Feminism: Then Vs. Now

by Julie Borowski

Feminism has changed quite a bit over the years:

“Then” feminism =

Women should be allowed to vote. Stop treating us like second class citizens.
It’s unfair that we have to submit to laws, yet we have no voice in the political process.
Women should be allowed to own property and sign contracts.
Women should be able to keep any money we make or inherit, instead of being the property of our husbands.
Women should be allowed to attend college, if we choose to.

“Now” feminism =

I’m a proud slut!
Complaining about the media objectifying and hypersexualing women while dressed in slut walk gear.
I’m growing out armpit hair to smash the patriarchy!
And I’m free, free bleeding!
RAPE CULTURE RAPE CULTURE EVERYTHING IS RAPE CULTURE
