You realise that 'feminism' is simply the belief women should have equal rights and status to men?.. Which leads me to this awesome quote by Caitlin Moran:

“We need to reclaim the word 'feminism'. We need the word 'feminism' back real bad. When statistics come in saying that only 29% of American women would describe themselves as feminist - and only 42% of British women - I used to think, What do you think feminism IS, ladies? What part of 'liberation for women' is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? 'Vogue' by Madonna? Jeans? Did all that good shit GET ON YOUR NERVES? Or were you just DRUNK AT THE TIME OF THE SURVEY?”

Is it? I always thought feminism was about women being better than men, I mean, it's the counterpart of machism, and machism is about that. Nice quote btw
