    I’m a feminist too – older than you so I remember when girls were encouraged to be cheerleaders not athletes. Sometimes it feels like we’re going back in time. Women have power and we need to hold on to that. Equality for all is freedom for all!
    Thanks for another good post.

      You’re welcome, I was hesitant to write it because I do understand that I come from a unique and rosy perspective. I have many feminist men in my life and have never been in a work environment that was hostel or unjust to me as a woman (although I am all too aware that they exist in large numbers). The cheerleader thing and the issue of sexualizing women in the media is a post for another day!

  2. Great post. I think that’s so key – the ability to make a CHOICE about what roles you want to take on. I actually enjoy cooking, so it makes sense that I would do most of it at home. My husband actually enjoys fixing things with tools, so it makes sense that he would do those type of things.

      YES! Exactly, the acknowledgement of choice was definitely an objective for the post, so glad that came across.

  3. It’s also in our best feminist interests to VOTE like feminists. Great post, Faith, we fought the fight so your daughters wouldn’t have to. We can’t afford to lose the gains we’ve made in the last two generations.

    I meant to tell you yesterday how much I loved this post! Great job articulating feminism for our generation.

  5. I know I’m a few months late on this post, but I just found it, and I have to say… I agree 100%! Everything you said is everything I’ve been thinking for years. And now it makes me so much less confused about whether it’s “okay” to be a feminist AND a homemaker. Thank you!! 🙂
