The story of a successful powerful women in today’s society

Bossy Or Feminist?

This is the true story of a young feminist woman who is the exemplifier of what it means to be a successful powerful women in today’s society.

At an early age this woman started to demonstrate strong qualities that could be characterized as aggressive, passionate, and bossy in today's society. In reality she was just a feminist. Our society has synonymously attributed certain characteristics with being a feminist in light of this certain mold that all women should fill. Women traditionally should be with children, or should be cleaning,or cooking. Women should be soft spoken, not question male figures and should not hold roles with power. It is because of this outdated unrealistic idea of gender roles that some women who dare to go against them could be viewed negatively.

This certain woman did not put up with this. She would question and interrogate any and every man who dared to support this idea of inferiority of women. Those close to her warned her that her outspoken nature and could be taken in negative ways. But this never stopped her. Nothing others said would ever limit her potential or discourage her from standing up for what she believed in. Eventually her parents thought she would grow out of this “phase” and lead a life void of her passions about equality for women. But at age 25 she is stronger in her beliefs than ever.

As a young girl, I too did not see eye to eye with her. I just thought she was being pushy and that her ideas were too much to be discussed. But in reality that was my idea of gender roles that was talking. In every aspect of our lives, gender roles are expressed and women are put below men.

So where is this woman now?

She is a leader in her company, managing over 60 other employees. She is extremely successful.She is a force to be reckoned with. Her confidence and resilience is unwavering. She is an inspiration. She is making a difference. and...She will not stop her fight until their is complete political, economical, and social equality of the sexes.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
