Problems with the #MeToo Campaign

For a bit of context, the #MeToo campaign is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. Going viral in October 2017, the development of the hashtag, and its wider implications, was driven primarily by high-profile, successful actresses, such as Jennifer Lawrence and Uma Thurman, who describe themselves as feminists.

Why Aren’t You A Feminist?

I can’t think of anyone I know who doesn’t believe in equality. Yet most of those people don’t identify as feminists. You could argue that it’s because of the bad press the movement receives on social media or in the news… but sometimes you just must look beyond that.

Why Equality is Controversial

Why I Reject the Label ‘Feminist’

I understand that the title of this article might be misleading, but I do not see feminism as 'man hating' and I do not see feminism as wishing for superiority of men, because it's not. I understand the definition of feminism as the manner of bringing up the rights of women to equal those of... Continue Reading →
