A guide to standing up for women’s issues

Women are still very much second guessed, belittled, and patronized just for being women. If you want to support women, then you should stand for women’s issues too. It doesn’t matter what your sex is, you can become an ally.

Some people say that we no longer need feminism because the world has changed and women are now respected and treated as equals. Women can work, hold similar jobs to men, vote, wear trousers, and even short skirts – what else could they want? Well, quite a bit, actually.

Women are even sexually harassed, sometimes in the workplace, and sometimes in the street. They are then interrogated to find out whether this ‘really’ happened or not, and more often than not, the guilty party gets away with it.
