The advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political,
social, and economic equality to men.
Feminism (Our human definition)
The belief in women having equal rights to men in all facets of
social life.

How does society portray feminism ?


1. The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is
about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages
women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice
witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.

2. Basically, some believe that feminists are crazy lesbian women
who practice violent acts and attempt to ruin the government.
