    Is feminism becoming a man-bashing movement and does it really teach equality?

    Of course it teaches equality, because feminism recognizes the harmful impact a patriarchal society has on men, too. Not only does feminism seek to empower women and put them on a level playing field with men, it also seeks to help other disenfranchised groups - like people of color, trans individuals, those struggling with mental illness, etc.

    If it's not intersectional feminism, it's not real feminism.

      But if a larger group of people begin to support the intersectional beliefs when does it corrupt the entire movement enough to change what it stands for.

    If a movement begins to be polluted in idea, kind of like communism towards socialism, is it still a valid movement to spread?

    If not for the feminist movement I would not have the vote. I would not hold my current job. I would not be able to own property. In fact. I would BE the property of my husband. He could treat me however he wanted and rape or beat me as he saw fit.

    I'd like to say thanks to all the women who went before me, who suffered, bled, stood up again when they got knocked down, went to jail and even died so I could vote in the next election, own my own business, and have rights if my husband divorces me. I am not now entirely equal with men under the law but am getting closer to it every day it seems.

    When I look at an older woman I see a young woman who got told to mind her place, who trained a man to become her own boss, who made pennies on the dollar of her male co-workers, who had no defense against sexual harassment or even rape in the workplace other than quitting, I know I owe older women for every baby step they took that helped make my life easier.

    You don't have to like every view held by everyone calling themselves a feminist these days. Just don't forget what the movement accomplished, what our mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers suffered, and the difference they made for us.

      This answer almost brought me to tears, and it really helped me to understand what the movement is all about. Thank you for the insight.
