Count your answers, but before we reveal your superpower, please spare a thought for women who face violence everyday. This November, hundreds of thousands of women protested in Italy, Spain, France, and Turkey to mark the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-based Violence campaign. You too can help. Read on and find out how!

A majority of A.

You are a social butterfly feminist -- you can rally and support women!

Don’t fall into the neo-liberal trap of thinking that you need to do it all on your own. If you’re helping and connecting women around you who are breaking barriers and fighting for change, you too are a superhero.

A majority of B.

You are a high-powered feminist -- you can change laws and implement new rules!

You made it to the top, and now you need to help those down below. Politicians, CEOs, managers can have tremendous impact by creating frameworks that will allow their organizations to become safer for women.

A majority of C.

You are a supermom feminist -- you can instill feminist values and create a better future!

Every mother is an educator, and by teaching your children to identify and combat violence against women, you make an invaluable contribution to the feminist cause.

A majority of D

You are an influencer feminist -- you can raise awareness and change opinions!

When you speak, people listen. So use your powers wisely and tell them that 35% of women worldwide have experienced violence. (P.S. Remember that if you can afford designer shoes, you can afford a small donation to UN Women.)
