Deciphering Feminism


Shuvi Jha

2017 was the year women’s voices were allowed to ring loud and free as the #MeToo movement pushed for equality. It was the year when White House adviser Kellyanne Conway refused to call herself a feminist “because it [seemed] to be very anti-male and very pro-abortion,” and the year when “Wonder Woman” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” touched the hearts of many, garnering critical acclaim.

For these reasons, says Merriam-Webster Dictionary, 2017 was also the year feminism became the most searched word.
