#mythoughtson: "a series that will discuss life’s bigger topics, like feminism, sustainable fashion and body image. Each month, I’ll tackle a new topic, sharing my thoughts and inspirations around it...my hope is that as a community, we can share and debate opinion about issues that impact our society. I want the posts to be interesting but also uplifting, showing the power our community can have too." This post is a follow-on from Lydia Eve. You can read her post here. I tag Aoife from Aoife L.R. to follow on from me.
I thought about this post for a long time, leaving it to the last minute because I (foolishly) thought it would be easy to write. *Spoiler*: feminism is never easy to write about. It's so complex and encompasses so many issues that it becomes difficult to navigate. Having said that, it's so important not to shy away from such a serious and real social issue and so, with a little help from the group chat, I've compiled a list of 8 feminists who inspire me. Disclaimer: this is not an exhaustive list, I could have gone on for days.
Elisa Goodkind & Lily Mandelbaum (StyleLikeU)
Caitlin Stasey, Hannah Terry-Whyte and Keenan MacWilliam (Herself.)
Chimamanda Adichie ("We should all be Feminists")
Molly Inglis & Beyoncé Knowles-Carter (What is "Beyoncé Feminism"?)
