Many couples are using feminists’ ideology in their married relationship now the house responsibility burden does not fall, one person, both are equally involved in managing. Still, there are anti-feminist who are promoting a very wrong mindset that women are using feminism for the wrong reason.

Some people think we need feminism today, yet nothing may be more distant from reality. Women have been struggling for equal opportunities and oppression for hundreds of years, but certain struggles, such as the right to vote and equal access to education, have been achieved, but, in every facet of life, women still suffer disproportionately from all sorts of violence and discrimination. The concept of feminism represents a history of various conflicts and as comprehension is expanded, the term has been understood in a more complicated way. Feminism can often be regarded as a movement to eradicate sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression. In local or world history, there have been many remarkable women, but not always all of whom have been proponents of women’s issues. The women’s movement consists of women and men who work and battle to create equality between women and women and to enhance the lives of women in society. Women have traditionally been limited to the house in most countries as children, wives, and mothers and we are sometimes only conscious of women in history because of their relationship with great men. Of course, many women have played a major part in cultural and political life throughout history, but they are unseen. The first wave of feminism included huge rallies, newspaper printing, discussions, and the foundation of women’s organizations everywhere. Women in most nations in Europe and in North America obtained the right to vote by the 1920s. The feminist movement resurged in Western Europe and the USA in the 1970s. Although the second wave of feminism was intended to attain ‘the freedom of women,’ different groups had differing thoughts on how to do it. Liberal women advocated better equality laws and the reform of schools, churches, and media. The third wave of feminism relates mostly to the Americans in the 1990s and reacted to the pushback from conservative media and politicians that announced the end of feminism. In Susan Faludi’s book Backlash, the term ‘backlash’ is popularised. Women’s rights should not be seen as special rights: they are human rights enshrined in international human rights and other documents, including the rights to freedom from discrimination, to life, to torture, to privacy, access to health, to decent living conditions, to safety, and much more. Women’s rights are not to be considered special rights.DISHA SAPKALEParticipant@42dishaAugust 13, 2021 at 10:31 pm #33424

Feminism is a concept that was not prominent before the beginning of this century. It was a topic that remained impermissible for many years. However, the scenario changed, the importance of feminism emerged in society. Women became more empowered and fearless, now they are aware of their rights and can raise their voices. After a long battle for entitlement and equality, women found acknowledgment in society. Women are to this day playing a remarkable role in society as a politician, entrepreneurs, socialists, administrators, economists, and they are proactive in all their other duties as well. Men have started to accept women’s pivotal role in building a better environment whether in the workplace or at home. The stigma around issues like menstruation, widow remarriage, and many other illogical beliefs have been broken. While women across the world continue to break the shackles that hamper their growth, society also accepts their stand. These accomplishments occurred by the coming of feminism which granted women their rights, gave them voice and freedom to study, work and stand shoulder to shoulder with men in all aspects.
Earlier, women did not have liberty and freedom, they have to face numerous issues like lack of education, gender discrimination, gender pay gap, dowry-related problems, domestic violence, etc. Since the arrival of Feminism, the portrayal of women has changed drastically. Society has become more pragmatic towards gender equality and is taking efforts to make a positive space for women in the community.
Feminism to a great extent brought a substantial change in women’s life. It was able to give women their well-deserved position, removed stereotypical norms, and gave women equal importance in society. There is no denying that sexism, misogyny, and pseudo-feminism persist even in the modern world but unless there are people who believe and encourage feminism, it will continue to impact the masses and hopefully bring an essential difference in society.038 deepika SinghParticipant@038-deepikaFebruary 8, 2022 at 1:39 pm #33982
