Feminism, to me, isn’t a way of life; it isn’t a set of rules to abide. It is the choice to live life on one’s own terms.
It is Malala Yousafzi fighting for women’s education in Pakistan.
It is Oprah Winfrey setting out to bridge the pay divide between males and females.
It is Kalki Subramaniam, a transgender activist, being invited by Harvard University to speak at the India conference 2017.
It is female directors – Patty Jenkins and Alankrita Shrivastava – making films that are female-centric.
It was Rani Lakshmibai wielding a sword and refusing to give Jhansi up, proving that she was more than a king’s widow. She was a queen.
It is Indira Gandhi becoming the only female prime minister – a force to be reckoned with.
It is Michelle Obama inspiring girls everywhere.
It is every person who refuses to be boxed in by gender stereotypes.
It is every parent who provides their children equal opportunity irrespective of their gender.
It is gender equality not female superiority.
I conclude with a quote from Divergent- “We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, the courage that pushes one person to stand up for another.”
