Feminism is far more inclusive than we are led to believe by the media and government. My workplace, Cardus commissioned a poll and asked: Can you be a feminist and pro-life? 57% of women said yes.
What is the nature of feminism today? Who is a feminist? Is there room for a diversity of views? The good news is yes, there is. We asked: Can you be a feminist and pro-life? Only 18% of Canadians, less than two in ten, said this is not possible. A slim majority of Canadians believe you can be a feminist and pro-life at 52%. Fully 30% of Canadians were not sure. Of note is that more women than men say that you can be a feminist and be pro-life. Fully 57% of women, that’s almost six in ten Canadian women, believe this is possible. Contrasting with men, only 47% of men believe you can be a feminist and pro-life.
