Rev. Karyn O’Beirne


Thoughts on Feminism:

 “For me feminism opened the door to leave behind all those conditioned beliefs about being a female that could box me into a role that did not fit me. It also introduced me to a community of people who understood that equality is necessary in human societies so that every person has the opportunity to use their unique creativity and passions to bring about the best our humanity has to offer the rest of the planet and universe. The simple definition of feminism is equality of the genders, but the results of Feminism is an evolution of respect and inclusion of every being on earth.”

Thoughts on Feminism: 

"Feminism, I believe is a state of mind in which one lives their life according to the conviction that all people should be free to pursue their dreams, and be compensated in their career path, equally regardless of their gender. This includes the willingness to call out and aim to correct any instances of gender inequality they encounter.”

Thoughts on Feminism 

“The dictionary definition of feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. NOW has been working to achieve this equality under the law since 1966. But for me, feminism means so much more. It is the belief in inclusion for all people. Every human being should be able to live and love freely and to achieve their full potential. It is a creed to live by. It is the path to a kinder, gentler, more just future.”

Thoughts on Feminism 

Feminism to me means women being equal with men. I want to ensure that my daughters and granddaughter and all women do not have to face some of the inequities and other roadblocks that I did. Although we have made great strides there is still a lot of work to do.”
