Let’s go through all the introductory remarks rather quickly. Yes it has been a while... My how you’ve grown since your high school English class.... Beatrice.... “Much Ado About Nothing” ... Of course I don’t speak in old English all the time... No, no one understands Shakespeare that well... the wedding is called off... I’m fine... No really... how are you doing... that’s just great... he/she/they are adorable...
Great. Now that that is all out of the way, we can get down to business. You may, depending on the quality of your required education, remember a couple things about me. I am the witty, truth telling girl who calls it like it is. I am, now that enough time has passed and I have a word to call it, one of the first feminists.
If it sounds like I am bragging, it is because I am. I am proud to belong to a group of people who, even if they were not exactly named when I was being depicted on stage, have fought hard to get women rights.
I do not know a lot of things. Weather or not it was Shakespeare who wrote his plays is as much a mystery to me as it is to you. I have no idea why some people pour milk before pouring their cereal. I don’t know what a tweet is, and I most certainly do not know what a hashtag is. Those were not the only reasons I was confused, however, after being confronted with #womenagainstfeminism.
How are acts of courage revealed in real life situations? Well, people show courage when they speak out against discrimination, the stand up to bullies, and, in some cases, do something new. Also, women show courage when they take on men’s work and do “manly” things. Furthermore, women scientists show courage when they become leaders in a field of men, work in an area that nobody knows anything about. Specifically, Madame Marie Curie, a women scientist, showed courage when she quietly rebelled against the Russian rule, and became a pioneer in radioactivity science.
