Summary

At first, the misconceptions and controversy surrounding feminism made activist Malala Yousafzai hesitate to identify as feminist. However, today she understands that feminism is an unobjectionable belief in equality. Anyone who advocates equal rights for men and women is a feminist. What’s more, women no longer require men’s influence to create social change. Women formed the Me Too and Time’s Up movements against sexual harassment because they realized their voices could transform the culture. Similarly, all women and girls should denounce any violence and prejudice in their communities. Their message may reach the ears and minds of people still holding biased or narrow beliefs.
