The Dictionary Defines Feminism….

I have been facing issues around what FEMINISM means and what feminists do etc – for quite sometime now!

Most men and some women keep on at it…. “Why do YOU follow and practise feminism when a balanced person like you should practice Equalism….” to “I am NOT a feminist, I believe in equality of gender

So dedicating this pieces to the DICTIONARIES – do you know they actually carry some interesting definitions for feminism 😉

A Dictionary – It actually has word meanings…

  1. :  the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes

  2. :  organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests

  4. : the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of womenequal to those of men.
    : (sometimes initial capital letter) an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women.

:the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities intended to achieve this state:

:The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.


I have shared 4 options from online sources above as to WHAT feminism actually means.

Each of these say the same things – feminism is wanting equal rights and opportunities for women.

So if you are a MAN or a WOMAN – who believes that women should get equal rights and opportunities – then Taaa Daaa….

You my friend are a FEMINIST!
