Absolutely not. Look at the lengths women had to go to just to VOTE (in the US anyway), for goodness sake. Nobody would have given them that without a fight and that was less than a hundred years ago. Without a vote we had no say in laws pertaining to our own bodies... and we're still fighting today for bodily autonomy, but I think we're winning despite the last desperate attempts by those duped into thinking they're saving babies' souls.
How far back do you want to go? I would argue that Queen Elizabeth I was probably the first 'modern' feminist.
women liberation started in the 1920's with women s right to vote
Difficult to answer, modern socialism granted much of this anyway. It has cemented more gender roles however as it is now seen differently for a woman to stay at home and care for her children. I would like to say, in some areas, has feminism gone too far?
I say if someone wants to do something let them do it, within reason of course the combat is okay with me. What I mean is and maybe you will not like it is that the average man loses quite a lot here.
It is win/loss I am afraid. Let's say you and your boyfriend get married and have children and for one reason or another things do not work. Who then gets the house? Who gets to live with the children? Statistics show the person who would get the better job if you are working parents is the man. None of this is fair.
It is messed up I am afraid, and not one person wants to deal with it.
Feminism has shut down many rights and opportunities for women that once were enjoyed. For example, a century ago there were hardly any single mothers on welfare by comparison. Very few mothers had to work a day job and the "3rd shift" too. Feminism has harmed many women and cut off opportunities that many women enjoyed.
Dozer Dan this is by far the silliest comment I've ever seen on this forum. And I've seen some doozies. Before welfare those women were malnourished and so were their children. There were hardly any single mothers because they were forced to stay with men, like it or not, otherwise face the stigma of being a divorcee.
And don't forget that now women are getting the "right" to go to war and come home in body bags, in large numbers. Quite an opportunity.
In Viet Nam there were 58,000 men killed, and 8 women. Under the new Feminist "opportunities" in the next war that will be more like 30,000 men and 30,000 women killed. Feminism has created so many good opportunities for young women. Got it.
Yes, the worst anti-family, anti-men hate law ever passed has expired. It destroyed a million families and hurt millions of men, women, and children for feminist hate. Lets hope Congress has more sense that to re-pass feminist hate.
not all women do have rights and opportunities in some countries women are still treated as property.
But that doesn't mean we haven't been effective, it just means we have more work to do.
sure but I just think people need to be aware that not all women have rights yet the story isn't over.
