VOTING ON WOMEN’S ISSUES
More than anything, my passion lies in women’s rights. Since the time I’ve known about politics, I knew where I stood. In history class, I was thrilled to learn about women’s right’s advocates and all they have been able to accomplish in the past century and beyond. It’s still a fight though.
From reproductive rights to slut shaming and equal pay to glass ceilings, feminists aren’t done (as shown in the video above). Feminism has long been a dirty word. I’m even guilty of avoiding the label. But lately, as I’ve heard it used, being a feminist means fighting for the equal rights of women. I see nothing wrong with that. It’s something I should be proud of.
As we approach election day, I ask you, lovely lady readers, to do some research, if you haven’t already. While I hold my own opinions on birth control, Roe v. Wade, and equal pay, I think it’s always smart to approach these issues without bias. Believe in what works for you.
What’s important to you in this election?
