A Feminist is a person who believes that men and women are equal. This is becoming more common in society
There are many groups of Feminists but only a minority of groups,(Radical's) think that Men are the reason women are oppressed. The rest just seek equality between the sexes.
Feminists have supported and campaigned for the passing of laws in Britain such as:
-Equal Pay Act
-Sex Discrimination Act
-Employment Protection Act (Maternity/Paternity leave)
These are not extreme and can work for the protection of both men and women.
