Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Feminism to me, is a belief system where you are an advocate for gender equality. Feminism in my life has been played out through me wanting to be seen as "worthy" as men are because I feel our society really devalues women and their voice. Being a feminist is wanting a better future, where your daughters and sons do not feel that they have to be forced into a role they are unhappy with just to meet society's expectations. Feminism to me is wanting to live in a world where you are seen as who you are as a person rather than "just a woman" or a man that does not fit the stereotypical "strong man" role. I think that is important to remember that about half of the world's people are women, and many of them go through horrendous things, simply because they are a woman. The same thing happens to men who do not meet the profile of a "strong man." I think feminism is still important today because gender equality is important, people should be treated fairly and unfortunately that is not the case, girls need to recognize that there is still a lot we are fighting for.
