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.

A umbrella term used to define a huge range of idea's around women's rights. The belief that misogyny (the hatred of women) is wrong.
If you look at the other definitions of this word that are written by misogynists, you may see why feminism is so important.

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!
"I support feminism because I believe woman are just as capable as 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.

The belief that women and men are equal, and the movement that has arisen to support that idea. Feminism can generally be divided into three periods in the United States:
First Wave- 1800's-1920's. The passage of the 19th Ammendment is commonly seen as the culminating event of this phase.
Second Wave- 1950's-1980's.This is often seen as the high point of the Women's Movement in the US. The failure of the Equal Rights Ammendment's passage is seen as the endpoint of this period.
Third Wave- 1990's-present. Often seen as a more theoretically-driven phase, sometimes incorrectly referred to as post-feminism.
Thanks to feminism, women now have the right to vote, the right to control their own property and bodies, and the right to support themselves by working outside the home.

1. The radical idea that women are people.

2. A social movement created by those who believe that women are people.

3. Something a women is accused of believing in if she does or says anything that implies she believes she is a person.

(Often incorrectly mistaken with misandry and lesbianism)
1) Someone who does not agree with feminism by default agrees with sexism. (Denying gender equality is the same as saying one or the other gender is superior.)

2) Historians have identified three distinct waves of Feminism.

3) See almost every other definition of feminism or feminist listed here.

The radical notion that women are people too.
Feminism: the right to vote, work, study, own property, have freedom of movement, be free of sexual harassment - for ALL adults.
