A movement or social philosophy that advocates legal, social, and economic equality for women. Contrary to the beliefs of some misguided individuals, it derives no particular pleasure from the genital-related misfortunes of men, being rather preoccupied with such frivolous goals as getting paid the same goddamned money for doing the same goddamned work, not being forced to have babies, and not having to put up with shit from the entertainment, advertising and fashion industries that have a vested interest in making sure women hate their bodies.
"Feminism is a benevolent force that aids in providing the best opportunities for all members of society, and anyone who believes otherwise is a paranoid, reactionary fuckwit."

*Sigh* This is getting out of hand. Feminism is the idea that everyone is equal, plain and simple. Feminists are not 'ugly dykes' and are not 'the epitome of perfection'. Women who hate men are *not* feminists. Jeez, you all need to cool it.
Gloria Steinem was a feminist.
Virginia Woolfe was a feminist.
That chick at the bar who calls all men rapists was not a feminist.

A word used, mainly by men, to categorise a woman who distinguishes herself as anything other than a sex slave or doormat.
"I bought that bitch two beers and she still won't sleep with me! Jeez, what a feminist."

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.
