The name “Utah’s F Word” came from an article about how the word “feminism” is used in Utah. The word is often tossed out in a derogatory way, despite the many positive effects the movement has had (voting! education! birth control! getting closer to equal pay!). Utah is often ranked as one of the worst states for women’s equality.
We are not crazy. We are not trying to tear apart families or destroy religions. We don’t “hate men”. We simply want to live in a world where our gender doesn’t limit our opportunities. It will take work and time, but hopefully providing positive examples of feminism in action can help influence at least a few people to reconsider some of their negative associations.
