There are a lot of different issues in feminism -- and I don't know that

I offer the following as the definition of a feminist:

families deserve respect for the job they are doing? Then you are a

You're a feminist if you favor equal opportunities, equal
responsibilities, and equal treatment for men and women. You are a
feminist if you think promotions in business should be based on
talent and not on gender.

Feminism is not a new phenomenon. It is as old as the human desire
to be treated fairly and judged equally. But it is an idea whose
time has come.
