Editor’s note: This post was inspired by a comment left on an earlier blog post, that questioned my definition of feminism as “simplistic.” It made me think very hard about why I believe so strongly in using a simple definition. “Of course it’s simple,” I wanted to argue. “No one understands it if it’s complicated. You have to crawl before you can walk.”
I know this is just the beginning. But I would argue that it’s an important step. A definition is an important step.
I hope this helps.
Now, off to shave my pits. And maybe listen to some Beyoncé.
