an idea that involves the fair and equal treatment of people, regardless of their gender. A feminist believes that while women are physically different from and think differently about some things than men, this does not make either superior or inferior, it just means that they are different and should not be used as a basis for preferential treatment either way. Supporters of equal treatment for both genders are called feminists, whether or not they themselves are female.
Note: some feminists, often referred to as feminazis, have given feminism a bad name by claiming that men are evil and that oppression lurks everywhere. This is unfortunate, as real feminism is about gender equality.
Feminism means that women are not *better* than men, just different from them, and should not be treated any better or worse than men for it.

A political movement, the goal of which is EQUAL rights for men and women. Many people view feminism as a negative movement. There are many branches of feminism such as Eco-Feminism, Womanism, Liberal and Radical Feminism. Feminists are more than just bra burning man haters. They are anyone who believes in equal rights for women and men!

A movement to promote equality and fight oppression. That it does so at the expense of male power and privilege is a result of patriarchy, not feminism.
Feminism allows you to look at the world in a new light.

A movement created to promote equal rights of men and women alike, simply put.

Many definitions try to degrade this notion by stating that it has backfired and turned into a reason for hating men. This is not the case. The reason people would think this is because in today's society many men are still raised on the notion that women are inferior and must be oppressed. They therefore promote hate against equal rights between men and women and try to degrade it in any way possible. Note that not all men are like this, but the majority are.

There will always be sexist men. That is the unfortunate truth.
Feminism is a notion to equalize the fields and make people realize that men and women are equal in every way.

Feminism does NOT support hate against men, it merely states that men are NOT SUPERIOR TO WOMEN. Get it in your goddamn heads, people.

“Feminism is the idea that we can make both sexes equal by focusing solely on the issues of one of them.”

Judging by what it does feminism is a movement that seeks superior rights and privileges for women while hiding under the guise of "equality"

Feminists tend to claim that their movement is about "equality" and often use the dictionary definition as proof. But the thing is that what the dictionary says and what feminism does are two completely different things. Actions speak louder than words, therefore feminism should be judge by what it does instead of by what the book says. And through its actions the feminist movement has constantly shows that it isn't about equality, but is actually about female supremacy and misandry - skewed the system in women's favor, seeking superior rights & privileges for women, demonizing men & boys etc.. It is very obvious that "equality" is nothing more than a mask that the feminist movement uses to conceal its female supremacist and anti-male agendas.
