What The Hell Does Feminism Mean Anyway?

Published

Feminism

Feminism. Some people cringe at the word, some stand by it firmly and many do not understand its definition. There is such a negative connotation associated with this word, that I feel its true purpose and meaning are masked by radical beliefs and unfair assumptions. There are types of feminists who push this word to its breaking point by demanding that women are above men, instead of equal to them. Women who blame unequal treatment solely on men and who take no responsibility for their own actions.

On the flip-side, there are men who turn away from this loosely defined term and see it as women pinning all of their problems on men. With all of this confusion and haphazard definitions floating around, the true meaning and overall purpose can be lost in the shuffle.

Feminism is defined as follows:

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.

Feminism can, to many, be a polarizing term that keeps people from seeing the true potential behind the word. Women still fight for the right to vote, the right to dress as they please and even the right to drive cars. We’re in 2018 and just this year, women in Saudi Arabia can finally drive, legally.

Young girls grow up in a world where their education comes to a halt at a very young age or never even begins. Developing their minds and allowing their ideas and dreams to prosper isn’t even considered. Women are not allowed to have the simple pleasure and freedom of being able to drive a vehicle. Young girls are married off because they aren’t viewed of being capable of being able to make an educated decision. Voices are ignored and ideas are not taken seriously by women who want a say in how the country they live in is run.

People usually don’t get the term “feminst”. They usually think it means that a woman who says she’s a feminist then she doesn’t need a man in her life and that she’s psychologically complex when in fact, feminism is just a term used for equality.

For instance, why do women products cost way more than men products, when in fact we all know that a woman’s salary is way less than a man’s?

Why can’t women rise to big positions easily without dedicating her whole life working but men can do it easily?

Why is it okay for men to walk in the street normally at midnight but women are called “sluts” when they do and usually they don’t feel safe?

So many questions but none of them are answered that’s why feminism is out there to solve all these questions.

That’s why we’ve got the term feminism to help women out there to shine and show their power.

We’ve established that women clearly earn less than men even though they work as hard as men, and work for the same duration. Imagine only earning 10 EGP per day and having to buy a product as essential as menstrual pads for 20 EGP, doesn’t make sense right? While women are struggling to completely crash the patriarchy, they have to work more, earn less, and pay more.

We have to stop paying more for women products just because it’s pink.

So, feminism isn’t about hating on men but it’s about being equal for both genders.

It is time to see what feminism truly means and what the impact of support could to do generations of girls. It shouldn’t be viewed at as synonymous with man-hating, but instead viewed as something that requires the support of every gender in order to be successful in its true nature. I quote Emma Watson when I write “-and if you still hate the word—it is not the word that is important but the idea and the ambition behind it.”

Nadia Haitham, who is a sixteen year old teenager, fantasizes and creates images in people’s minds using written words. She has always admired the idea of writing ever since she was a little girl with piggy tails and somehow, she’s chasing her dream! Nadia is currently an IGCSE student in The Continental School Of Cairo and she’s in the eleventh grade. They say Nadia is too young but she asks repeatedly, “if I don’t start now, then when?!” She blows her candles on the fifteenth of July, her zodiac sign is Cancer and she’s Egyptian. In 2015, she has written her first completed book that’s called, “Love Of A Teenage Girl” which is published on a writing website called, Wattpad. She has won several awards for the book which she’s planning to publish in the future. Nadia has also written a few other books and created quotes of her own but she hasn’t completed them yet but she’s planning to. She’s into music and learning something new every single day using the help of the social media world. She believes that writing is an underestimated art, it’s exactly like painting colorful images in people’s minds by using words of black and white.
