Feminism in the west is plain bullshit, is just giving women advantages and forbidding men from having them, we have women on men domestic violence cases and rape cases, and those mean nothing, for instance.
As for the east, women are still oppressed, however, if it's meant to be stopped, it requires actual activism, not some nitpicky ideology as feminism
I do not believe feminism is needed in countries such as the u.S as equality between the genders has been achieved in western society. However feminism is needed in countries such as those in the Middle East where women are treated as property as well as other countries such as Japan, China, and Mongolia.
While in the United States and other western countries, feminism is not something that is required, it is most certainly required in lesser developed areas. Studies have shown that the empowerment and education of women has a strong correlation and causation with a country's human development index. Women being more involved in their education and profession means lower birth rates and sexually-transmitted diseases. There is also a tremendous economic benefit through empowering a previously uninvolved sector of the population. Gender biases will always exist, and there needs to always be a way to combat these.
Feminism does not mean that woman have a greater amount of right or benefits: it simply means that woman are EQUAL to men. Although in the west, woman are allowed to get a education, a lot of them are still not paid equally to their male counterparts. Furthermore, society heavily judges woman. In africa and the east, woman are still not given even a primary education. Meanwhile in Saudi , woman aren't even allowed to drive. The list of horrible things woman have to face doesn't end their and continues on to FGM, honour killings and so much more.
I'm not saying that men should be taken lightly in rape cases. I'm saying that females should have EQUAL rights to men, not more.
Of course, feminism doesn't really exist in the western world anymore, that is wanting equal rights. Women already have equal rights. Modern-day feminism is nothing more than men bashing and wanting privileges for women, along with a whole lot of made up bullshit, like the wage gap myth that has been thoroughly debunked.
Feminists need to GROW UP. There is no such thing as wage gaps and unequal rights. When a man does crap to you and you happen to be female, grow some balls and learn that just because your female doesn't mean everyone's going to hate you. Seriously. This is like saying 'MEN ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE ONLY WOMEN ARE TEACHERS!' Sweet God. Most feminists are pushy, sensitive sad 22 year olds hiding in their attic because they think everybody hates them, which, most of the time, is the case.
Three words: HUGH MUNGUS WOT?
We do not need feminism in 2016 as women have already gotten their rights.They already had the basic rights, any more rights to be gained for women would be extra privileges. Feminism is currently focused on non-important issues.Feminism should not be present in the middle east as defying a conservative culture would be unfair as a culture becomes conservative because it has worked.Women not allowed to show their faces have actually reduced the probability of her cheating.
A research by Huffington post has shown that 87% of women are willing to strive for gender equality but only less than 20% of women call themselves a feminist in the United States of America. In the UK, the numbers get worse. More than 90% of women believe that men and women should be equal but only less than 7% are feminists. Why? Feminism is simply not what it claimed to be anymore.
Feminism has turned into something bad, 3rd wave feminism does not fight for women's basic rights, but fights for women superiority. Arguing that women should have the same rights as men, but not the same responsibilities. I.E: Feminists against women signing up for the draft. And banning the word bossy. And these kinds of things are becoming very much "mainstream".

Traditional strong societies have been Patriarchal.
Feminist societies collapse from within,women are not loyal to the nations and civilization they belong to,MEN ARE.
Sure women need to be treated better especially in Third World,but women could serve best the nations and regions they belong to by making lots of children and taking care of them.
Feminism has already done most of its job in the west and now it's turning into a cesspool of stupid shit like "mansplaining" and "manspreading". That, plus the fact that women have huge advantages compared to men, like being taken seriously in rape cases, means to me it's dead now
