Question of the Day

Nicked from fbomb: What was the first consciously feminist thing you ever did?

My earliest feminist memories are about asking questions: Why aren't women allowed to be ministers? Why are all my teachers women? Why do men get to go shirtless in hot weather, but women can't? Why isn't there a girls' football team?

Questioning gender divisions was the first feminist thing I ever did, but I didn't realize it. The first consciously feminist thing I ever did was encouraging other people to ask the same questions.
