Declaration of Sentiments

In today’s society, women are still not seen as complete equals to men, which is completely appalling. Although there are many, many aspects society needs to fix when it comes to gender equality, I believe one of the things that needs to be changed is the double standard when it comes to women being sexual. Women are constantly being scrutinized for either being a prude or a slut. A woman’s sexuality is always brought up into question no matter what aspect of the woman is being discussed. Even when a woman commits a crime her sexual appeal is talked about and judged to add to the story. A woman can’t feel liberated and post a sexy picture on the internet if she wants to without people attacking her and assuming she’s sexually promiscuous. A woman is always seen as a sexual object but once she is aware of it and is proud it, this is suddenly forbidden?
