“ Feminism begins with the premise that women’s and men’s positions in society are the result of social, not natural or biological factors…. Feminists generally see social institutions and social attitudes as the basis for women’s position in society. Because in sexist societies these institutions have created structured inequities between women and men, feminists believe in transforming institutions to generate liberating social changes on behalf of women; thus, feminism takes women’s interests and perspectives seriously, believing that women are not inferior to men. Feminism is a way of both thinking and acting; in fact, the union of action and thought is central to feminist programs for social change. Although feminists do not believe that women should be like men, they do believe that women’s experiences, concerns, and ideas are as valuable as those of men and should be treated with equal seriousness and respect. As a result, feminism makes women’s interests central in movement for social change.”-Margaret L. Anderson.
If only it was that simple.
