”I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want!”
Feminism might be misunderstood and bashed, men might feel cheated and cringe about not having a “menism” word for themselves in the vocabulary — but we gotta do what we have to.
And so, Project Everyone has produced this video starring Jacqueline Fernandez, British music trio M.O, South African hip hop artist Gigi Lamayne, and the 16-year-old model and dancer Larsen Thompson, among other entertainers.
The initiative aims to build awareness about the UN’s three prime global goals for Sustainable Development: ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice and fixing climate change. In this video, it addresses the problem of inequality for women.
Men,on the other hand, will have sexists problems with the video undoubtedly, yet the fact has to be understood that while in visible media women are shining (at least somewhere they are) but that doesn’t mean they have been shining everywhere all this time.
The repercussions of past decades will need some time and lots of initiatives to bring women at par with men — which is why it’s called “feminism” and not “menism”.
