This is the new kind of feminism, a feminism that says I don't want to try and prove that I am as strong as a man or that I am better than a man. Why should I feel the pressure to do that? I don't see a man as a competitor; I see a man as another human being with his own strengths and his own merits. This is a kind of feminism that says that it's okay to see me as something softer, because I am softer. It's also okay to see me as something with great worth in the workplace and at home and at school. This is a feminism that gives room for men to aspire to become strong and gallant; a feminism that allows room for men to aspire to be brave and gentle and true! This is a kind of feminism that adores the woman in her exact form and function— mind, body and soul. I am a woman and I am free and I have wings and I can fly and I take joy in all of the provisions that are given to me just because I was born this way, I take joy in being seen as a soft and flying thing with wings, I take joy in being me! And this is my kind of feminism.
