Check out these 10 signs that show you're a total feminist.

1. You believe you deserve to be paid the same amount as any man for the same job.

2. You believe that women's careers are just as important as their male counterpart's.

3. You think it's bullsh*t when someone reduces your impassioned reactions to PMS.

4. You believe in equal partnerships.

9. You know how to take care of yourself and take pride in doing so.

5. You believe in women having access to affordable birth control.
