So, what is feminism?


The word feminism tends to get a bad rap, the word on the street is that feminists are man-hating females and that their goal is to etirely rid the world of men. This simply is not true. All genders are welcome into the feminist realm. As you can see in the definition above it is equality of all the sexes, not just women. Many do not realize that men face sexism as well, this is something that the feminist movement is trying to appease as well. An example of sexism for men is the idea that they are emotionless, men aren't supposed to cry. I have heard the phrase "real men don't cry" more times than I can count. Feminism is about ridding society from these expectations of the genders and instituting equality across the board.
