    The problem with this is that you'll practically get a different definition of 'feminist' from each person you ask, from misandrous womyn to Andrea Dworkin and the 'all-sex-is-rape' crowd to Womens Sufferage to bra-burning and possibly even to Sheila's Wheels - all of which fit under the description, more or less, and none of which are the whole story.

    Feminism (my definition would be 'the movement behind the idea that people should not be treated differently because of their sex or gender') changed things. I'd say for the better.

    It got Patsy Schroeder elected.

    Babs Boxer is a Senatorette.

    So's Frankenstein.

    Hillary was able to swindle people through the Rose Law Firm.

    It de-stigmatized divorce, so that the majority of children now come from broken homes.

    It created the myth that it's just wonderful to be a single mom. (Murphy Brown nonsense).

    Funny, though. Because the ERA would have forced the draft to include females, the ERA died.

    Now feminism has made Mrs. Ed a nominee for the Supreme Court.

    Feminism has created great comic theater, bad cultural evolution.

    Women and men aren't equal.

    People should start to realize that. I never will be able to pass a bowling ball out between my legs, and have no desire to.

    Because it's given choice to those people who did not have it before. It's largely due to feminism that things like [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spousal_rape]spousal rape[/ame] have been made illegal, it's largely due to feminism that women have the right to vote, it's largely due to feminism that men and women receive comparable pay for doing identical jobs. I'm also a fan of breaking down stereotypes - that's a longer story, but the short of it is that by removing preconceptions you better enable people to achieve their potential.

    It's true that 'feminism', as a term, has been used and twisted just like any other concept, be it Christianity, conservatism or evolution. People have done some stupid things under that banner - but that's not different from any other banner, and the original idea behind it is a good one.

    EDIT: Curses, I voted wrong.

    It's not the government's job to balance paydays between employees of the same company.

    Nowhere in the Constitution is the government authorized for that intrusion. Just one of the many wrongs feminism has wrought.
