The real meaning of feminism is – equal rights to women as men. Men and women should have equal political, social and economical rights. Feminism= equality. This is how simple feminism is. Feminism is purely a movement which intends to enlighten people with a goal of improving gender equality and strengthening women’s status our society. It’s main aim is to lift up women and bring them to the same level as men. It gives women the much needed voice in a patriarchal word. It ensures that women are paid equally for the same work and are not abused by men. It supports equality in education and opportunities. People who are unaware of the real meaning of feminism often end up being a pseudo feminists, who want a world ruled by women. They mock innocent men and try to resolve all injustices done on women my targeting and demeaning men. Nowadays more and more men have started becoming victims of pseudo feminism. For instance, if a woman comes out about her defamation and harassment by a man, people start blinding believing the girl without any proofs without even letting the man speak in his defence. They start bashing the guy without listening to his part of the story. Just like a rotten apple spoils the whole barrel there are some people whose deceiving ideologies has destroyed the true meaning of feminism. Instead of bringing equality between genders they tend to blame men for all the injustices done to women. They believe they that in order to uplift one gender there is a need to suppress the other. People believe that feminists want to control the world and put men down. While we must know that this is not Feminism. If you believe in the equality of women as men then you are a feminists. Feminism never aims to degrade any gender.
