WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? TIME has decided to include the word “feminist” in its annual “worst words” poll


Alongside words like “bae,” “basic,” “turnt,” and “yaaasssss, TIME INCLUDES FEMINIST.””Feminist” is an important word, not a meme. In fact, millions of women and men around the world like you who believe in the social, economic, and political equality of all women identify as “feminist” – including Taylor Swift, who is currently on TIME’s cover.

If TIME is annoyed with a word that represents saving women’s lives, fighting for equality, and ending violence against women, then there’s something wrong with TIME – and not with the word “feminist.”

Tell TIME: “Feminist” is not your word to ban, and we’re not giving it up!

If you’re not either, sign the petition.
