1. General definition The advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. (Google)

You can claim to be a feminist, but there are also different types/factions of feminist. Usually majority of feminist ask what faction are you. The two most practiced and well known factions are intersectional and radical feminism.

2. "Radical feminism is a perspective within feminism that calls for a radical reordering of society in which male supremacy is eliminated in all social and economic contexts. Radical feminists seek to abolish patriarchy by challenging existing social norms and institutions, rather than through a purely political process." -wiki

3. The view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees of intensity (intersectional feminism).
1. "feminism allowed women to vote in the 1920's!!!" (Which is actually the white washed version, ALL women were allowed to veto around the 1960s, not just white women.

2. "Smash the patriarchy!!" (Yes, radical feminist usually say this, but the majority of all feminist believe the patriarchy exist)

3. The only true feminist, is a feminist that includes ALL women. Woc, disabled women, lgbt+ women, young women, old women, poor women, rich women,.... There's so many different types of women!! And if your feminism isn't inclusive to all of them, then who is it for?? If your feminism isn't intersectional, then I am against it(not all intersectional are against feminism that Isn't intersectional).

Basically if you're having trouble understanding all these other definitions with all these words.

Feminist is basically thinking that females should have the same right as guys. That's literally it.
"I support feminism."
"So.. you think that girls should have the same pay check equality, same rights, and ish like that? As guys do?"
"Exactly."

A left-wing movement in Western culture originating in the 1960's that seeks socio-economic equality between men and women.

Proponents of the movements cite years of hardship by women when they could not access the same basic privileges as men (e.g. such as the right to vote). They argue that even though throughout history most human societies have been patriarchal, rapid advances in the past hundred years have made it necessary to rethink the status of women in relation to men. They cite that the extremes of living in a patriarchal society such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and discrimination against women as their primary reasons for supporting feminism.

Opponents of the movement argue that feminism has gone too far and has accomplished most of its original goals. They argue that if it proceeds any further, there is a real danger that feminism will go on to elevate the status of women and result in a generation of emasculated men. They add that feminism has hurt gender roles and made the typical family structure unstable and caused an increase in divorces, breakups, abortions, etc.. With a surplus of women working, they argue that this has resulted in them them being away from their spouse and children and them spending less time at home.
The symbolic poster of feminism reads:

We Can Do It! *showing off bulging bicep*

people who are seeking /equal rights/ regardless of gender and sex, commonly mistaken for a 'women are better' ideal by those who are lesser educated about feminism.
Man 1: I'd happily punch a feminist in the face because they believe in feminism.

Man 2: I'm a feminist.
