Born. 

It was a bustling weekday in the town bus stand. Hoardes of people jostled under the dim streetlights during the late evening hour. 

’70A’ arrived. The huge wave of crowd rushed towards the bus. The girl was one among the crowd. Everybody rushed past her, shoving her behind. As she was frantically moving to catch the bus, there it was. A grope. It wasn’t accidental, it was as intentional as it could ever be. She could not see the face of the guy who did it. He disappeared into the mob of people around her. All she could do was shout silently. A tear rolled from her eyes. Somehow, she managed to catch the bus. In spite of being fully clothed, she felt stark naked. And there was nothing she could do about it. 

That’s when the little girl in her was gone. A feminist was born.

Misconception.

Feminism, what do you think it is?

It’s not inequality;

It’s not just seeking for attention;

It’s not for benefits;

It’s not chauvinism;

It’s not for the sake of altercation;

It’s not about being selfish;

All these are just misconceptions,

Remonstrances against FEMINISM.

To all the men out there, you don’t get to throw away accusations;

Have you ever been asked to not follow your dreams because of your gender?

Or have you ever been gawked at for dressing the way you like?

Have you ever been asked to cover up your face because it’s a sin?

Or been raped,killed and murdered for no reason?

You’d have to walk a thousand miles in our shoes just to see what it’s like to be women.

Stop being bigoted, be radical;

Feminism is fair-minded, and so are feminists.
