Today we are talking about a question we have heard a lot recently: "are you a feminist?" The short answer is: YES!
We are doing our 'Women in Science' thing, and people have been
asking: 'Are you a feminist?' And we say, YES!
Despite common belief, feminists actually want equality. They don't want women to be greater than men, they just want to bring women up to the same point as men.
Most people are actually feminists, and don't know it. At school I have some guy friends who are like, 'why are you supporting this conference? You want to give women more opportunity, but now you're just taking it away from the men!'
That's when this question comes up. They're like, 'Are you a feminist? Do you support this?' I don't support giving unequal opportunity, I support equal opportunity in the context of both sexes.
