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."

A word made to accelerate the rights of women over men, commonly used in the early 20th century to equalize gender opportunities, such as voting and work rights. Commonly used by females on social media to start arguments about why women are de-moralized by statements of one male individual, or as an excuse to call males "oppressed white guys." Commonly confused with Gender Equality.
Correct usage: "Man, women cant work at McDonalds anymore. We need some feminism here so that women can have the same rights as men!"
Incorrect usage: Peter; "Hey Miranda, Why do all the girls I like date the assholes?" Miranda; "OH MY GOD PETER THATS SEXIST FUCKING DOUCHEBAG YOURE FRIENDZONED OH MY GOD FEMINISTS ASSEMBLE AND KICK THIS OPPRESSED WHITE GUYS ASSHOLE"

Feminism was about equality.Now (Modern Feminism) is about retarded women with no brain and no logic, bitching about everything men do and acting always like they are a victim.If you see a modern feminist you should shoot her/him immediately and make the world a better place.
Feminism is no more about equality.It is about retarded uneducated whores

The fetishization of species-wide female incompetence through reinforcement of in-group preference among females, and out-group preference among males.
Feminism is the most obvious antonym of Egalitarianism, in terms of etymology.

Trash
Hey, what's that fat woman with the side shaved hair doing yelling at every man she sees?

That, my friend, is a feminist. Also known as Trash. The reason why she's yelling at every man is because most woman who think we need feminism are incredibly sexist against men.

Here's the problems defining feminism:

1. The definition is old as fuck and if you think the meanings of words don't change over time or vary from culture to culture then you're delusional, and using an appeal to definition fallacy.

2. Feminism is a movement, and as with all movements their goals change over time.

In short, the current dictionary definition is unreliable. Modern feminists campaign for "safe spaces" (spaces in which free speech is shit on, sometimes segregated by race and gender), an end to "man-spreading". More radicals will call for things such as national castration day and shipping of all men to concentration camps. If you identify as a feminist, and you do not believe in the false victim narratives, the concepts of patriarchy, toxic masculinity and internalised misogyny, then my question to you is why on earth would you tie yourself to a movement that by in large does. Feminism does not equal equality, it's simply a vehicle towards it; unfortunately, the vehicle bounced right off the metaphorical wall of equality and got launched so far back that the driver decided to say "fuck it" and reverse as far as they could. If you wish to be someone who believes in equality without being tied down to a movement so incompetent that they believe that the gender wage gap is down to sexism, I suggest you look into egalitarianism.
What a surprise, that teacher force feeding those young girls identity politics and a victim narrative bigger than Kim Kardashians ass is a big advocate for feminism
