Feminism, dead?

The first line of this article made me sigh. Feminism is supposedly dead, and there’s a big thank goodness for that, coming from this particular writer.

One. Feminism is not dead. I think that’s rather clear. If feminism were dead, men and women all around the world would be frolicking (ok, not literally) around in a field of equality, tolerance, and freedom. And unfortunately, feminists are still being stereotyped as the “frizzy-haired women who refuse to shave their legs” and the bra-free women that they are. I, personally, cannot go without a bra, although I am jealous at women who can afford to occassionally go without one.

This writer has clearly been midinformed her whole life about feminists and feminism in general. This is no huge attack on her, but the society that we are all raised in.

It’s the 21st century, feminists are not that hairy-legged stereotype, nor it is feminism dead. Get over it.
