Cher Horowitz is the Feminist Icon We all Deserve

Cher Horowitz is the Feminist Icon We all Deserve

by Hilary Loverher

It’s pretty obvious, considering Clueless is based Emma by Jane Austen, that Cher is a feminist.  She voices her opinions freely, she is strong and independent, she looks out for her fellow women (most of the time)--sure, she may not be perfect, but Cher is the best feminist role model we could have asked to grow up with; considering this movie is old enough to rent a car, Cher has aged well in the 21st century and she should be celebrated for decades to come!

1. Her body, her choice

Cher says it best, and it’s true: you need to have standards for yourself.  Treat yourself like the royalty you are and don’t settle for less! She doesn’t let Elton pressure her into anything she doesn’t want to do; she only tries to move forward with Christian when she is sure about her feelings for him.  She doesn’t let her friends teasing pressure her into a decision she’d regret. Cher is the boss of her own body and she won’t do anything she doesn’t want to do #yesqueen

2. Her inner (and outer) makeovers

You should never change yourself for someone, it’s true.  Cher makes over Ms. Geist, Tai, even herself, in an effort to promote betterment, not change.  Ms. Geist should want to take pride in her appearance. Tai should want to work on her body and mind.  Cher should want to care about the world, local and global. These are things we should all want to do.  It isn’t about the clothes or the makeup, but about the growth made in the end.

3. She’s always Team Tai

Even if Tai can be way harsh, Cher shows an endless amount of support towards her friend.  Beyond her initial befriending/makeover, Cher takes care of her at social outings, offers her emotional support on multiple occasions, and this is a big one: lets Tai make her own mistakes.  Cher lets her flex, allows her to be extra, and never holds it against her. That is best friend goals right there.

4. She’s tenacious as hell


Cher speaks her mind, but she won’t insist upon something unless she knows she’s right. She doesn’t school Josh’s date on Hamlet to be a petty know-it-all, she does it to prove she isn’t the airhead people perceive her to be (and Josh rightly respects her for it!).

5. She is hella inclusive


Cher is incredibly progressive.  She’s the kind of feminist we should all be because of her inclusion--immigration rights?  She supports them. LGBTQ visibility? She’s here for it. Why wouldn’t you want to take a page out of her book?

With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up.

Hi everyone I’m Olivia Hannah and am here to share the wonderful work Dr Raypower did for me. After 5 years in marriage with my husband with 2 kids, my husband started acting weird and going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Dr. Raypower who help people with relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a love spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with other ladies and his with me for good and for real.

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
