50 Memes for “Raging” Feminists

Because wanting equality is, apparently, so demanding

The word “feminism” can be divisive, which is funny, actually, because the definition of feminism—“the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes“—shouldn’t be controversial at all. The words “raging feminist” have long been thrown around as an insult, insinuating that women are “crazy” and “overly emotional” when in reality they're advocating the installment of long-denied human rights. The trope of the “angry feminist and the stereotype that feminists are whiny, bitter man-haters are products of patriarchy. 

Not that we care, really. In order for these “insults” to be actual insults, we have to subscribe to the idea that female anger is a shameful thing. And that’s ridiculous! Women have a right to express anger if we feel angry. We have a right to be “raging!” So, it's time to take back the word and wear it with pride. 

For all you fellow raging feminists out there, here are some memes to add a little fuel to your fire.
