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 movement to promote equality and fight oppression. That it does so at the expense of male power and privilege is a result of patriarchy, not feminism.
Feminism allows you to look at the world in a new light.

The belief that women and men are equal, and the movement that has arisen to support that idea. Feminism can generally be divided into three periods in the United States:
First Wave- 1800's-1920's. The passage of the 19th Ammendment is commonly seen as the culminating event of this phase.
Second Wave- 1950's-1980's.This is often seen as the high point of the Women's Movement in the US. The failure of the Equal Rights Ammendment's passage is seen as the endpoint of this period.
Third Wave- 1990's-present. Often seen as a more theoretically-driven phase, sometimes incorrectly referred to as post-feminism.
Thanks to feminism, women now have the right to vote, the right to control their own property and bodies, and the right to support themselves by working outside the home.

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.
