Top Definition
an ideology that focuses on woman being treated as equals to men. There is no sexism in this concept- because we live in a patriarchal society, males are automatically given a superior position. calling feminism sexist is also ignoring centuries of history where men have oppressed women.

a common misconception about feminism is that one is supporting woman's equality but opposing man's. This is not true. Supporting something like gay rights doesn't mean you're against a straight person's rights, and the same goes for feminism in terms of equality between the sexes.
woman:
I refused to receive a higher pay check than my male co-worker for doing the same amount of work because i support feminism.

man:
I refused to receive a higher pay check than my female co-worker for doing the same amount of work because i support feminism.
