Why Feminism? A Proud Kenyan Feminist Reborn

Reading Time: 11 minutes I was reborn a feminist. And I want a feminist society.
A society where we can recognize and appreciate diversity, then include everyone in our new eco-feminist manifesto cum eco-socialist where we care about our community. A society where everyone who exists in it can do so equally and we can have more acceptance.
