Kim Kardashian has revealed why she doesn’t label herself as a feminist.
The reality star spoke at a press conference earlier this month, and said that she doesn’t call herself a feminist – but still wants women to be confident and supports them.
“I feel that being grouped or labeled can create separation between people who do (or don’t) fall into certain categories, when they may actually share many of the same beliefs and goals,” she said.

The Armenian beauty has since revealed what her idea of a feminist is.
“For me, a feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender,” the mother-of-two wrote on her blog.
“Anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles.
“I’m all about empowering and uplifting women.”

The 35-year-old later revealed that she see’s why people may call her a feminist – but she doesn’t agree with putting labels on people for whatever reason.
“Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I’m comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies.
“But why do we have to put labels on things? You’re Republican, you’re Democrat, you’re bisexual, you’re plus-size, you’re poor, you’re a criminal, you’re a mother, you’re a feminist,” she added.

Kim finished off her essay by saying that it’s a person’s choice about whether or not they want to be labelled.
“It’s simply a personal choice that I don’t like the idea of being labeled.
“I’ll always fight for women’s rights. Always. I support women to the fullest.
“But, at the end of the day, no one should feel pressured to be labeled as anything just because they believe in certain things and support certain values or ideals,” she added.
