These little girls have had enough of unequal pay between men and women, rape and more.
FCKH8 — a group raising awareness about issues regarding gender, feminism, race and sexuality — gathered a group of girls ages 6 to 13 talk about the biggest challenges women and young girls face. With a few f-bombs here and there, the feisty princesses point out their curse words are minuscule compared to the hardships women face in 2014.
“What the fuck? I’m not some pretty fucking helpless princess in distress,” they shout. “What is more offensive? A little girl saying ‘fuck’ or the fucking unequal and sexist way society treats girls and women? Women are paid 25% less than men, for the exact same fucking work.”
Another girl adds, “I shouldn’t need a penis to get paid! Here’s a hot tip! Stop telling girls how to dress, and start teaching boys not to fucking rape.”
The girls add startling facts about rape including that one out of every five women will be a victim of rape. “Which one of us will it be?” one girl asks.
Producer Mike Kon defends the video, claiming the facts behind inequality are worse than the girls cursing.
Some adults may be uncomfortable with how these little girls are using a bad word for a good cause. It is shocking what they are saying, but the real shock is that women are still paid less than men for the same work in 2014, not the use of the F-word.
