“Do you consider yourself a feminist? Why or why not? How do you define feminism?”

“I would consider myself a feminist because, to me, feminism really means equal treatment of both genders. Gender really has no impact on what you’re capable of, or what you do, and I feel like the people I work with and admire are a span of both genders, and it doesn’t determine what you can do.”

“Yes, I consider myself a feminist. Feminism to me means equality between both genders and fighting for both genders to live in harmony.”

“According to society’s view of feminism, no I don’t consider myself a feminist because that word comes with a bad connotation. But, I do consider myself a feminist in my own point of view, which is equality for everyone no matter their gender.”

“The way that I see feminism is empowering women to become on the same playing field as men are, because women have been underrepresented in the past. I am obviously an advocate for women to be treated equally, but at the same time I’m not sure if opening the door for a woman or giving up a bus seat for a woman disempowers them, so I’m not sure how to be an advocate for women.”

“I like to think of feminism as a positive thing. Believing that women do the same things as men, and they deserve the same amount of right. Yeah I consider myself a feminist because I believe in the positive traits of women, but I also feel that we shouldn’t bash on men. We have to coexist, cohabitate. ”

“One thing that I’m confused about is when I get onto a bus, I don’t know if I should give up my seat to girls or not, because if I give it up, am I showing that men are stronger than women, that they should have this? I think they should have equal rights, but sometimes I feel like judgment may occur among society.

“I would say I’m a feminist because, well, most women are. I want to have a career in the business world, and that, of course, brings feminism into play a lot because men are so dominant. I would define feminism as the equality between men and women—equal pay, equal distribution of work, equal everything.”
