Famous Feminists - List of Famous Feminists
The term Feminism receives a mixed platter of both cynicism and acceptance from both genders and all age. But even in the midst of misconceptions feminism at the core is all about celebrating women and empowering them to no end to take on the world with no fear. For some, this movement might look synonymous to hate but Feminism in all its glory is about equality for male, female, and the transgender, with no discrimination especially based on sex or race. The feminists aren’t a pack of male-hating folks demanding special treatment of any kind nor do they believe that one gender should be above the other. Feminists strive to make those virtues a norm that is usually looked down upon and help build a society where men aren’t afraid of vulnerability and women are allowed to be independent. Throughout history, many fearless women have put away the cloak of submissiveness and have gone above and beyond to throw some light on feminism. Women that held the reins of the fashion world during the 17th and 18th century like Coco Chanel did their own bit to break the gender gap; when women were expected to dress in skirts and dresses, Chanel designed pants and suits! Just like her, there are many such badass women of this generation like Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Page, Hillary Clinton, and Angelina Jolie who have changed the course of this world with their struggles. There is still more to learn from these women- keep reading and have your mind blown by their insane fearlessness!
