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?

History

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.”

Mistake

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.

      I appreciate the point of view, opinions are what helps everyone realize the story from the other side.

      But, feminist movements are not what will help achieve​ equality of rights, unity of women is what is essentially required. I myself am not an anti feminist but the only way peace is possible is through women helping one another which is not the case. Competition and complexes make women an enemy of their own kind. If women don't acknowledge one another they can never gain anything.

      Phyllis Schlafly is hardly an appropriate spokesperson for feminism, but thanks for the article on behalf of women.

      Less pay, abuse, and unequal opportunity are not things women have imagined. They are realities for too many women today and throughout history. Still, anything that sheds light on the accomplishments of women in spite of those barriers is appreciated.
