FMF-Affiliate group, BNOW at UC Berkeley, uses this Feminist Survey to educate students about feminism and recruit new members. Take a look and think about tailoring one for your campus and club!
A quick survey…
I empower myself.
I care about the true meaning of diversity.
I believe in equal pay for men and women.
I’d like to be represented by a legal system that accurately represents the
people it governs.
It bothers me when I hear about another case of rape in my neighborhood.
I believe in a woman’s right to choose.
I appreciate it when people who live differently from me are able to see my
issues, and then work with me to improve them.
I see the value in nourishing my own personal identity, rather than in
nourishing what others would like to make of me.
I am proud of the fact that I am not easily labeled.
I see that the media doesn’t accurately represent all people, all lives, and all
I realize that all forms of oppression are related.
I realize that if I really expect something to change, I need to actively work
toward changing it.
I would like to be part of a community of people who care about issues of
equality and work toward empowerment.
If you checked yes to most of these boxes, CONGRATULATIONS. YOU’RE A FEMINIST!
