- What does feminism mean to
To me, feminism means that I think women are equal to men. Simple as that! I think most people I know are feminists but are just scared of using that word because it so often is related to crazy radical man-haters. I'm a feminist because I don't think I'm less qualified because of my biology.
- Do you feel like you have a
female role model in college?
I don't really feel like I have the perfect female role model here because I don't think a lot of women struggle with the "right" way to be a feminist. Does being a feminist mean I embrace my sexuality or refuse to use my sexuality because that's what expected of me? There are so many questions surrounding the "right" kind of feminist and arguments on all sides that I've struggled to find someone that seems to fit my ideal all around.
- What do you do to make UNC a more feminist-friendly place?
To make UNC a more female-friendly place, I constantly urge my friends to not use "rape" as a joke word. You didn't rape your exam, your team didn't rape the other team. I try to convince my friends why language like that is not only inappropriate and insensitive but also moving us away from an environment where women can feel safe talking about their experiences.
