Feminism should not be reserved for huge events and crisis. Everyday feminism is the idea that, by doing little things daily, you incorporate feminism into your life 24/7. But how exactly is this done?
Do More Things Alone
When you do things by yourself, whether it’s grocery shopping, exercising, or going to dinner. Being alone is a great way to figure life out and helps with figuring yourself out, and loving yourself is very feminist.
Be Good To Other Women
Women need to help other women, and so many forget this or think that other’s are their competition. Feminism is about equality, and we need to help each other be equal.
Be Good To Yourself
We really are the hardest critics on ourselves. It is important to love yourself, because if you can’t love yourself, it is difficult to love others. If we believe in our own abilities and skills, go towards our dreams, and love ourselves, others will do the same and see you the same way you see yourself.
Speak Your Mind
Do no let anyone silence you. Whether it is during a meeting, in your family, or having coffee with a friend, let your voice be heard. Your thoughts and ideas should never be devalued. Period.
Speaking up can lead to great discussion and conversation as well, even if it is with someone who does not agree with you. Ideas cannot spread without a voice.
Watch, Read, Listen
The more feminist media we consume, the more that gets made and the ideas spread. Also, the more you read, watch, or listen will help you clarify your beliefs and ideas of feminism, because no one has the exact same feminism. It can be as simple as reading a blog post (shameless plug I know), or more in depth as watching a full documentary on women in media (Miss Representation for example). The more you know, the more you grow.
How do you show your feminism daily?
