I Need Feminism Because…

This past week something wonderful happened at McGill University; suddenly, everyone was talking about feminism. And they were saying good things!

A group of students started a  “Who Needs Feminism” tumblr page. Members of the McGill community submit photographs of themselves holding up pieces of paper that say “I need feminism because… [finish sentence].”

The “Who Needs Feminism” campaign was started by a group of sixteen Duke University students in a Women’s Studies class. The campaign is designed to combat the negative connotations associated with the word “feminism” and to spark a discussion about why we all need it through asking people to define it for themselves.

So, why do I need feminism?

Why do you need feminism?
