Laci Green on Feminism

50 plus reasons to be a feminist.  Myths debunked.  And she is funny; not Sarah Silverman funny, but funny.

I am a feminist.

Because my mother had to work two jobs because she was not allowed to take the hours to support the kids my deadbeat dad abandoned.
Because I also was paid less for the same job title and had more experience.
Because I want women to have control over their bodies.
Because I want full equality and there isn’t.  Not. Yet.
Because there is a backlash happening from the fundamentalist right-wing nutjobs that says they should control my access to birth control and not pay for BC pills, but they still ant their viagra.
Because of rapes going largely unpunished even when caught.

And because of what she said.
