This week we've had a get together, and come up with a campaign idea to help promote ourselves and what we are fighting for, in the name of feminism. We've realised that not many people actually understand what feminism means, and that we aren't man hating, bra burning hardcore lesbians, that some stereotypes suggest.
We don't want people to feel alone, and by asking our friends and followers to create these photos with us, creates a sense of community and family.
What feminism means to us;
As of today our selfie campaign is launched. The campaign is an opportunity to give women their voice. In doing this we aim to diminish the stigma surrounding feminism and sexism. This is a reminder that we are not alone in a society that makes us feel any less than we are. We are strong, independent women and we are here to prove that. We are currently asking for as many people as possible to take a selfie with a caption giving a statement on what feminism means to you. For example "I'm a feminist because..." "feminism to me is..." or it could also be a word of phrase that states the way in which someone or society has made you feel. Using the hashtags #BansheePerformance #Feminisme #NotAlone we are wanting to create a collage of hundreds of men and women giving their opinion, regaining their voice.
Please feel free to send us a photo of what feminism means to you. It will be posted on our website and social media outlets, but it will hopefully make a difference in someones life, to know that we aren't alone when dealing with feminist issues.
