What Type of Feminist Are You?

“I strive to be attentive and open to the world and to create fashion that resembles the women of today. Fashion that corresponds to their changing needs, freed from the stereotypical categories of masculine/feminine, young/not so young, reason/emotion, which nonetheless also happen to be complementary aspects.” ― Maria Grazia Chiuri

If it seems like feminism suddenly became “cool” in 2014 thanks to the promotion of the concept by stars like Beyoncé, Lena Dunham, and Emma Watson, that’s because it did. While it has been around since the Enlightenment era, it re-entered the mainstream in 2014, heralding a fourth wave of feminism. Hundreds of years after the movement began, women are still fighting for equal pay in the workplace, adequately paid maternity leave, and much more.

One watershed moment for feminism occurred recently in the fashion industry when Maria Grazia Chiuri became the first female Creative Director at the legendary French maison of Dior. She joined a rising tide of female-led brands and provoked a strong reaction during her first presentation by inscribing T-shirts with the phrase “We should all be feminists”. It was derived from an essay by Chimamanda Adichie, a name that you might recognize from her spoken-word contributions to Beyoncé’s ‘Flawless’. Like Chiuri, Adichie aims to spread feminism throughout the world, and her simple phrasing is both a call to arms and a reminder. We should all be feminists; to be against feminism is to be against equality, and no one wants to be on that side of history.

Whether you’ve long flown the flag for the feminist cause or not, Savoir Flair’s quiz, created in collaboration with Dior, will help you figure out just where you fall along feminist lines.
