Finally, choose a feminist.
You are a Cultural Feminist! You prefer to promote the awareness of undervalued female elements that makes us psychologically different from men. As women, we have our own unique qualities and essence that have been oppressed societal standards and unfairly designate us to a particular lifestyle. It’s important to remember that our instinctual way of thinking does not make our biological needs separate from a man’s, we only deserve to act on those needs in the way we see fit with respect and tolerance from our culture and male counterparts!
You are a Radical Feminist! In order to achieve true equality, you believe that society needs to abolish any and all oppressive industry, action, or circumstance in which a woman can feel undermined or unappreciated. Inside of altering the current male-authoritative system, we need to uproot it entirely, and construct a new government or hierarchy that’s inclusive of female positions of power. In order to achieve female quality we need to replace male values with female friendly ones that are more in tune with the dominant side of a woman as opposed to the expected submissive one!
You are a Liberal Feminist! You choose to assert your feministic support with an outspoken voice and through political action. Being a liberal feminist targets the societal changes that need to be recognized such as abortion rights, equal pay in the workplace, affordable health care, and issues regarding domestic violence and sexual harassment. You firmly believe that through the achievements and increased interaction between women and men there can be a shift in equality, demonstrating female strength and the freedom to choose as your fighting weapons of choice!
You are a Postmodern Feminist! You believe in bridging the gap that separates sex from gender when expressing your feminist perspective. Only through verbal and written expression can a woman truly make a change that is designated towards a particular need or desire when taking progressive steps towards equality. Each female is different and encompasses a wide variety of values, so we shouldn’t assume that there is one path of action that suits all feminists. As females we need to remember that just we’re “feminine”, that doesn’t dictate that all women aren’t constructed the same way!
You are a Socialist Feminist! You firmly stand against the institution of domestic labor and any act of female exploitation. In your wave of feminism, placing a woman in a household setting and expecting her to be responsible for childcare, home-making, and the full responsibility of marriage is completely unacceptable. Being a socialist means that you promote and fight for the equality of women in the workplace and the system of capitalism, attempting to disengage from any behavior that class oppression suggests a female should confirm to based on her primitive design. It’s the men who should be making us sandwiches!
You are a Postcolonial Feminist! In close relation to Third World Feminism, postcolonialism focuses on ethnic issues, racism, and the economical and patriarchal effects of historical injustice. Women in western society may be fighting for their own standards of equality, but women who suffer from racial and cultural oppression still have a long way to go, therefore, they need our help more than we previously considered. Slavery, migration, religious oppression and false representation are just a few of the issues plaguing ethnic women in more distressed regions of the world, and you prefer to tend to their needs before you continue with the progress of your own!
