President Obama became the first American sitting president to write an academic paper not long ago.
A paper titled “United States Health Care Reform: Progress to Date and Next Steps,” which listed “Barack Obama, JD” as author, was on July 11 published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Now, Obama has written a 1500 word essay on feminism in Glamour magazine, in which he reflects on the struggles American women have gone through in their fight for equality. He also used the essay to call on men to fight sexism and help create an equal society.
The essay which was published online Thursday will appear in the September print of the magazine.
Obama in his essay argued that, “when everybody is equal, we are all more free.” And said it’s important that he’s a feminist, especially to his daughters, “because now that’s what they expect of all men.”
