Why I Need Feminism - A photo Essay

The word "Feminism" or "Feminist" has some how sparked so much debate
lately.  Its really a simple word.  Women have suffered social and
political oppression for centuries and we simply are looking to be
seen as equals.  Not superior or dominate to men.  I'm sure you have
heard the slogan, "Women's Rights are Human Rights."  It's true, we
want equality for people of all genders and identity, not just for
ourselves.  We want ALL people to be treated to dignity and respect
and we want everyone to have equal footing. While we are a long way
off from achieving this we are taking steps every day.  Speaking up
when you see an injustice and voting for representatives who support
equal rights for all are two easy ways we can help the cause.
I teamed up with my friend Nina Wilson to find some volunteers and
asked them what feminism means to them and how they use it to feel
empowered. You'll find most of us just want to be seen as equals and
help other women out along the way.


Blair 25:
“I need feminism because...” female rights are equal rights. Point
blank. Period.

•What empowers you? Spreading the good in the world and empowering
others along the way.

•Who were your female role models growing up? I have so many females
in my life who have molded me into the strong woman I am throughout my
journey. It would be difficult to pin point just a few. In a vague
answer I would probably have to say all the women out there who are
constantly faced with obstacles, but overcome them despite the stigma
that women face.



I need feminism because us females empowering each other helps with
our confidence and to grow stronger everyday. To wake up everyday and
be thankful to be a female that can inspire and be a leader for other
young females that anything is possible.

What empowers me is my job, I challenge myself all the time. I never
would’ve thought I would do EMT or volunteer firefighter. Everyone
always teases me and says “isn’t that a mans job”. And no it isn’t a
mans job! I always get asked like with being 5’4 and small, how do I
lift people and how do I do with fire bunker gear/equipment and my
answer is always “the same way as a man does it”.

My female role models growing up and still are, is Lady Gaga and
Halsey. They are truly inspiring. They love people no matter what and
try to love people and their mistakes.  You don’t need anyone to be

In my own words I would define Feminism as female empowerment and
women and in support of women. It's essential to have that as a young
woman going out into the world on your own. It's reassuring to my
spirit  that I can be what I need for myself and when I'm not other
women are and that kind of unity and love is necessary for my mental
and emotional health.
The most empowering thing or place would be the women's bathroom
wherever I go, bars specifically but Walmart is the next best as well.
In that place in that moment women forget about how bad they have to
pee and cater to the needs of the girl sobbing in the corner.
Compliments go flying everywhere and friendships are made there. It's
a one of a kind experience men don't get to feel.
My role models growing up were the hardworking women in my community.
My mom especially not because she is my mom but because she put
responsibilities before what she wanted and many other women were just
as hard working as her. She sacrificed her comfort for my own and now
that I'm older I can't help but to move in those same ways of getting
the job done first and resting when it's finished.

“I need feminism because...”

-I need feminism because fuck the patriarchy

•What empowers you?

-All the strong older females who I looked up, and all the young girls
who are now looking up to me empower me.

•Who were your female role models growing up?

-Growing up my main female role model was my mom. She raised me as a
single mother, and worked anywhere between 2-3 jobs to provide for us.
She never made me feel as if there were certain things I couldn't do.
She pushed me to be the best I could be at whatever it was I was
interested in at the time, but she also let me know that failing was
okay and a part of life and to not get so down on myself if something
didn't work out or go as planned. She taught me it was okay to speak
ones mind, and if I didn't like or agree with something to let people
know. She helped mold me into this awesome person I am today, and for
that I'll always be grateful.
