Friday Five Minute Exercise - Feminism

1. Set your clocks/timers for Five (5) Minutes.

2. Write about Feminism. Webster's dictionary defines "feminism" as the doctrine that declares that social, political and economical rights for women be the same as those for men. Does your definition of feminism match that of Webster's? Do you use your writing as a voice for you frustrations regarding the rights of women? Is feminist a subject you avoid at all costs  because of the negativity that can be associated with it? Historically, do you think women used writing to declare their rights to others?

Get into as much detail as you can for the next five minutes.

3. Ready?

4. Go.

5. Finished? Review and be amazed.

I hope you had fun. Come back next Friday for a new writing prompt.
