A man or woman who fights for women's issues, but usually used for women.
An obnoxious word that is built off of the word "hero", which is not native to English and etymologically unrelated to "he" and "she". "Hero", strictly speaking, is gender neutral now and "shero" specifies gender, contrary to feminist efforts to make language gender-neutral; way to shoot yourselves in the foot, feminists.
"Heroine" can be used in a positive way; drop the "shero" and use "heroine" to describe a strong, intelligent woman and the connotations will change. Or just use "hero" if you don't want to differentiate.
