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. Yet people do not understand this and start calling them feminists just because ‘everybody else does?!’
But we often tend to get a wrong idea of feminism in turn giving rise to pseudo feminism- a believe where women are considered as the supreme beings and men are quashed for all the injustices done to them. Where it is believed that the only reason for a women not being able to rise above and be successful are men. How ridiculous! When on one hand we preach equality between men and women through feminism, on the other hand we say that Men are the problem to all the injustices faced my women. It is due to the sole reason that the real feminism is misinterpreted. We must know that the goal behind feminism to bring equality. But as long as we do not put an end to assigning responsibilities, duties and opportunities on a single gender, we won’t strive for true feminism.
