Feminism is the belief system that women and men are equal.
While the stereotype of cuttroat feminists is still burned into the minds of the close-minded (see the other definitions for feminism)it is only a derogatory stereotype used primarily by the ignorant. Feminism is believeing that women deserve the same rights, respect, and chances as men.
