This is what a feminist looks like….
Louise Livesey // 26 February 2008
Photographer Patricia Nuss has been compiling pictures of feminists and short written statements about their feminism. It’s an interesting snapshot. Well worth a look but this is my favourite:
I was the girl who said, “no. I am not a feminist.” I was the girl who said, “all of my friends are guys.” I was the girl who felt being in the presence of females resulted in weakness. I was the girl who embodied androgyny so as not to be perceived as feminine or delicate. I was the girl who made sarcastic remarks in order to be perceived as emotionless and invincible. I was the girl who found sadistic delight in the subjugation of a feminine concept. I said I was the girl who never cried.
I am no longer this girl.
