Happy "Women's day"!

Today on International Women's Day nothing more important to talk about than Emma Watson's tits and how women (like) be quiet and reserved if the want to be taken seriously.
Today is the commemoration of an endless fight, that slowly but tirelessly has being helping women to win little battles in order to claim their human rights. Women are not equal to men. Women are not even equal within the "women gender".
Women are different and that is the challenge of this fight. Some women have decided to become mothers, some others to be pet owners. Some like to wear make-up and sexy skirts while others jeans and converse. Some prefer scary movies and I may need to admit I am one of those who prefer the lovely animated Pixar ones. In the same way, there are some men that want to have children, like to wear pink or be "old style romantics".
Feminism is about the rights that women and men have as human beings. It is about the differences that not just physically, but emotionally differentiate us. We are not equal, "feminism" and "feminist(s)" are not boxes in which we all have to fit. Opinions do not make us nazis. Louder voices do not make us important.
Finally as a woman I would like to remind you that feminism is not just about women, nor just for women. It is for us, for women and men, for those whom are being boxed, catcalled and sexualized. Furthermore I would like to invite you, equal women and men, to open your eyes to the differences that the world presents to you, to embrace the world for all that it is, but never at the cost of oppression.
