Justice is freedom to be me. Where my life’s choices are not dictated by patriarchal conventions, where my decision to pursue a doctorate instead of getting married is not abnormal, where my decision to not bear children does not make me any less of a woman, where the fact that I stand up for the rights of women does not imply that I’m a stuck up weirdo without a sense of humor, where the fact that I shave my legs has nothing do to with the fact that I am a feminist, where misogyny is not something people can easily get away with, where women get paid as much as their male counterparts for doing the same job, where a housewife is not looked down upon as good for nothing, where women are not automatically assumed to be pious sacrificial and tolerant creatures, where sharing my opinions does not make a bitch, where I don’t have to think twice before I step out for a stroll alone, where women do not remain silent about sexual harassment, where the victim of a rape is touted as the very cause of the assault, where people can breathe freely and love freely, where labeling and generalizing does not come to people naturally, where women don’t regret being born with a vagina, where a woman’s body is her business alone and her short shirt is not an invitation for a tour between her legs . This is the kind of world I believe in. This is the kind of world I want to help build. A world where my being human is more important than my being a woman. And no, we’re not the second sex.
