Obama Writes Feminist Essay

"When everybody is equal, we are all more free."
August 05, 2016

On Thursday, President Obama wrote a 1,500-word essay for Glamour magazine in which he mentioned the gender equality that American women have been fighting for for so long.

Mr. President disputed that “when everybody is equal, we are all more free.” He also talked about how important it is to his daughters that he is a feminist, “because now that’s what they expect of all men.” He continues: “We need to keep changing the attitude that punishes women for their sexuality and rewards men for theirs. We need to keep changing the attitude that teaches men to feel threatened by the presence and success of women.” This essay was posted online on Thursday, and it will be published on the magazine in September.
