There are both pros and cons to this issue. Men, social media, and people’s perspectives are all relating to this issue. Putting down confident girls is not feminism.

Women of society from the earliest of times to the present day have faced a multitude of struggles. The issue of sexuality is especially critical to the lives of women. If one’s personality is the set of characteristics about them, including attitude, interests, emotionality and behavioral patterns, than sexuality is a part of that identity. As people we take pride in who we are, and are taught that self-esteem is important to our mental health. In our society however, women are programmed to shame their sexualities, and in turn, themselves.

Commissions like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission helped women because it allowed women to sue against workplaces that they felt were being discriminatory in any way whether by race, age, sex or color.
Contrary to popular belief, true feminism fights for true equality for women, as well as other people groups.

The role of the state must not be undervalued, as the state has profound impact on the prevalence of female genital mutilation. One must first consider the state’s influence on gender equality. The structures that influence a nation’s government proceed to influence the surrounding infrastructure, societal systems, etc. If the state is built on a foundation that neglects the needs of women, these same misogynistic views will be expressed throughout society. Without proper representation above, the voices of women will not only be ignored, they will be silenced.

The women’s movement did not only cover issues that involved women. Luckily, women came together from different backgrounds with issues including race, education, and industry jobs. I learned that women who had a voice in the past was viewed as a negative sign. Women’s movements began when women felt as though they were inferior to men and unfair adjustments happened in their daily lives. Women wanted to work and have as much freedom as a man.
