“This word ‘feminist’ has been a very tricky word,”When I heard it for the first time,“I hesitated in saying ‘I’m a feminist.’“Then after hearing your speech, when you said, ‘if not now, when? if not me, who?’,” “I decided there’s nothing wrong with calling yourself a feminist. I am a feminist, and we all should be feminists because feminism is another word for equality.” – Malala said.
