Thats what Feminism is.

Feminism is the movement of women that attempts to break down the barriers of gender inequality. It is thought to have began in the late 19th century with the womens campaign for the vote. It began to pick up steam in the again in the sixties with the arival of the pill but began to fizzle out in the 90s.
It is now largely regarded (particularly by ignorant skinheaded men) as obselete. "Ya vote, ya work, Wha' ya monin' 'bout ya freaky lesbo" is the general thought among this crowd.
True women can vote but that is hardly the surface of gender inequality. Women CAN work but are also expected to look after the kids and do the housework. Equal? I don't think so. Women are also statistically paid less for doing the same jobs as men and hold relatively few high powered jobs compared to men.
Sure women have made progress but there are still major inequalties in society that need to be solved.
"Why do I care?" I hear those of you who are male say. Well, you have mothers, sisters, wives etc. Wouldnt you be furious if they were disadvantaged because they were black or gay or disabled? Of course you would! So why is it ok for this to happen to your family because they are women?
You do not have to hate men or burn bras or be a lesbian to be a feminist. You just have to believe in equality.
Feminists (including men) kick ass!
Supporter of feminism: I demand equal pay for my sister!

Skinhead boss: I dont like bra burning lesbians.

This word seems to set off a highly reactive defence mechanism in men whereby they express great hatred-fuelled statements against women. This reaction is rooted in man’s greatest fear and insecurity about the size of his dick. The hatred expressed is in inverse proportion to his dick size and tries to express his undeserved sense of superiority.

Most wars are started by men and much of the hatred and negativity in the world is due to this testosterone related need to dominate and control. Testoserone seems to neutralise any positive feelings towards his fellow woman (human being).

The examples of the voting for and against the definitions listed are proof that feminism needs to thrive even more in this world. It stands for justice, humanity, equality, love and peace.

If you aren’t for those things, you aren’t really human, and if you aren’t a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem. But thankfully, there are some normal men out there too. Oh well, I guess it’s true that men have a brain and it’s not in their heads. .
"oops you said 'get down on your knees and prove my adoration?' I thought you said to do you a castration. Damn... my hearing isn't what it used to be since you gave me that beating to the head for your dinner being 2 minutes late". "Oh well it was too weeny to matter anyway.. can't even see the diffence...get over it."

A belief that women deserve to be treated on an equal par with men. It also denounces sexism as derogatory and offensive.
Feminism is not dead

A political movement, the goal of which is EQUAL rights for men and women. Many people view feminism as a negative movement. There are many branches of feminism such as Eco-Feminism, Womanism, Liberal and Radical Feminism. Feminists are more than just bra burning man haters. They are anyone who believes in equal rights for women and men!
"I support feminism because I believe woman are just as capable as men."

1. The radical idea that women are people.

2. A social movement created by those who believe that women are people.

3. Something a women is accused of believing in if she does or says anything that implies she believes she is a person.

(Often incorrectly mistaken with misandry and lesbianism)
1) Someone who does not agree with feminism by default agrees with sexism. (Denying gender equality is the same as saying one or the other gender is superior.)

2) Historians have identified three distinct waves of Feminism.

3) See almost every other definition of feminism or feminist listed here.
The radical notion that women are people too.
Feminism: the right to vote, work, study, own property, have freedom of movement, be free of sexual harassment - for ALL adults.
