Feminism is not a trend that comes and goes out of fashion. It’s an ideology, you are either in with us or you are not. I yet have to understand how the brain of men/women works who do not understand how consent work or what it means by equal writes. I am also aware there are people who walk on this planet and believe that people who work from home or stay at home mom/dad is any less of a person or contributor towards society. All this toxicity wants me to run to read some feminist blogs!
And Hey I just made a baby I do need some time off to bond with my baby and for the same reason, we are also advocating for paternity leaves to be extended. I am also fumbled by people who say you can’t be a feminist and equal rights advocate and ask for maternity leaves at the time!
