No, not THAT f-word. Feminism!
This is where you can find interviews, articles, and videos produced by Women Lead Arkansas or others that are related to our efforts.
Ask someone you know if they are a feminist. Chances are, you will hear, “Well, I’m not a feminist, but I do believe in…”
Women Lead Arkansas defines feminism as an effort to provide everyone the same opportunities regardless of gender. We recognize that there are inherent differences between men and women, but we believe that our talents and skills can be used to complement each other.
This is an effort to empower women to embrace their intelligence, leadership skills, emotions, talents, values, resourcefulness, and all other qualities we possess.
Whether you are a woman or girl whose dream is to be a political leader, a wife and mother, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, a world-renowned scientist, or to “have it all,” you are the reason we exist. Our goal is to make Arkansas a state where we have the resources and role models we need to help us believe in ourselves, support each other, and to achieve our goals—whatever they may be.
