Black-ish: Ain't Nobody Got Time for That
  • Politics → Ideology → Feminism
  • History → Twentieth Century → Women's Liberation Movement

Dre talks to Rainbow and insists that she should have taken his last name when they got married. Rainbow cites that doing so would go against her feminist ideals because it enforces that women and men are not equal, which she clarifies is the view held by feminists. By reverting to old tradition, Rainbow fears that she would do a disservice to herself and all the women who came before her that made strides to bolster future generations of women.
