Feminism, Feminist. We often hear this word, but what does it mean? 

Introducing our Expert Round Up monthly series featuring a variety of industry experts. This month, we asked a few women to share with us what the F word means to them. Including Maya Roy (YWCA Canada CEO), Brandy Pham (Planoly Founder and Creative Director), Emily Barth Isler (Allure Expert Beauty Writer Allure) and Sarah Spruch-Feiner (Yahoo!

Feminism is women standing in our own power. For me, it means stepping up and supporting other women, girls and trans women to feel comfortable in their own skin. It means pushing myself to challenge my preconceptions, explore and educate myself to understand the stories of diverse women.

A feminist is a human being who believes that women are human beings, and that all human beings are entitled to the same rights, privileges and equality, so in a perfect world, we should ALL be feminists. A feminist fights for fairness and justice. A feminist believes that our differences make us stronger. A feminist trusts science. A feminist is brave, but not fearless; wise, but not jaded. A feminist knows that love is love is love is love is love.

The word Feminist is beautiful to me and it's not a bad word. It's not about being anti-men. It simply means being supportive of one another no matter what gender you are. To be open-minded, to treat everyone with respect, and to have the same rights and choices whether you're a man or a woman. Everyone should be a Feminist.

Sarah Spruch Feiner

 

Feminism is the not-so-radical notion that women and men should be equal, in pay, in expectations, in how we are viewed by the world and how we live in society. It really shouldn't be complicated, of course, but it is. As we move past third-wave feminism and into whatever comes next, it's imperative that we consider the women who have historically been excluded from traditional feminism and work together to make the movement one of inclusivity and solidarity.
