“To me, feminism is the basic idea that everyone should be treated equally: women, men, trans, non-binary, racialized people, sex workers, the elderly, people with disabilities, … I see it as a part of a wider struggle against cisheteropatriarchy.”
“Resisting consumerism, which is especially hard when we’re told that the way we can make anything better is by buying something.”
“Every item we buy has a past and a future, and therefore an impact on people and nature. We should inform ourselves about its origin and have an awareness of what happens to this product when we get rid of it.”
Let's have a discussion about vegan feminism!
“I feel drawn to support marginalized individuals, those who are systematically subjected to social injustices, just for being born who they are. I am also passionate about supporting the environment and try to live as green as possible in my everyday life.”
The Women’s March is a one-time action which stands for the righs of women regardless of their background. This is the first time the march is taking place in Estonia.
“I used to be very engaged in animal rights and veganism. At that time I never felt like I was doing enough and to be honest was an angry person. Some people can live that life and do amazing things for the cause. For others like myself I need to prioritise my own personal wellbeing before I can be proactive. I still do what I can, when I can, but spend time and money on myself too. I acknowledge I could do more, and will strive to while still enjoying existence.”
