Feminism is a range of social movements, political movements and ideologies that aim to define and establish the political, economic, personal, and social equality of the sexes.

This seems old fashion but believe it or not, woman are still not equal to men. In the western world we already came a long way, starting with our mothers protesting on the barriers for the right to vote, use birth control and decide over our own bodies.

Numerous feminist movements and ideologies have developed over the years and represent different viewpoints and aims. Traditionally, since the 19th century first wave liberal feminism that sought political and legal equality through reforms within a liberal democratic framework was contrasted with labor-based proletarian women’s movements that over time developed into socialist and marxist feminism based on class struggle theory. Since the 1960s both of these traditions are also contrasted with radical feminism that arose from the radical wing of second-wave feminism and that calls for a radical reordering of society to eliminate male supremacy; together liberal, socialist and radical feminism are sometimes called the “Big Three” schools of feminist thought. Since the late 20th century many newer forms of feminisms have emerged. Some forms of feminism have been criticized for taking into account only white, middle class, college-educated, heterosexual, or cisgender perspectives. These criticisms have led to the creation of ethnically specific or multicultural forms of feminism, such as black feminism and intersectional feminism
