Especially if the word “feminist” came up. She and her friends decided that it was time to remove that negative stigma. “I wanted to redefine what feminism was,” Masroor says. “I wanted the school body to understand what the true policies and goals of feminism were.” The young women, including Chiara Caremoli, Stephanie Potter, and Rebecca Kaiser want to openly discuss issues pertaining to feminism, such as harassment in the workplace... Read More »
