I’ve seen a great wave of posts about women who don’t understand feminism writing about how they don’t need feminism. It really hurts my heart.
Let me tell you a story about my travels in Peru, where women’s rights haven’t gained as much ground.
I was walking down this one street in the sweetest, sleepiest jungle town when I hear this sobbing, and then a scream, and then quiet whimpering, and thump, the angry whispers of a man, thump, thump. Neighbors were sitting on their porches looking solemn, but silent. We pass this house, and the scene inside broke my heart. A husband, a father beating his wife who was curled up in a corner on the ground. Door was wide open. Two beautiful kids stood and watched. A boy and a girl. Powerless. The girl has no example of what to expect in a partner. The boy has no example of how to treat others. The neighbors sat on their porches, accepting this fate. I felt no shame from this man. This woman was his property, like a dog who had stolen food from the table, he made her suffer. I turn to my brother of the road, fists clenched, wanting to help my suffering sister. He warns me that it would not be safe to act alone. It takes a movement. This is the world without the feminist movement.
Feminism is the freedom you enjoy when you express your views as a woman, ignorant or otherwise.
