The belief that women are (or should be considered as)either entirely equal or superior to men in intelligence, physical traits, or whatever else one could come up with. Okay, look, there's some interesting things to consider when it comes to how women and men are treated in society. It is surprising how some feminists use social injustices done to them in the past to justify their superiority. Of course women should be considered equal when it comes to value of life or starting wages (let the quality of work speak for itself, not gender you big business losers). Women should be able to be independant and make their own choices and let them BE HEARD. But, come on ladies, the feminazis and female chauvinists out there, let's not controdict ourselves here! You say that men being superior to women is wrong (true); people generally have the idea that women being raped or abused is totally wrong (which is totally true because it's HORRIBLE and WRONG and rapists deserve to GO TO HELL AND BURN). But pain is pain and inferiority is inferiority no matter who experiences it; some are men, some are women, but we all are human. People who are willing to do the very thing they loathe (such as forcing the opposite gender into inferiority) is no better than the people who did it to them first. When a women is abused by a man, we say "leave that bastard." When a man is abused by a woman, we sympathize with the woman, who usually complains of angry girl disease or something. Who holds the door for whom? That's right, men hold the door, pull out the chair, and places their coats over puddles for women. Yes, some men are total jerks, but some women are too. Women can rape and objectify men just like men can rape and objectify women. Women have their strengths and weaknesses just like men do. Women weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as men, and men weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as women. It's not about equality (what a crappy world it would be if everyone was the same), it's about balance. Why not embrace the things that make you YOU, with gender playing the role as gender only (I know, way too optimistic to be true but we can try, can't we)? Why not work on creating a world where people can be respected for the things they can do than the things they can't instead of COMPLAINING about everything? Racists, sexists, antisemitists, people against homosexuals, anyone who "hates" someone for any unjustifiable reason other than "just 'cause" (most reasons are stupid enough to be just so)only create imbalance. I mean, if some traumatic experience happened to you and you can't possibly heal and not be against a certain group, well, you're still hurting too, I understand that. Still, that gives you no right to lay that hurt upon innocent people (if you are mentally capable to know what you are doing). And no, being a feminist doesn't make you a lesbian or manly or whatever; your voice should be heard too, just, tone it down and focus on solving the issues rather than making more! I know, not a definition, but neither are a lot of other entries either (check out racism)...Oh, and by the way, I am 100% WOMAN, and can be proud of it without the need to belittle men. That's why I talk so much (ha). I'm against people using inequality to justify their own horribly prejudiced actions, that's all. Oh, and look at all the subtypes of feminists before anyone insists that feminists are only women who want men and women to be treated equal. Feminists are individuals with individual minds, you know. Don't use bias to support bias, please. It doesn't convince anyone but the insane and maybe your mother.
Consider the many forms of feminism: Amazon, Anarchist, Black, Chicana, Christian, Cultural, Difference, Eco, Equity, Equality, Fat, Gender, Individualist, Islamic, Jewish, Lesbian, Liberal, Marxist, Modern, New, Postmodern, Pro-life, Radical, Religious, Separatist, Sex-positive, Social, Socialist, Trans, Womanism. Not all forms or uses of feminism is justifiable. Feminism is necessary as a social movement but can be just as damaging once a group of mental or ignorant people misuse it.

In the USA, a movement created by the government to turn non-taxable labor (raising children) into taxed labor thus stealing more money from an ignorant population of tax slaves. Women foolishly believe this has some aim of helping women when it has only led to miserable working women buried in student loan debt who aren't even free to raise their own children. Hitler enacted free child are right away too..not to help women but to start the indoctrination of children even earlier. This movement has basically destroyed the family unit in the USA leaving unwed births at more than 50%.
Looking back on her life choices and down the barrel of 100k in school loans the professional woman now wonders why if feminism was about choices and equality....why was being a stay at home mother never a choice...

A redundant movement that granted women all wonderful things men earned without earning them (the right to vote which men only had because they had to pay for it with conscription which means they're life could be put on the line at any moment). The movement has devolved into a hate movement where anything not giving women special treatment is hating women thus justify hate against men. The movement as a whole refuses to fact check anything like "women get paid 25% less then men" which is false, they EARN 25% less because they take lower paying jobs and don't work overtime as much... women are paid the same period it's in the books. The movement is just hate and will only be hate, they don't give a shit about anyone but women and will trample men to get what they want. We are not insecure, WE just see through your bullshit.
"Feminism, the inability for women to accept reality so they have to blame things on others"
"I showed a feminist yesterday that it is illegal to pay women less". "What did she say?". "She looked at it and said patriarchy and to stop oppressing her"

The belief that females should, at the time of belief, be given more power than they currently have. This is regardless of the current male state of power, whether it be at its lowest or highest. Also, both men and women can be feminists.

Note: Feminism is NOT the belief that women and men should be equal, that is known as egalitarianism.
John: Why is Mary a feminist?
Max: she thinks women are better than men.
John: Isn't that sexism?
Max: By her logic, only men can be sexist.
John: so feminism is hating men?
Max: not usually, at least as long as women really are opressed.

The feminist movement was something that occurred really throughout the 20th century. Starting in 1920 when wen gained the right to vote and again in the 1980's when women really started to break away from their traditional roles in western society.

These days feminism is being rejected by many young women. This is because these days young girls feel they have just as much opportunity to make a living as men.

Now days the connotation of feminism has changed from the original denotation of the word. Now feminism has a new common meaning "believing women deserve special treatment" while this is NOT the actual dictionary definition of the word, it is what most people mean when they talk about feminism these days.

Consequently, many young women feel the need for change has past and with it the need to identify as a feminist.

The young women who still identify with feminism are on the more "radical" side of the scale and feel women are still not equal and want even more benefits given on top if the affirmative action already provided for being a women in western society (more scholarship opportunities, more access to government assisted living, and government subsidies for owning their own business). These are the radical women who have given feminism a bad name.
Example of the new connotation of a feminism:

"Goddamn did you hear that bitch talking about how employers should have to pay for their female employees' birth control and pregnancy tests?!"

"Yea man! That chick's gotta be a feminist."
