Feminism is a fascinating concept. It means something different to each of us. My personal perception of feminism has evolved over the course of my life.
Feminism in the 70's
My first introduction to the idea was as an adolescent in the 1970’s. Germaine Greer’s The Female Eunuch shocked the world. At that time (my early teens) I wanted to challenge social norms, reject old traditions and wholeheartedly embrace new modes of thinking and being. Conformity was not an option for me. I didn’t want to end up like my parents, whose life seemed uninspiring and undesirable to an adventure-hungry teenager.
