Justin Trudeau is every young heart’s crush and probably Canada’s favorite PM ever. Without a doubt, he is the coolest Prime Minister ever. He speaks out his mind whenever needed, takes the decision that benefits his people, duly respects other nationalities and happily celebrates other festivals with the NRIs living in Canada, and wears cartoon animated socks to meetings of national importance (told ya, he is super cool).
Trudeau has always been a supporter of female rights and an arch-feminist. During his appointment, he made sure that the sex ratio in the cabinet remains equal. The Canadian PM also writes articles for Marie Claire and the topic for his recent article was sexism and he gave some very good advice on how we should also teach our son to respect and support women.He wrote:
“I want my sons to escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them. I want them to be comfortable being themselves, and being feminists who stand up for what’s right, and who can look themselves in the eye with pride”.
“It is maddening to me that my brilliant, compassionate daughter will grow up in a world where, despite everything she is as a person, there will still be people who won’t take her voice seriously, who will write her off simply because of her gender. The best thing we can do is to help Ella learn, unshakeably, that she is enough, exactly as she is. That she has immense power, and intrinsic worth, which no one can ever take away from her.”
We totally agree with Trudeau and we also believe that every girl is unique and powerful.
“Some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.”
“To raise our kids feminist is to recognize that they all have a part to play to build that world. To raise our kids feminist is to honor their future because they have the responsibility—and the power—to shape it for the better.”
He concluded it by his definition of Feminism:
“Feminism is not just the belief that men and women are equal. It’s the knowledge that when we are all equal, all of us are more free.”
And we could not agree anymore.
