In my grandmother’s day, you wouldn’t expect your husband to fulfill the same need in you as your sister, or girlfriends, or colleagues at work. You’d have different needs met by different people. Now we want all our needs met by one person, and I don’t believe that’s possible.
Happy International Day of the Girl, Smarties!
I need feminism because people should not be surprised when they ask to see a manager and they see me—a short, blonde woman.
“It’s not where I am, but where I’m going that matters.”
October 11, is International Day of the Girl, a day to advance the rights of women and girls everywhere.
Girls like Eunice deserve the same opportunities as boys: the same chance to go to school, the same chance to work, and the same chance to lead a full life. Eunice is a student at the Kibera School for Girls in Kibera, the largest slum in Kenya. Despite facing severe hardships – or perhaps because of them – Eunice is driven to become a doctor and give back to her community.
