I’ve been meaning to make this post for a while, and now that I’ve finally got around to it – I really want to let the video speak for itself!
Emma’s speech was so so eloquently delivered that it managed to capture the heart of feminism – something that many other advocates have failed to do. By including men in her discussion she defied the commonly held belief of feminism being a ‘women’s issue’ and gave it the recognition it deserves.
I wholeheartedly agree with Emma on this one. Feminism started out as a women’s movement to minimise the very obvious gender inequalities present in eras long gone (i.e voting/land rights). Now the differences are less obvious between the genders, and issues affecting men are just as pervasive in society.
We need to address ALL these issues if we want to see any real change.
