I would like to, once again, quote, at length from How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran.

It really is important you say these words out loud. “I AM A FEMINIST.” If you feel you cannot say it – not even standing on the ground [as opposed to shouting it while standing on top of a chair which she previously suggests]- I would be alarmed. It’s probably one of the most important things a woman will ever say: the equal of “I love you,””Is it a boy or a girl?” or “No! I’ve changed my mind, I don’t want bangs!”


Say it. SAY IT! SAY IT NOW! Because if you can’t, you’re basically bending over, saying “Kick my arse and take my vote, please, patriarchy.”


There. I think that’s proper use of my estrogen today. And you should read this book.
