women's rights

charlise theron- women's rights activist.

i recently had a conversation with two rather humorous friends who recently i gt into a bit of a debate about feminists and how they thought of hairy lesbians (turns out they were 'joking') when feminists were brought up and it made me so mad because they have no idea what women put them selves for us women to even get a job better than a secretary or even back a hundred years when women's books would not be published. my mother, who used to work in financial services is a feminist, and she's not hairy or a lesbian. she's blonde and wears nice clothes and never has a chipped nail (something we disagree on) so of course she's not going to go around burning her bra and refusing to shave but she understands that there is still a glass ceiling for women in the work place just look at the number of women CEOs compared to men, and don't even get me started on women in less developed countries. Women are still not treated the same as men and probably never will be but my points is that just because a women wants to fight for her rights doesn't make her a hairy lesbian and doesn't mean she (or he!) should be treated with any less respect for something they care about, even if they are a hairy lesbian!
