Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of sexes. Not that women are superior than men, but that we want to be treated equally in every sense. Some people still find it difficult to grasp the idea of an equal world. I personally am an avid supporter of this and choose to educate myself on how to be the best, and most insightful into this subject as possible. The article centers around how young people, especially young women, are using feminism. The #MeToo campaign is an example of how women are standing up and speaking out against abuse and harassment. The author is very descriptive and fact-oriented in a way that is both clarifying and educational.
