feminist perspective page

What feminism is NOT:

Feminism is not "hating men" or "wanting to get rid of men"
There is another word for that, "misandry".
Do not confuse them.
Thank you.

(Yes, I know we know that, but you'd be surprised how many people think that is exactly what it is...)

To me, feminism is about questioning gender roles. Why do we suppose that men ought to behave in one way and women in another?

Here are some links to various places on this site where the feminist theme became more explicit than elsewhere, not that my whole site is not feminist.
