Somewhat of an online journo and media dabbler who has just graduated from University of Birmingham in English Literature and Classics.

I’m a second year English Literature and Classics Student at The University of Birmingham (UK), currently writing for the national online student newspaper The Tab and Fashion Editor for the Birmingham Tab.

What Does Feminism Do for Men?

Society, misogyny, the media; all of these things persuade us to live our lives according to the accepted route that the generations before us conformed to. Yet if feminism teaches us that everyone should have the right to become exactly who they want to be, why do so many men blindly dismiss it?
