Feminism is the idea that gender should not be allowed to limit a person’s potential. Early feminism was centered around the right to vote, activism, equality in the workplace, sexuality, and other critical social issues. Today, it seems more about the attitude of American feminism, rather than its accomplishments.

For example, if a woman is submissive or sensitive, she is seen as being weak and overly emotional. On the other hand, if she is headstrong and assertive, she runs the risk of being labeled a bitch. Many criticisms of feminism from the right wing are less to do with feminism as sexist, as feminism can be seen as being progressive and anti-capitalist

Feminism used to mean something good but this word started to become associated with bad things at the present day. Feminism used to represent women trying to find their own path in this world. Women are allowed to do what they want in order to reach their goals. Modern-day feminism is different from that. This is probably because the goal of feminism has already been achieved. There are a lot of women now who are allowed to become their own bosses. Feminism right now focuses on oppression.

Women use their sex in order to get the best deals out of the situation even if they do not deserve it. When they feel that they are being slighted, they use the victim card because they are women. This is the reason why feminism is not considered true anymore.
