5 things

5 things for which I thank Feminism:

1. EMPOWERMENT.

2. Ms.
The title.
I hate the "Miss" vs. "Mrs." deal.

3. Ms.
The magazine that introduced me to feminism way back in high school.
Made me think about myself in a different way.
A MUCH better, healthier way.

4. Not having to say, "I DO" to be something other than an "Old Maid"

5. Still working on the payscales...but it's a START.

going to movies or restaurants alone.

negotiating with car salesmen and getting respect.

seeing my daughter raised in a society that says she can do anything (tho there are negatives to that that she will discover)

having elder females to learn from

paying the check!

I was tagged for this by Nancy Toby at RUN BIG, but I didn't tag anyone, yet here are these great WOMEN posting their thoughts anyway! :-)
