Will Feminism change the future?
What is Feminism?
"Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to such opportunities for men." (Wikipedia)
Feminism is fighting for the right of women, equal in terms of women and men. But is feminism really what that's all about?
Throughout time, man has been above woman. Is that really the case?
Who ruled Egypt for 21 years? Who was the leading social worker of all times? Who was the greatest monarch of England? Who gave birth to Jesus? Who was the author of the famous books, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma so on...?
Were they all men? Of course not! Cleopatra, Mother Teresa, Queen Elizabeth, Mary and Jane Austen. Only a few of the many women who played a great role in society. Can they be called feminists? I doubt that. Despite their intellect and wisdom, no evidence proves they were feminists.
How Feminism can effect the future?
Feminism has motivated women around the world to change things the way they were. At most, to work and leave the house.
Women already played a very important role in the world. Without realizing it they threw away the most important things that build up society. Children are the future. So whose staying behind and teaching them wisdom of life? No one.
Feminism is in fact a sweet lie.

“The feminist movement taught women to see themselves as victims of an oppressive patriarchy....Self-imposed victimhood is not a recipe for happiness.”
The mistake is that women are the ones who considered themselves inferior than men, women already had an amazing and beautiful part in the world. God made them mothers, bestowed them beauty and gave them wisdom to create the future. Why unsatisfied?
Mother nature, motherland, all these phrases were made due to their importance. Where they went wrong was to become equal to men to do the same thing as men, when in reality women play a role above the role of man, something men can never do. Women are the foundation that helped create a peaceful world.
