Feminism doesn’t just mean girl power, it means equal power.

Feminism is seen as a lot of things and maybe not the right ones.

Feminism is for women to stand equally next to men and to reach equality in both sexes politically, economically, and socially.

Freshmen Veronica Brown says what she thinks feminism is. “I think feminism should be exactly what it stands for. Equality for women of all  sizes.” She doesn’t quite title herself as one.

Eighth grader Melissa Ortiz, student of Del Dios, says,” I think it’s both women and men coming together as one.” 

What isn’t feminism? Many people have turned feminism into the belief that women are greater than men which is a false meaning.

Veronica shares her view on what she thinks feminism is not. “Feminism is not and should not be an anti-man movement.”

Melissa shares a similar comment saying,” It’s not women overpowering men.” They both would be right. Being a feminist supports both sexes as one, not one over the other. Having them come together not war on the other gender. This is a common mistake people make

Feminism, having both males and females equal as one in social, economic, and political views is the goal that feminists are trying to achieve.
