Examples of feminist in a Sentence

  1. Carole Lieberman:

    I think her presence in the classroom, given that her past life will undoubtedly be revealed, will be a definite distraction, for one thing, it presents a challenge to men in the class to have sex with her and I guess some women will feel she’s a feminist and they’ll respect her for that. But there will be other women who will look down on her for doing porn and people who think she doesn’t belong there — that it diminishes the seriousness or the status of being a lawyer.

  2. Meghan Markle:

    He's a feminist too.

  3. Claire Fallon:

    Anyone who tries to argue that 'The Bachelor' is a feminist franchise is kidding themselves, but I'd also argue that it's retro-ness is what makes it both captivating TV and a fascinating teaching tool.

  4. Hillary Clinton:

    I'm always a little puzzled when any women of any age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, 'Well, I believe in equal rights but I'm not a feminist.' Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights, it just means that we believe women have the same rights as men. Politically, culturally, socially, economically. That's what it means.

  5. Pedro Sanchez:

    This new government is unequivocally committed to equality. You have heard me say it many times : Spain changed on March 8. There was a before and an after in our country with the feminist mobilizations and the new government is a faithful reflection of that movement.
