Free writing, for those that don’t know, is an exersice in letting your mind free to wander down paths you’d normally have deemed too steep for it. In my set amount of time (5 minutes) I audaciously plan on writing something feministy. So, I’m writing this from my phone and wondering if eating those chocolate covered cookies was a good idea, whether I locked the door downstairs and where my watch is.
Back to the feminist stuff: Like how a glass ceiling in basically all jobs is reached by female workers. That no matter what good men say, what good men do, we will always remain the oppressed lesser sex. This is because not all men are good.
But then again, should we rely on men to free us from our shackles? We are capable of doing things for ourselves – but in a society where gender is ingrained, fixed, inherent, what does that capability matter when those who wield the power see only gender, not capability.
