Inspirational teens who understand gender inequality

Young women are scared of feminism, we’re told, and the figwow-collageht for equality is stuttering.

The project was intended to encourage young women to examine the change in the role of women in society across cultures and generations, and for Mariah Ifill and her friends, it’s a chance to see how far women have come.

The teen told me simply: “I understand feminism completely. In today’s society, woman are simply not viewed as equal to men in some cases.”
