In this article, we will be discussing how feminism is still needed as there is a lack of gender equality. Till this day there are still women that are not given the opportunity to be educated like men, females’ salaries are less than males’ salaries and women are treated as if their job is to serve men.

If a lady decides to hold on to a stingy man, she is most likely just looking on the bright sides of the bad situation, which are mostly that he is not a reckless spender or also not a womanizer (coz no other woman wants him anyway, so it’s the only way he is all yours).
