What is a Feminist?

This quote today got me thinking… and honestly, I kinda agree with her.

“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is; I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.” ~ Dame Rebecca West

So what do you think? How would you describe a feminist?

    wow very well put…

    i don’t think there is feminist woman or a not feminist woman, it’s just another man invented label to try and make women shut up.
    that being said, by man standards i am a feminist 🙂

    feminist is a movement came to defend the rights of women, men didn’t came up with this word women did,
    and this word stands infront of the word patriarchy,

    It is not about definition, it’s about you as a woman respecting your gender and the opposite gender. It is about you recognizing your rights and acknowledging your duties. It is about you living your life to the fullest, achieving your dreams, and standing tall and proud against anyone who dares to tell you otherwise. Love your new look!
