Equality in all ways, not just the ones that are fun or convenient.
I recently read a couple of books about the current wave of feminism and I’ve been thinking a lot about feminist issues that I’d love to discuss. So, I found this Meetup group and it looks like a great opportunity to do so.
We've got to get rid of the negative connotation some people have of the word feminist. It is not a negative thing and I don't believe that women want to give back the right to vote, to not belong their husbands, to not be bought and sold, to not earn less than their male colleagues, etc. They just need to understand the positive reality.
My name is Cheryl, age 33. I grew up in NY, moved to Boston for college, and stayed. I recently quit my boring job as project manager at MGH, began a Master’s in Sustainability & Environmental Management, and now work for a renewable energy company.
We had a great group with lively discussion following the performance! I enjoyed meeting everyone.
