Get equal rights for women! In the US at the moment this may include issues such as equal pay, and the right to use birth control.

Feminist theory extends the feminism movement into theoretical and/or political discourse. Feminists aim to understand and bring awareness to gender inequality and the promotion of women's interests. Feminism explores such themes as discrimination, objectification, stereotyping and oppression.

Yes, Islamic feminism is truly feminism just as much as feminism within any other religion. Feminism is about the fight for equality for women with men, Muslims can support this as much as anyone else.

No, of course feminism is not against the law. Feminism is the movement seeking to make men and women equal.

Feminism is the assertion that women have been historically disadvantaged relative to men, and a commitment to changing oppressive structures. It is the movement towards the social, politcal, and economic equality of all people. Eco-feminism is a specific sub-set of feminism that opposes all forms of dominance: men over women, heterosexuals over homosexuals, and humans over animals (this last point is crucial in making it eco-feminism instead of just general feminism). Eco-feminism focuses on how hierarchies are linked and how these hierarchies affect not only people, but also the natural world.

Some critics have argued that modern feminism has lost its principles. However, feminism is not a stationary idea, and has to change in order to continue to be useful. Feminism has gone through many phases or waves since its advent in the United States, from First Wave Feminism all the way to Fourth Wave Feminism. Just within the U.S. feminism has changed from a movement focused on getting women the vote, and from being a movement largely run only by white, middle-class straight women, to a feminism that attempts to be more inclusive to all women, regardless of their race, ability, sexuality, religion, class and other identities. Feminism has branched into numerous subsets, such as eco-feminism, radical feminism, and (Multi)Cultural feminism, in an attempt to acknowledge all women and all their experiences. Feminism in different countries takes different forms and means different things. So feminism has changed in many ways since its advent, but it has not lost its principles. Feminism still seeks to bring equality to women, and dismantling, and dismantling oppressive institutions, which are what its principles have always been.

Feminism is fighting for the rights and empowerment as well as equity for women.

Yes, society still needs feminism because feminism is a movement that seeks to bring gender equality and society hasn't achieved this yet. Feminism seeks to deal with issues of gender inequality and other forms of oppression such as racism, until everyone is equal within society feminism will exist.

One common misperceptions of feminism is that feminists hate men. That is not true.

It defeats the purpose of feminism to force someone into it. Feminsim holds that everyone should be freee and equal, so forcing someone into feminism, is, in fact, anti-feminist.
