Read: Zooey Deschanel Is a Feminist article
Reading this post, I was surprised by the fact that they were surprised to find out she is a feminist. Liking her or not, it still shows how some people expect feminism to be a women-in-pants kind of thing. Generalization never does any good.
I love dresses, I love hair and make-up, I love pretty things. It doesn’t mean that I can’t be a feminist or that I am obsessed with pleasing men. It just means that I am materialistic. Some people still need to stop associating being girly with being weak. I was a leader of several student groups, and I did it in skirts, heels, and mascara.
Embrace all the things: wearing pants, wearing dress, wearing whatever, or not wearing at all. Have no fear!
