The “F” Word

13 Mar

Recently, I gave a talk at TEDxKinnaird about why everyone should be a feminist. I’m proud to be one. And it amazes me that women and men across the world are afraid to use the term feminism to define themselves. Feminists are people who recognize that we live in an inherently unequal world that does not favor women in the majority of cases and are are working to correct this imbalance.

Well …. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a feminist. And I think you shouldn’t be afraid to be one either. Words, after all, are powerful.

And so are pictures – so here is a pictoral tribute to all the brave feminists out there who have paved the way and made it easier for women like me and have served as trailblazers and inspirations to countless people across the globe.
