Cool Video: “I’m Feminist Enough”

Jessica Wakeman / January 3, 2012

I really, really love this “I’m Feminist Enough” video in which a bunch of women finish the statement “I’m feminist enough to ….” It really shows all the contradictions inherent in trying to live life with a set of values where it’s damn near impossible to be “perfect.” What this video really says is that not being the “perfect feminist” is OK.  All too often people who self-identify as feminists tear each other down for our differences, which isn’t productive to enacting the world change we all are so devoted to seeing. We really need more acceptance like this โ€” of ourselves and each other. It’s also awesome that all the ladies in this video of women of color, who are not the “media-sanctioned” faces we associate with feminism. They’ve got a second and third video here and here. I hope to see more down the line! [Vimeo]
