Feminism is a collection of movements and ideologies aimed at defining, establishing, and defending a state of equal political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in educ... ation and employment. A feminist advocates or supports the rights and equality of women.Feminist theory, which emerged from feminist movements, aims to understand the nature of gender inequality by examining women's social roles and lived experience; it has developed theories in a variety of disciplines in order to respond to issues such as the social construction of sex and gender. Some of the earlier forms of feminism have been criticized for taking into account only white, middle-class, educated perspectives. This led to the creation of ethnically specific or multiculturalist forms of feminism.Feminist activists campaign for women's rights – such as in contract law, property, and voting – while also promoting bodily integrity, autonomy, and reproductive rights for women   more

MRAs and Equalists are not gender equality movements. Feminism is the only gender equality movement.

I hate the idea that feminists have where if you don't identify as a feminist your not for gender equality. Thats not true egalitarians like myself don't identify as a feminist because their community is repulsive egalitarians are for true equality.

I have to agree with Chimera. I'll also go a step farther ... I never felt (and I'm 54) that the Feminism movement helped me. In my 20's, I could have made a pretty solid argument that it only created tension, suspicion, even segregation -- the men against the women everywhere (specifically in the workplace)! It is still very much a man's world. Most women do better to learn how to work & thrive in it, by playing by the male rules. In other words, learn how to beat them at their own game. You gain respect of male colleagues, etc., faster than if you jump on the Feminist soapbox!
