I want you to know that I am a feminist, and I want you to be a feminist, too (yes, I said it). This doesn’t mean I am anti-men, and it doesn’t mean I think myself superior to you. It merely means that as a woman, I believe that I should have the power and the choice to define what it means to be a female. Maybe I will continue to work a full-time job for the duration of our marriage. Maybe, one day, I’ll decide to take on the onerous yet rewarding task of being a stay-at-home mom. Either way, I’ll be “working.” I am hopeful that you and I will be able to come up with a solution that works best for our relationship, and for our future family, free from societal expectations.
