…Talk about violence.


Feminism is a term commonly associated with violence.

However,Oxford dictionary defines it as “the belief and aim that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men; the struggle to achieve this aim”.

It is strange how the word has acquired a pejorative connotation among the majority of people.

inasmuch as calling someone/something a feminist entails their belonging to a radical feminist movement(which instead of being judged should be historically analyzed as a social phenomenon).

Such a weak generalization serves to categorize all pro gender equality as brutal,when their methods may be pacifist.
