Feminism is the belief that equality for both genders may be achieved by focusing on the issues and wants of one of them.
Feminism is considered by some to have become toxic in recent years.

1. the advocation of social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.
2. an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women.

A response to sexism, which is also known as an institutional barrier within a society that systematically prohibits women from gaining equal status to men.

While humanism may be the equal rights for both men and women, feminism is also significant because women have been historically and cross-culturally subject to being of lesser status than men. Because patriarchy is such a prevalent form of social organization, and because by its very definition it relegates women as less than equal when compared to men, as long as patriarchy exists, feminism exists by necessity.

COMMON MYTHS:
1. Men can't be feminists.
FALSE. Both men and women can support equal rights for women.
2. All feminists are men-haters.
FALSE. Feminists do not necessarily hate men; in fact, most don't.
Feminism exists because women are systematically and institutionally prejudiced against; it is not the result of one person's or one generation's choices, but because society has set women up to equate to less from the start.

The feminist movement was something that occurred really throughout the 20th century. Starting in 1920 when wen gained the right to vote and again in the 1980's when women really started to break away from their traditional roles in western society.

These days feminism is being rejected by many young women. This is because these days young girls feel they have just as much opportunity to make a living as men.

Now days the connotation of feminism has changed from the original denotation of the word. Now feminism has a new common meaning "believing women deserve special treatment" while this is NOT the actual dictionary definition of the word, it is what most people mean when they talk about feminism these days.

Consequently, many young women feel the need for change has past and with it the need to identify as a feminist.

The young women who still identify with feminism are on the more "radical" side of the scale and feel women are still not equal and want even more benefits given on top if the affirmative action already provided for being a women in western society (more scholarship opportunities, more access to government assisted living, and government subsidies for owning their own business). These are the radical women who have given feminism a bad name.
Example of the new connotation of a feminism:

"Goddamn did you hear that bitch talking about how employers should have to pay for their female employees' birth control and pregnancy tests?!"

"Yea man! That chick's gotta be a feminist."

A word made to accelerate the rights of women over men, commonly used in the early 20th century to equalize gender opportunities, such as voting and work rights. Commonly used by females on social media to start arguments about why women are de-moralized by statements of one male individual, or as an excuse to call males "oppressed white guys." Commonly confused with Gender Equality.
Correct usage: "Man, women cant work at McDonalds anymore. We need some feminism here so that women can have the same rights as men!"
Incorrect usage: Peter; "Hey Miranda, Why do all the girls I like date the assholes?" Miranda; "OH MY GOD PETER THATS SEXIST FUCKING DOUCHEBAG YOURE FRIENDZONED OH MY GOD FEMINISTS ASSEMBLE AND KICK THIS OPPRESSED WHITE GUYS ASSHOLE"

Feminism is a movement started by old faggot hags on their period.
Feminists strive for dominance, not equality.
"DID YOU JUST LOOK AT ME?!"
"Uh..Yeah...So?"
"YOU'RE A RAPIST! I'M CALLING THE POLICE!"
Feminism in a nutshell.

Feminism was about equality.Now (Modern Feminism) is about retarded women with no brain and no logic, bitching about everything men do and acting always like they are a victim.If you see a modern feminist you should shoot her/him immediately and make the world a better place.
Feminism is no more about equality.It is about retarded uneducated whores

The fetishization of species-wide female incompetence through reinforcement of in-group preference among females, and out-group preference among males.
Feminism is the most obvious antonym of Egalitarianism, in terms of etymology.
