The feminist movement was something that occurred really throughout the 20th century. Starting in 1920 when wen gained the right to vote and again in the 1980's when women really started to break away from their traditional roles in western society.

These days feminism is being rejected by many young women. This is because these days young girls feel they have just as much opportunity to make a living as men.

Now days the connotation of feminism has changed from the original denotation of the word. Now feminism has a new common meaning "believing women deserve special treatment" while this is NOT the actual dictionary definition of the word, it is what most people mean when they talk about feminism these days.

Consequently, many young women feel the need for change has past and with it the need to identify as a feminist.

The young women who still identify with feminism are on the more "radical" side of the scale and feel women are still not equal and want even more benefits given on top if the affirmative action already provided for being a women in western society (more scholarship opportunities, more access to government assisted living, and government subsidies for owning their own business). These are the radical women who have given feminism a bad name.
Example of the new connotation of a feminism:

"Goddamn did you hear that bitch talking about how employers should have to pay for their female employees' birth control and pregnancy tests?!"

"Yea man! That chick's gotta be a feminist."

Feminism was about equality.Now (Modern Feminism) is about retarded women with no brain and no logic, bitching about everything men do and acting always like they are a victim.If you see a modern feminist you should shoot her/him immediately and make the world a better place.
Feminism is no more about equality.It is about retarded uneducated whores

Feminism is a movement started by old faggot hags on their period.
Feminists strive for dominance, not equality.

A left-wing movement in Western culture originating in the 1960's that seeks socio-economic equality between men and women.

Proponents of the movements cite years of hardship by women when they could not access the same basic privileges as men (e.g. such as the right to vote). They argue that even though throughout history most human societies have been patriarchal, rapid advances in the past hundred years have made it necessary to rethink the status of women in relation to men. They cite that the extremes of living in a patriarchal society such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and discrimination against women as their primary reasons for supporting feminism.

Opponents of the movement argue that feminism has gone too far and has accomplished most of its original goals. They argue that if it proceeds any further, there is a real danger that feminism will go on to elevate the status of women and result in a generation of emasculated men. They add that feminism has hurt gender roles and made the typical family structure unstable and caused an increase in divorces, breakups, abortions, etc.. With a surplus of women working, they argue that this has resulted in them them being away from their spouse and children and them spending less time at home.
The symbolic poster of feminism reads:

Femism is a collection of ideologies that have existed for around 200 years or so. It is used as a blanket term for many things, but really there are as many types of feminism as there are cats. At its root, feminism has been about equal rights for women, (votes, pay, legal, social, respect).

Some people accuse feminists of hating men or viewing women as superior. Some radfems are like that, but most aren't. The very difficult struggles of women in the 20th century has resulted in signifigant gains for women IN 1ST WORLD COUNTRIES, to the point where some crazies call men worse off than women. Feminism isn't solely focused on women (it's more focused on womens issues, but most fems don't ignore men's issues), most feminists do not view men as inferior.

Feminists are mostly proponents of that people a. shouldn't judge based on gender and b. aren't limited by their biology. Thanks to feminists, sexism and rape are despised, pay diff. and legal discrim. are illegal, sex is much less taboo, the patriachy is gone and now women don't obey husbands or fathers, among many others. Now to the dark side. An new feminist ideology has emerged, not focusing on places that need feminism, like Iran where women's rights are in the dark ages, they instead focus on people's free speech first world countries. These feminists focus on a very vauge patriachy, and rape culture, and use it as an escuse to control people's speech. Remeber that it is a diverse label and you should be fine.
Past:
Feminist & feminism supporters: "we want the right to vote and equal pay!"
Man #1: "I'm too poor to care"
Man #2: "you crazy woman"
Man #3: "This cannot happen. If you seccede then I can't keep paying you a dime a week to make clothes in my factory"
Now:
Man asks a girl out, she says fuck you loser, man calls her a bitch
Nearby Feminist: "YOU USED A GENDERED SLUR, YOU MISOGYNISTIC BASTARD, YOU CONTRIBUTE TO RAPE CULTURE"

A wonderful ideology that depraved misogynists love to hate.
Feminism is

"the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" --- merriam webster dictionary

Those who oppose feminism by default agree with misogyny and sexism (see other definitions of feminism)
