About Equality and Feminism

30 Jan

Feminism: The advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

What is feminism? According to a Google search on the definition described above and in short it is about equality of women TO  men.

Some people have very different views on what feminism really is, some people would consider me to be a feminist and others not. If the foundation of feminism is equality then women should not be equal to men but men and women should be equal to each other.The wording might not seem important to you but in reality and in practice it makes a difference. I do not believe that women are entitled to special privileges over men, nor do I believe the contrary. Therefore if being a feminist implies this and for those who do not have a decent insight who may think this, then I would like to state that I am not a feminist.  I prefer to state I am an Equalist.

In fact, I support equal rights for all, between black and white people, between cultures, between religions, between ages, between social classes and between sexes.

Due to my recent discovery of this wonderful woman Lorella Zanardo and my fondness for the Italian people and culture I am putting a little emphasis on equality between the sexes. Without this woman or without this type of strong female character today in Italy, the sexism demonstrated in Italian media might have a future.
