because so many of you still think the wrong thing about feminism, you get pretty angry about our posts about it. Sure, there are plenty of you who understand the real meaning, and who get what we’re trying to say. And we love you for that! But we really want all of you to understand and stand behind gender equality, because it is SO important. So, here are 26 of our best posts about feminism that might make you angry… in one way or another.
