Trixie Films takes the question, “what is a feminist,” to the streets of New York.
There are quite a few stereotypes about what a feminist woman —that they are men hating lesbians, for instance. This and many other negative feminist stereotypes came front and center when Trixie Films asked New Yorkers what they think a feminist is, for their 2006 documentary “I Was a Teenage Feminist.” To be sure many of these stereotypes still exist today, especially the idea that men have suffered as a result of feminism. I think that if men took feminism and gender equality seriously it would actually benefit men.
How do you define feminism? Do you think it can benefit the lives of men?
