Does the Future of Feminism Equal Inequality?

The future of feminism may be in jeopardy. Feminism used to be defined as a forward-thinking movement for equality of the sexes, but modern day feminism has earned a pretty abysmal reputation.

As feminists continue to divide upon and debate over the various issues that society faces today, their collective cooperation and collaboration continue to dwindle.

Feminism Feminists Feminist Gender Equality

Feminism: Dawn of the Great Feminist Divide

Feminism is not the unified, forward-thinking movement it once was. Simply defined, feminism is a doctrine that advocates gender equality, but the modern definition is somewhat different. It’s coming of age was the necessary aftermath of centuries of women fighting to escape from under the controlling thumbs of men.

Rheinmetall Secret Arms Exports: Cheating the Law for Profit

It has been one of the more uplifting news in the past weeks. Germany stopped its arms exports to parties involved in the Yemen conflict, which already caused many civilian losses, creating possibly the most worrying humanitarian crisis today. However, the bitter truth is that German arms dealers and arms exports are not affected by the decision, as they have already found ways to circumvent Germany’s ethical and moral guidelines in order to profit from war and death around the world.
