Liberty and Freedom

This video examines the relationship between feminism, freedom and the American lifestyle. More specifically it questions the motives behind feminism: is it seeking equal rights for women? or for authority over men? To me, it is the latter. After research and reflection, I think that women having more authority than men has the opposite effect than it aims for; rather than having more freedom, women are mentally, emotionally and spiritually more oppressed. Although the American society often objectifies women, this work suggests the disconnect between improving the situation and this type of feminist movement.
