Feminism is not only for women. It’s something everyone can participate in
You go, girl. Ani DiFranco is promoting her new album, ‘Which Side Are You On?’, which is coming out on January 16. With this occasion she had a few interviews. The one she gave for Independent UK is pretty interesting.
She talks about feminism. You can see that she says feminism is not a matriarchy in the sense of oppressing men and women being in control of society.
“Feminism is not only for women. It’s something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve … balance and peace. … Patriarchy is a fundamental imbalance underlying society. And it’s one we rarely address because it’s so universal. But as I get older, I see that peace is a product of balance. You can’t start with imbalance and end with peace, be that in your own body, in an ecosystem or between a government and its people. What we need to strive for is not perfection, but balance”, she said.
