What is feminism?

If you paste the word into Dictionary.com and press(no hitting…just pressing) enter you will come upon this definition.

1. the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.

2. ( sometimes initial capital letter ) an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women

Am I the only one who sees this as odd?

There are still more women on this planet than men…and it’s been like that for a very very long time (Somewhere in the range of multiple centuries). Therefore, there had to be a “movement”, a “word”, a phrase, and an activism population that had to fight for the rights of the majority of the population.


You mean we have to fight for the rights of the majority of the population of the world, and the ones that incubate the population of the world, to be treated correctly?

This has always seemed wrong to me!

Feminism is merely the idea that we should treat everyone with respect, kindness, and the belief that we are no better than anyone else.

There is a tumblr page called “who needs feminism”. This page asks people why we need feminism in the world, and you know, the reason make a lot of sense.

Here’s one:

What a true statement…in so many ways!

Feminism isn’t a “woman thing”.

Feminism isn’t a “anti-man thing” (unless being a man is hurting women, children, and stopping people from having the simple respect of living a life worthy of an equal)

Feminism is merely asking that we all get along and that we are seen as the people we truly are, not some prejudice created idea that is used to demean or hurt someone.

What do you think feminism is?

opt 4 feminism.

Opt 4 helping all people be treated as equal.

Opt 4 accepting everyone!
