Can you raise your hand if you consider yourself a feminist?

如果你觉得自己是女权主义者,能举手让我看看吗?

Thank you. I met this little girl who was in the 5th grade,and found out something very interesting about her that opened my mind. She likes playing soccer.

谢谢大家。我曾经遇到过一个五年级的小女孩,我发现了一件有趣的事情,这让我大开眼界——她喜欢踢足球。

And I don't know if she's good or not,but just the fact that she likes playing it makes me feel like she's accomplishing something great for herself. However,even though she loves soccer,she doesn't play it at school because she's scared of losing all of her friends. After all,she's a girl,soccer's for boys. Girls can't play soccer.

我不知道她足球踢的好不好,但仅仅是她喜欢踢球这件事就让我觉得她是在为自己做一些很棒的事情。然而,即使她喜欢足球,她也不会在学校踢足球,因为她害怕失去她所有的朋友。毕竟她是女孩,而足球是男孩子玩的。女孩子不能踢足球。

I also heard about this little boy who was in the library of his school,and chose a book with a pink cover about a princess. When he was observing which type of books his friends were getting,he rapidly put the book back on the shelf and got a book abouta superhero. He thought that if his friends saw him getting that"girly book"he would be bullied and teased in front of everybody. After all,he is a boy.Pink books are for girls.Boys can't read pink books. I am a feminist. This is a statement that may be shocking for many of you,but that is probably because you may not know what feminism really is.

我还听说了一个小男孩,他在学校的图书馆里选择了一本粉红色封面关于一位公主的书。当他观察他的朋友们拿哪一类的书时,他迅速地把书放回书架,拿了一本关于超级英雄的书。他认为如果他的朋友们看到他拿着那本”娘娘腔的书”,他就会在大家面前被欺负和嘲笑。毕竟,他是一个男孩。粉红色的书是给女孩子看的。男孩子不能读粉红色的书。我是个女权主义者。对于你们大多数人来说,这可能是一个令人震惊的声明,但那可能是因为你可能不知道什么是真正的女权主义。

Feminism is often seen as a rebellion against men. Feminists are men haters,aggressive,isolated,unattractive women with hairy armpits. My goal today is to change this mistaken idea of feminism that you may have,and that I once had. I remember being in a classroom with 30 students. We were in a circle able to see everybody's face,when the teacher asked,"Can you raise your hand if you consider yourself a feminist?" I didn't raise my hand. No one did. Yes,I was in favor of gender equality.

女权主义常被视为对男性的反抗。女权主义者是讨厌男人的,好斗的、孤立的、没有吸引力的、腋毛浓密的女人。我今天的目标是改变你可能有的错误的女权主义观念,而我曾经也有过。我记得在一个有30个学生的教室里。我们围成一圈,可以看到每个人的脸,这时老师问,“如果你认为自己是女权主义者,你能举手吗?”我没有举手。没有人举手。是的,我支持性别平等。

Yes,I got mad when men and women were made to do things just because of their gender,but at the time I was thinking,"I'm not a feminist,I shave my armpits." I was scared of the word feminism. I did not know its meaning,I just knew whatever it was,it wasn't me. But I was wrong. In many places,Feminism is defined as the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political,economic,and social equality between the sexes,This may mean something different for everyone,but for me,it just means this,that everybody should deserve respect.

是的,当男人和女人因为性别而被迫做事时,我很生气,但当时我在想,“我不是女权主义者,我刮了腋毛。”我害怕女权主义这个词。我不知道它的意思,我只知道无论它的意思是什么,那都不是我。但我错了。在很多地方,女权主义被定义为男性和女性应该拥有平等的权利和机会的这种观念。它是关于性别间政治、经济和社会平等的理论。这对每个人来说可能意味着不同的东西,但对我来说,这只是意味着每个人都应该得到尊重。

As Malala Yousafzai,a 19-year-old Pakistani activist for female education,once said,“Feminism is just another word for equality." So the truth is that everybody can be a feminist,women and men. Your physical appearance,interests,behaviors,armpits,none of these things can stop you from being in favor of equality. Many still ignorantly affirm that our society is not sexist anymore,but how can they say that when even common expressions carry sexist implications?I would like you think about two expressions that you have probably already heard before,"act like a girl,"and"act like a man."

正如一位19岁的巴基斯坦女性教育活动家马拉拉·优萨福扎伊曾说,“女权主义只是平等的另一个代名词。”所以事实是无论男女,每个人都可以成为女权主义者。你的外表、兴趣、行为、腋窝,这些都不能阻止你支持平等。许多人仍然无知地断言,我们的社会不会再性别歧视,但是在即使是常见的表达方式中也带有性别歧视含义的时候,他们怎么能那样说?我想让你们思考两个你们可能已经听过的表达方式, “表现得像个女孩,“和“表现得像个男人。”

When people say"act like a girl," "act like a lady,"to you,a woman,they often mean that you have to be sweet,delicate,beautiful,passive,weak,irrational,submissive. When they say to you,men,that you're"acting like a girl,"they often mean that you're overreacting to something,being too sensitive about a subject,being dumb,being stupid. When people say,"act like a man.""man up,"they often mean you have to be rational,strong,powerful,successful,and create order and rules.

