Feminism (noun): "the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes"; "the organised activity on behalf of women's rights and interests."
Beyond its dictionary definition, feminism is a word that carries a unique (and likely purposeful) meaning for each person sporting the title. To me, being a feminist means striving to empower every woman I encounter — not just the women who look like me — and battling patriarchal nonsense any chance I get.
No matter the meaning it carries for you, there's no denying that feminism has demanded a place in the political and social narrative of 2018. And with movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp gaining momentum across the world, now is the perfect time to explore the history of feminism (and let loose in a pink haven!). London just happens to be full of spots for doing both.
Here's a look at five stops for every feminist — regardless of colour, culture, creed, or sexual orientation — to make on their next trip to the Big Smoke.
