Child Free: Feminism

Elsewhere on LJ, I got crap from someone because I stated that I'm proud to be a loving, supportive wife, and that I'm happy with being the "great woman behind the great man." Apparently, to some, being a happy housewife means I can't have my own life and that I cater to my husband's every whim. *eyeroll*

So.... I'm asking y'all.... can a happy housewife still consider herself a feminist?

In all of those cases, you are are trying to force your choice on others. Feminism is wholly about one's right to choose for herself and herself alone.
