Former sex worker and celebrated socialite Bad Black, real name Shanitah Namuyimbwa, believes feminism is not about making women stronger but rather about changing the worlds perception on their strength.

Feminism is a social and political movement about changing the way people see male and female rights (mainly female), and campaigning for equal ones.

It’s about levelling the playing field between genders, and ensuring that diverse women and girls have the same opportunities in life available to boys and men.

To the extremes, feminism has been used to demean men as women take it into their hands to take over superiority.
