Societies around the world have subjected women to various atrocities at different points in time. There are many forms of patriarchy which still exist in many parts of the world. Such forms portray an ideology where men are inevitably considered superior to women and therefore have sway over woman’s rights. This ideology is not confined to some parts of the world and could be found in many societies around the world. It is because of these social structures and morals that women around the world are struggling for their rights. These rights are the same rights which often men take for granted. This struggle for woman’s rights gave rise to feminism. Feminism actually is a philosophy which deals with women and where their valuable contributions are recognized. Feminism as such has given a boost in the struggle for woman’s rights.
Moreover when you say feminists it need not necessarily mean women alone. It could also be anyone from boys to girls and even men in the society in general. What it means is people who value contributions from women.
Feminism has come as a shot in the arm in the struggle for woman's rights. These feminists are continuing their fight for a world, where everyone, both men and women are considered equals. They are fighting for a world where there is no discrimination based on gender, age and other related factors. The main motivation for the struggle of feminists comes from their view of the world as being unequal or being biased towards the rights of men when compared to that of woman's rights.
One can find a host of information on the topic of woman’s right through a simple online search. From various different topics such as cultural feminism to radical feminism, you can search the internet for valuable information on the various happenings in the field. The current trend seems to be towards a more liberal feminism. Advocates of this theory focus on the idea that every human being is created equal and that the only way to change the ways in which people are discriminated is through education alone.
All said and done the fight for woman’s right which has been going on for a long time now has yielded results. Women have made progress in all fields. You can find women rubbing shoulders and even outshining their male counterparts in almost every arena, whether it is science and technology or sports or even politics. In politics women have made a very big impact and have been instrumental in the changing of existing draconian laws in several countries. Women in a vast majority of countries today have full freedom, apart from having their own representatives as a voice in the government.
