My research paper focused on feminism and the application it holds in daily life. It also discusses the inherent biases that exist in our society, regardless of whether we realize it or not. For example, I highlight a lot of personal examples from my family life. My family is much more masculine than feminine, and because of this I have more confidence than I might have had if I’d grown up surrounded by only women. Having a strong male presence has led me to believe that I stand on equal ground as men, since I’ve always considered myself their equal. However, many young women do not share this viewpoint, since they have had very different experiences with men and their attitudes towards women. Ultimately, the solution will come when gender becomes an irrelevant factor, and we start seeing each other as other human beings before we see each other as men or women.
