    I want to explain why I came to this site because a lot of people my age look down on me for calling myself a feminist. It’s people like Phyllis Schlafly that made me change my mind. The words that come out of Phyllis Schlafly’s mouth have always been shocking to me. How could a women say these things about another women? She preaches that women shouldn’t leave their tradition roles. She is known for her victim blaming and believes that victims of rape got what they ”deserve”. It’s wrong and it makes me angry. However, what hurts the most is that none of my fellow students think about these social injustices. They are wrapped up in the latest trend and all I want is to be a force for change in the world. This is why I cam to this site. I want to be able to help and be active when women get the equality that they have work for.
