Who Wants to Marry a Feminist – Lisa Miya-Jervis

Leave a comment

It saddens me that the social world looks at feminists as man hating, lesbian, rights fighters. Feminists have been given a stigma; a bad one. Just because a woman wants rights and freedoms for herself does not mean that she can not find love with a man. Yes, I do feel as though it would take a special man to be with a feminist woman because most men still today believe in their superiority to women. However, I feel that if a man truly loves a woman that he will support her and not look down on her personal beliefs as a reason not to marry. Lisa describes it very well in this article when she states, “How had we come to the end of the 20th century with such ridiculous, outmoded notions even partially intact?” It truly is a travesty.
