Q: Isn’t feminism over? Wasn’t it some kind of 70s thing?

A: Feminism predates ancient Greece. In this country the first wave began in the 19th century. We’ll be “done” as soon as the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes is no longer a theory...

Q: Why not “humanism” or “egalitarianism”?

A: Because those other words are about how everyone is equal – they do not actively advocate for gender equality. Feminism unabashedly states that the gender being denied personhood and subjected to oppression is female. 

Q: So do you hate men?

A: No!