当人们对你,一个女生说“要像个女孩”、“要像个淑女“时,它们通常意味着你必须是甜美的、精致的、美丽的、被动的、脆弱的、非理性的、顺从的。当他们对你说你,“表现得像个女孩”时,他们通常是指你对某事反应过度,对一个话题过于敏感、愚蠢、愚昧。当人们说“表现得像个男人”、“爷们些“时,他们的意思通常是你必须是理性的、强壮的、强大的、成功的,并创造秩序和规则。

Feminism is needed because women can't wear anything they wantwithout being scared of being raped,as if the clothes they wear were the cause of their physical and mental aggression,as if they were provoking their own assault by wearing the things they want to wear. Feminism is needed because boys who don't do"boy things,"who want to play with dolls instead of cars,who want to wear pink clothes instead of blue ones,are bullied.

女权主义是必要的,因为女性不能随心地穿衣服而不害怕被强 奸,就好像她们穿的衣服是她们身体和精神被攻击的原因,好像他们穿着自己想穿的衣服就是在挑衅。女权主义是必要的,因为那些不做“男孩的事”的男孩,那些想玩洋娃娃而不是汽车的男孩,想穿粉红色衣服而不是蓝色衣服的人会被欺负。

Feminism is needed because women who don't shave are considered less woman,as if hair wasn't something natural from our human body. Feminism is needed because women are paid less than man for the same job position in so many places. Feminism is needed because we stillhave meanings for"act like a girl" and"act like a man." Feminism is needed because girls can't play soccer. Boys can't read pink books. As we can see,our lovely sexist society still exists,and we should all deserve fair treatment.

女权主义是必要的,因为不刮腋毛的女人被认为是没什么女人味的,就好像毛发不是人类身体的自然产物一样。女权主义是必要的,因为在很多地方,相同的工作岗位,女性的工资比男性低。女权主义是必要的,因为我们仍然赋予”像女孩一样行动“和“像男人一样行动“存在的意义。女权主义是必要的,因为女孩子不能踢足球。男孩子不能读粉红色的书。正如我们所看到的,我们“可爱的“性别歧视社会仍然存在,我们都应该得到公平对待。

You may be asking,but what can we do to fight sexism?In my opinion,I believe that education and information are theremedy for any type of ignorance,so gender equality should be something that every school should talk about. Having simple discussions about the sexist society we live in,or even analyzing how men and women are portrayed in media can be very powerful to open the minds of those who don't realise how bad our current situation is and show them how much we can do to change it. In Australia,some high schools are officializing feminism theory as an elective course.

你可能会问:“但是我们又能做些什么来反对性别歧视呢?”就我个人而言,我认为教育和信息是医治任何一种无知的良药,所以性别平等应该是每个学校都应该讨论的话题。简单讨论一下我们所处的性别歧视社会,或者甚至分析媒体是如何描绘男人和女人的,这可以极大地开放思想,那些没有意识到我们的现状有多糟糕的人的思想,并向他们展示我们可以做多少来改变它。在澳大利亚,一些高中正式把女权主义理论作为一门选修课。

All around the world,students and teachers are starting Feminist Clubs in their schools. I dream about the day we will look back and think,"but why do we have to teach kids about gender equality in schools?" because everybody will be given the same right. But for now,this is a step in the right direction. But also,as we know,education doesn't come only from schools. Open-minded families that accept their children to choose what they want to play or read are needed. We need parents to educate their children to not assault,to not bully,and to be tolerant.

在世界各地,学生和教师开始在学校里创办女权主义俱乐部。我梦想有一天当我们回首往事时,我们会想,“但为什么我们必须要在学校里教孩子们性别平等呢?”因为每个人都将被赋予同样的权利。但就目前而言,这是朝着正确方向迈出的一步。但是,正如我们所知,教育不仅仅来自学。我们需要思想开明的家庭,让孩子自己选择想玩什么或想读什么。我们需要父母教育他们的孩子不去攻击、欺负别人,而是宽容别人。

Simple things like this,or even working to stop speaking with sex,sexist expressions,are a huge step toward a better society. So yes,I am a feminist. I am a feminist because this is a movement for so much more than just me. We need everybody involved in this,so feminism starts with you. And I truly believe that we can do this. Thank you very much.

像这样简单的事情,甚至努力去停止使用带有性别歧视的表达方式,是迈向更美好的社会的一大步。是的,我是一个女权主义者。我是一个女权主义者,因为这是一场不仅仅是为了我自己的运动。我们需要每个人都参与进来,所以女权主义从你开始。我坚信我们可以做到这一点。非常感谢。
