The radical notion that women are people too.
Feminism: the right to vote, work, study, own property, have freedom of movement, be free of sexual harassment - for ALL adults.

*Sigh* This is getting out of hand. Feminism is the idea that everyone is equal, plain and simple. Feminists are not 'ugly dykes' and are not 'the epitome of perfection'. Women who hate men are *not* feminists. Jeez, you all need to cool it.
Gloria Steinem was a feminist.
Virginia Woolfe was a feminist.
That chick at the bar who calls all men rapists was not a feminist.

1. The practice and/or idea that women and men are equal.
Mary shrugged off the stereotype of the man-hating feminist and embraced FEMINISM when she realized that it could potentially help her receive higher pay at work and aid her in countless other areas of her life.

A movement or social philosophy that advocates legal, social, and economic equality for women. Contrary to the beliefs of some misguided individuals, it derives no particular pleasure from the genital-related misfortunes of men, being rather preoccupied with such frivolous goals as getting paid the same goddamned money for doing the same goddamned work, not being forced to have babies, and not having to put up with shit from the entertainment, advertising and fashion industries that have a vested interest in making sure women hate their bodies.
"Feminism is a benevolent force that aids in providing the best opportunities for all members of society, and anyone who believes otherwise is a paranoid, reactionary fuckwit."

Feminism is a broad subject with many valid definitions. Among them the most popular and widely accepted is that it is the radical notion:

"that women are in fact human beings with the same basic human rights and needs for self fullfillment as men."

A definition that might seem flat and dumb to the less educated masses who might not consider the short historic period this has been an accepted idea. (some are still arguing.)

There are many challenges yet to conquer for the modern feminist, you need only take a look at the other definitions offered at this very site to get a general feeling for the hassle and dicrimination a woman or man feminist might encounter daily.
Next time ignorant suckers bemoan the fact that they no longer have the legal responcibility of the woman they choose to mary, the fact that they no longer have to fear getting a girl pregnant each time they have sex and the fact that they can afford the newest wide screen tv because their significant other was able to chip in cause she's like getting payed soon to be eaqually at her job. Take a time to think about what feminism gave you for free while you was busy scratching your balls and feeling underprivileged.

A gift. Men are in a world where they are bombarded with media, largely pornography, that tells them that women are for one purpose: to look at and have sex with. Pornography is full of misogyny. Feminists want to make men human again; they want them to act like real human beings who think of women as real human beings too and not just as a package that is invisible without breast implants, a small waist, high heels...ect... Feminists see that men are raping women because pornography makes it seem like this is okay. Feminists see that pornography has integrated itself into our culture and American society so much that exercise classes consist of strip tease and 4 year olds are wearing mini-skirts. To clarify, this is one breed of feminism. Other feminists find pornography, an industry that puts women through miserable treatment and diseases, liberating. These other feminists find it liberating for women to fake orgasms and consistantly fulfill the desires of men.
Radical Feminism wants women to possess "power" consistantly through avenues other than sexuality. Radical Feminism wants to never have a woman's face covered in cum ever again.

A word used, mainly by men, to categorise a woman who distinguishes herself as anything other than a sex slave or doormat.
"I bought that bitch two beers and she still won't sleep with me! Jeez, what a feminist."
