One reason we still need feminism

This is what a childhood friend posted on Facebook, and I agree.

We need feminism for so many reasons, but paramount among them is child brides and other gender issues documented by brilliant photojournalist Stephanie Sinclair.

National Geographic featured some of Sinclair's series on child brides in June 2011, but her web site has far more gorgeous, and heart-breaking, photos.

She has also documented serious gender issues such as self-immolation, gang rape, the never-ending war in Iraq, and polygamy in America.

How can people say we are now post-feminism, and women have achieved it all? Clearly, we have not.

  1. We definitely have not. We have a long way to go.
