The basic motive of feminism was to bring women to an equal place as men, feminism was supposed to be a movement with the only motive of empowering women upto the point where women and men both would be considered equal to each other.
In the current scenario many people have interpreted it as a movement to create women domination over the world.
Feminism is totally different than patriarchy, patriarchy describes the society where men are supposed to dominate over every other gender, patriarchy is a type of society where men are considered as the most respected and strong human upon the land and feminism tends to change the fact that men rule the world, feminism was supposed to stand out for equality of women. Feminism was supposed to explain people that both men and women are equal and both can rule the world.
Today’s generation have interpreted feminism as the fact that it is supposed to outcaste men and keep women above all which is not the actual definition of feminism.
Yes, too many meanings have been given to feminism and because of that the movement has lost it’s actual significance.
