I believe that feminism is very important. Women should be treated as equals, socially, politically, economically.

Con

The war on women has already been won. There is no need for feminism except in places like the middle east in where there is anarchy.

There is no argument here. Those who are not feminists are misogynists. The argument for feminism is not that women are superior to men or that men are inferior to women. The argument for feminism is simply that the two sexes deserve to have equal rights in all ways.

The war has not been won on feminism. Although the problem may not be apparent, the reality of the situation is that the gender pay gap stands at 15% in the UK, with women earning an average "5,000 less a year than their male colleagues. The disparity is even greater in part time jobs, going up to 35 per cent.
Globally only a 24 per cent of senior management roles are now filled by women. The Equalities and Human Rights Commission estimates it will take 70 years at the current rate of progress to see an equal number of female and male directors of FTSE 100 companies.

In 10 countries around the world women are legally bound to obey their husbands. In fact, many women still believe that it is acceptable for their husbands to sexually and physically abuse them.

Inequality among the sexes is still a major problem that we must face today. Feminists are not just women who don't compete well with other women, feminists are people who believe that men and women are equal, and deserve to be treated as such. To say that feminism is no longer current is ignorant.

Important for what? Feminists are just women who don't compete well with other women. They fall short when it comes to getting a man, so they stick it to the women who are more successful at this.
