Neo Feminist = NEW + Feminist
Neo = "NEW" in German
Also known as “New Wave Feminist” (“New Wave Feminism”)
Men who are scared of empowered women will label these women "Neo Feminists" because they want to associate them with the militant-oriented word "Neo Nazis" - but they don't understand that the word "Neo" means "New" - NOT "Radical".
Ignorant people will use this word to shame and disparage people who fight for gender equal rights.
It’s ANOTHER under-handed way that the male dominant society wishes to control your views of empowered women.
Intelligent people will be mindful of the context in which the word is being used. Paying attention to the tone, inflection and context in which someone uses the word "Neo Feminist" says more about the person saying it than the actual meaning of the word.
"I am not afraid to declare it to the world: I am proud to be a New Wave Feminist. I will not be shamed by an idiot who calls me a Neo Feminist."
