We teach girls to shrink themselves to make themselves smaller. We say to girls "You can have ambition, but not too much, you should aim to be successful, but not too successful, otherwise you will threaten the man".
Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage, I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don't teach boys the same? We raise girls to each other as competitors, not for jobs or for accomplishments which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.

Mitt namn är Emma Victoria Wiesel och jag kom till världen den 3 juli 1998.
Jag bor i en liten stad i Småland, men i framtiden hoppas jag på att komma härifrån. På fritiden, när jag inte är fast i skolan, hänger jag med mina vänner, sitter vid datorn eller dansar. Jag är alltid full av energi och näst intill onormal!
