1. What does feminism mean to you? Does it have to do with the work sphere? The social sphere? How you dress? How you act?

I’m honestly unsure on how to answer this. I don’t know that I think about feminism often. I believe women are equal to men. I have a partnership with my husband. I do not ask for his permission to wear what I want or do what I want with my body (tattoos, hair ect)… HOWEVER, I do ask his opinion because I care what he thinks.

2. Do you consider yourself a feminist? Why or why not?

I guess that depends on how you define “feminist”. Do I believe in the power of women? YES Do I believe women and men are equals? YES Do I think we deserve to be treated with respect? YES

3. What do you consider the biggest obstacle women face in the world today? Has that obstacle changed over time, or does it basically remain the same?

Ourselves!! I feel that women are very judgmental of themselves and other women. We are usually our own worst enemy. I honestly, don’t know if this has change over time. It may be worse than it once was.
