I found this post about #lifeofamuslimfeminist trending on Twitter a while back. Here are some of the tweets:

I’ve read my fair share of how feminists are divided among lines including color, socioeconomic status, cats and dogs. It’s important to remember people struggle with the same things globally, albeit in various forms. The point is we’re all trying for the same thing, equality for all. Let’s not confuse rights and religion which can work in harmony, as displayed by these tweets. When you start judging an entire gender by their culture or religion, it puts you firmly in the camp of ignorance and makes you into the very oppressors we’re trying to be rid of. Don’t confuse personal opinion with liberation; that’s why we’re in this mess in the first place.
