Boy’s section, Yr 8, Library
Reading a book under the “Boy’s section” of the library. It’s a Chris Ryan book, has action, fighting, a bit of murder and crude humor. The boy comes up to me, tells me I can’t read it, I’m not allowed. It’s in the boy’s section, just for boys to read.
Stupid boy. I can do what I want and I can read a Chris Ryan book if I want to. I don’t have to read about fairies and pink stuff. It is the start of an era, where I realise by standing up for myself, I am a feminist. Every woman is naturally a feminist, just by standing up for herself and other women. It is having a voice and telling that boy that actually, I can read anything from the library that I choose to read. Back off. It’s a good book.
