Is feminism really unnecessary or just badly stereotyped?

Feminism is a belief that women should have the same rights as men do. Sure, the modern society has given women equal positions in the society, but women are still regarded as sexual icons and a sex that is highly underestimated by other people.

Hi :-)
I presume by modern society you mean "western" or even "eastern" society/culture.
I would take a stab in the dark to say that approximately 50% of the population are female, maybe even slightly more.
Therefore a large part of the battle feminists have to fight is with other females, you would have to agree. If this is the case, do you not think that feminists are only a small but LOUD minority, trying to persuade the rest of us that there is still a problem, where no problem still exists?

When you say "but women are still regarded as sexual icons and a sex that is highly underestimated by other people" you mean men? For what other people are there other than men or woman?

You will have trouble convincing society/men/culture that feminism still has a place in today's world, if you cant even convince woman of it anymore.

Hm, many people have a different idea of what feminism is, as where feminism is supposedly the belief that all genders should be equal, many radical feminists give feminists a bad name. Nowadays radical feminists are more recognized in society and those are the people who believe all men are bad and women should get the better treatment.
