"...It's just the misconceptions about feminism that hold them back. I think if teen girls were given a fair chance to understand feminism, they would definitely identify with it. That's what I'm trying to do." — Julie Zeilinger [Salon]

What if we didn't just give teen girls a chance to understand it, but a chance to define it on their own terms? I don't really identify with feminism as it is seen by my elders. But I see its meaning in the way that I, and my peers, lead our own lives.

So what if you stopped telling me what does/does not comprise feminism and instead help me understand concepts and let ME define it for MYSELF?
