Je Suis Féministe. Tu Crois Que Ça Va Aller?

I am a feminist. Before Chimamanda and “the wave”, I’ll admit I was more confused than proud of that fact. Even now, I am not certain of what the concept encompasses. However, I will keep reading, thinking and talking about equality for all. I believe men, women, children, heterosexuals and homosexuals are humans first before any label. We deserve equal social, political, cultural lives. None should be suppressed or repressed by virtue of his or her gender. Many have fought for this. Many have died too. And if anyone can not see the strides made and the work left, at least he or she can see that there is a logic in this. That it is not fair. That is it not a “battle by angry women who wish to be as good as men or have the same rights as men”. A man= a woman. A man should be proud of his gender. And just like a woman should! We are all born humans and we shall all die( thankfully so). We could as well cut the bullshit and live with each other fairly. Aren’t you tired of fighting? I am. But , insofar as women are treated as ‘lesser humans’ then, I am sorry, but my fight continues too. This is a lovely piece by a talented thinker. For french readers…enjoy.

Je ne considère pas qu’en tant que femme, avoir été à l’école soit une chance. Je ne considère pas que gagner de l’argent soit un quelconque privilège, ni que m’épanouir professionnellement sous-entende que je sois sexuellement frustrée. Si ces choses vont d’elles mêmes aujourd’hui, c’est parce que des femmes se sont investies dans un combat il y a des décennies de cela. Elles ont arraché à un système qu’on pensait immuable le droit de vote, le droit de s’instruire, le…
