This book length essay is expanded from the author’s TEDx Talk of the same title. It draws heavily from her personal experiences in life. The word “feminist” is being used as an insult but should be a label like conservative or liberal. Women should be able to be themselves and not relate everything in their lives to men. A feminist helps support the ideal of individualism not characterize everyone as male or female. An interesting and thought provoking essay.
