Housewives and feminism [Jul. 10th, 2009|11:08 am]
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?

But it is feminist for women to have that choice. The same way it is part of freedom of speech for someone to get up on a soapbox and argue for a totalitarian state. It's not advocating freedom of speech, but they have the right to say it regardless.
