There seems to be a bit of an epidemic of young women and men rejecting the necessity of exploring or embracing feminism.
Maybe it’s like similarly misguided ideas like how we don’t need unions anymore.
But when you encounter young people who get it, really really get it, it gives you hope for the future.
Meet Jules Spector:
At the risk of pinning all the hopes of the world on one person’s shoulder, that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about one voice, and a platform to speak to the world. Or her community.
The future of feminism is in the collective undertaking of feminists to continue to pursue equality and freedom and empowerment. ALL voices are in the mix.
But for now, meet Jules Spector:
“Girls are going to change the world,” Spector says. “I promise.”
The ideas on Spector’s blog might seem half-baked or overly optimistic to the most ardent of feminist theorists, but a modern teenager’s passionate interest in gender equality can only be construed as a good thing.
