Washington. D.C, Aug. 18 : In a recent revelation, Kim Kardashian strictly denies being a feminist and says that such labels pose as a great hurdle in the fight for equality.
The reality mega star penned an essay for her website explaining why she doesn't see herself as a feminist, reports the Entertainment Tonight.
The 35-year-old in her essay explained, "For me, feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles." Adding, "Of course I want these things! I'm all about empowering and uplifting women.
Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I'm comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies." The mom-of-two adds she believes labels like "feminist", "Democrat," "plus-size," and "bisexual" builds a separation, which gradually divides the society and hinders the progression of equality.
"I'll always fight for women's rights. Always. I support women to the fullest. But, at the end of the day, no one should feel pressured to be labeled as anything just because they believe in certain things and support certain values or ideals," she concludes.
