Fabulous females sharing their feelings when it comes to feminism.
So for the past week/week and half, I was able to interview three female students about their opinions on the feminist movement. I know what you are probably thinking, I should have asked a male what he thinks of the movement. I’m not against males speaking about or showing support about the movement, but I needed female’s opinions on the matter because this is a movement started by them.
So, the first interviewee is Meghann. She is a senior at La Salle and is vocal when it comes to the movement. One of the points she brings when it comes to how the movement could improve on is to denounce the extremist of the movement.
I do agree with her, the extremist do hurt the movement and like how Meghann said, the movement can’t move forward until those extremist are either corralled in or denounced for their behavior.
The second person who I interviewed was Tamirah. She is a junior at La Salle University. She says the movement is doing fine, but needs to work on being more inclusive when it comes to issues that minorities face.
She brings up a valid point, the movement spends too much time on obstacles white woman face and not much on minorities. There has to be more acknowledgement of their issues. This means acknowledging that yes white women’s issues may not be hardest. I don’t enjoy saying theirs isn’t important because everyone’s struggles are valid, but they can’t be the center of the movement all the time.
Last to speak is Alexis, who is a junior at La Salle University. She makes the point that the movement should branch out and work with other organization to better help everyone. Which is a noble idea because this movement isn’t just about women. Even though this movement is about females doesn’t mean it can’t help other movements.
Feminism is a vital movement that we are in desperate need of in this day in age. Whether you think it is doing enough or not, it is doing something. If you think it is not doing enough, get up and do something. Make the change. You have a voice, just speak. You don’t need someone to say what you feel for you. You do it yourself.
Also, just because you have the “loudest” voice and want to be a voice for those who don’t have a voice doesn’t mean you understand. It is noble of you to want to help and everything and please keep helping but remember to pass this metaphorical microphone to the other millions of females who are waiting to make their voice heard. Everyone has a story, let everyone’s voices be heard.
Here is all three interviews that I conducted!
