Who Needs Feminism?

Short answer: All of us.

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to attend a powerful lecture given by Dr. Eve Espey, and it was one of the best I’ve ever heard.

The talk wove together elements of reproductive rights, the history of contraception and the women’s movement. 

While this was only a small part of the presentation, I was deeply moved by images from Who Needs Feminism?, an online project started by Duke University students to challenge stereotypes about feminism and assert its importance today.

Some of the submissions are provocative, others disheartening. Some are funny. You can view the Tumblr site here.

Here are a few examples:
