Why I need feminism

March 8, 2013

Here’s wishing all men and women across borders and boundaries, in New Delhi and New Haven, Ranchi and Russia, Dublin and Damascus, Srinagar and Sri Lanka, Bhutan and the Bermudas, a very happy International Women’s Day. These images are from the ‘I Need Feminism’ Campaign at the Lahore University of Management Sciences

    A few months back in a discussion, he said “feminism, socialism in short all these ism’s are theoretical concepts and need to stick to academia. In the “real world” things work according to social norms..I need to learn to live with this”. In fact most often I realize that friends around believe in this reality very strongly.

    We need Feminism not just as a theory but as a practice.

    I need feminism as I love life and all things beautiful. What is a world without women and men. What is life without the hushed silence and fights. What is life without those beautiful colours. What is life without celebrations.

    I need feminism, even in my more selfish moments (which I hope are few). Safe, happy, supported women keep men happy too! It really is win:win.

    I need feminism because although in 1947 my country got ‘freedom’ from oppression, more than half of the citizens are still waiting for that freedom to reach them. Till I live in an un-free un-just society, I need feminism to support my struggle to be an equal citizen of a free country.
