Do first world countries need 'feminism' still?

  • There can never be too much equality.

    It makes no sense to ever state that we've reached a point where it's bad to make things more "fair". It's one of those things where we'll never reach a perfect state, but it will always be a good thing to come closer to it.

    Real feminism is about equality. People who fight to have "more of this, so the other has less" don't have a feminist attitude, although it is what they like to call themselves.

    If there are situations where women have an unfair advantage over men, it's also a good thing to evaluatie how to make things more equal. Even if feminism only specializes on one particular form of unfairness, it's always better than nothing at all.

  • Although other countries definitely need it more, feminism can still help out in first world countries.

    There are still unequal privileges in first world countries that could use help (although they are small) but the most obvious example that comes to mind is that mindsets are still widely set that femininity is a bad thing and doing things "like a girl" count as an insult. More examples can include cat calling and rape incidents. Feminism is about empowering women and making everything equal for both genders. There are still many problems within the male gender such as hyper masculinity that real feminists would advocate for a change in. Overall, every country always has room for improvement, and I guarantee that creating equality is an aspect of that.

  • Feminism is needed in first world countries

    Women are shamed for breastfeeding in public, even though their breasts aren't even sexual organs. They use it only to feed their child. Most feminists support everyone, gays, lesbians, and men. Proper feminists support both male and female rape victims. They defend men from hyper masculinity and they try to break gender roles. Real feminists want everyone to be equal.

  • The differences in first and third world countries that demand feminism in latter.

    Women in third world countries are forced to act according to certain rules and regulations under the name or excuse of 'culture and tradition' and are shamed by the society otherwise. However, first world country citizens receive better education and have more knowledge on what is right and wrong. They tend to be more accepting towards women and have a positive social attitude. Many women in third world country are still a victim of child marriage resulting them to be puppets of their husbands and possible domestic abuse with limited means of escape while such issues have major consequences in third world countries due to stricter laws and punishments. At this point, equality has already been mostly established among first world countries taking the example of the US where both the genders stand for election whereas, in some third world countries women are meant to stay at home and nurture their children.

  • Equality is alive and well. Opinions are apart of it.

    I am a woman. I do not think feminism is needed in first world countries. There is always gonna be discrimination. You can change peoples opinions. Equality is based on everyone being equal and having equal rights and opportunities. We all have that. Feminist make up problems. Such like "man spreading" completely stupid. You cant take away people opinions that is taking away equality. We are always gonna have problems. There is sexism for both male and females but you rarely get the problems men face. White straight males are not a problem. Go focus on woman who get blamed if they get raped and the real oppression of the hijab. In every religion their is oppression. Start focusing on real problems!

  • Stop complaining ok

    Women and men are equal. Wage gap doesnt exist, the data these people take dont consider that women take lower paying jobs.
    If women were getting paid less, then why don't more businesses have them? It would cost less wouldn't it? Instead of naming kids stupid crap like "girl" or "boy" instead of "Andy" or "Jill" you need to get your stuff together and think real hard about your life.

  • You are achieving nothing

    Feminism was established to lift the standards of women up to men. We are now equal, you don't need an international, female-led rights movement it's unnecessary. I don't see any feminists complaining that women are likely to win a job against men simply based on gender. Look up statistics, men are disadvantaged in many aspects of lfie within first world countries.

  • First world, no we need equality and men are just as poorly and unfairly treated as women in first world countries

    Feminism in the first world is like animal farm "all gender issues are equal but female issues are more equal than others" if you want to be a real feminist go to the third world you are REALLY needed there!!! We have equality in first world yes there are issues to be sorted on both sides now woman have a voice thanks to Pankhurst etc we can work together as egalitarians :)

  • We are civilized and are equal in this time of day no matter what by law

    Feminism would've been an awesome thing before but now people by law are required to pay women equal or get jail time, feminism should go to developing countries where there's more trafficking, and problems with everyone. Third world countries need the support more than us. Usa will be more boring ( No offense ) if feminism over powers all protests.

  • Its outdated and useless.

    If it is illegal for someone to rape,kill, or pay you less. Then feminism shouldn't be an issue. Many feminists think that everyone is trying to oppress them in every aspect of life. Almost as if male gender has a hidden device inside of their heads that keeps them from doing what they want.

  • Third world countries.

    I see all these feminists on the internet and everywhere claiming that first world countries still need feminism, and if you ask me, they absolutely do not. I'm no MRA supporter but there are plenty of injustices rather towards men than women, even in the legal system and in jail sentences. The first comment I saw claims women are shamed for breastfeeding. Not once in my life have I ever encountered someone shaming women, whether directly or indirectly, for breastfeeding. People understand that it's the natural way, and if you seriously believe women are shamed for that, you're clearly finding the wrong people and being in the wrong places.

  • Totally Not. You're priviliged enough.

    Women in first world counties argue about "slut shaming" and "the freedom to show their upper abdomen." While I somewhat understand rape culture but not to a full degree, I believe it's your appearance and behavior that will lead to you getting raped. I know may people would disagree with me, but it's true. That's a whole other topic. Women in 3rd world counties are the only ones that need feminism and I would totally fight for them. They're slaves to their husbands, are forced to get married at the age of 7, cannot be seen without their hijabs (in a handful of counties) can only go outside when their husbands tell them to, if they report a rape most of the time they get thrown into prison or even even RAPED again, and so fourth. Compare that to some angry feminist in America whos mad because she believes she can't wear skimpy "whorish" clothing or expose her breast. Exactly. Support for 3rd world counties, 1st ones, please shut the hell up.
