My name is Shufaa, and I am a literature feminist. I started saying this when I was 19years old where I didn’t even know what exactly feminism is. I had no Idea of my own definition of it. I just used to call myself that because I used to write poems about women and what the society rates them compared to men. I didn’t know what it mean because again I hadn’t heard it anywhere else until I saw that my friend carolendanu.wordpress.com is branded the same. That is when I started finding out whether we have the same meaning, that is where I started finding reasons why I accepted to be a feminist.
I met Jamila, the lady behind www.lifeinmombasa.com who thought I write well. Thank you love ?. She introduced me to Nadia in instagram and I finally met her on her style branch launch and from her expression of life I got another meaning of feminism. It is wide. It is what you understand it and how you put it. The meaning of feminism is actually what you want it to be. Majority of peoples definition is negative. People say “feminists are angry ladies who have not found husbands to marry” but hey.,,, how would I be looking for a husband at 19?. [To me feminism is basically the state of female gender in equality to the male gender
