Comments From You

I really feel strongly about what I call the Feminism brand. It’s like it’s now the new trend to say you are feminist. Not because you feel that way, or care about the cause but just because you might sell more…
We tend to see a lot of that especially in pop music and cinema. I am no one to judge but sometimes it all seems too commercial for me..
I wrote about it in this article called The Feminism Brand : https://donotinterruptme.wordpress.com/2016/12/21/the-feminism-brand/

I’d like to have other opinions on that matter… :)
