Equality is something that is important to all women and always has been. Women began standing up and speaking out against inequality when they had little to no rights, and have continued to do so to get to where equality is today. This all started with the women’s rights movement that formed during the reform period. But, how effective was this movement? Well, it brought women together through views and opinions to configure the women’s rights movement.
, Misandry, Sexism and Patriarchy The word ‘feminist ‘ to me means a person, not generally a woman, who fights for women and their rights, it means that a person wants equality for men and women so that the world can be in balance. Feminism started out as a movement which helped women gain rights. It was a social, political movement and it helped women gain the right to work, then it helped lessen the pay gap at work, it helped women get maternity leave from work. Feminism helped women gain rights to work as judges, it inspired popular figures to speak about it, it helped women fight against the crimes and abuse etc. It was empowering and liberating when it made women realize that only they could control their lives, what they chose to work
Moreover, Intersectional feminism opens the door for oppressed women who are different from the overly white, middle class, cis-gendered and able-bodied women who claim to “want power for all women”, but will not advocate and let her privilege be called out by a woman of a different race. Another key point is that though people of white decent cannot be oppressed in the ways that a person of color can be, they can use their privilege to bring light upon the people who need help.

Feminism Is Equality Feminism is a strong belief that states both men and women should be equal. Women should have the same rights, the same amount of respect, and the same contribution and acceptance in our society. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Inequality between men and women is still just as relevant today, as it was decades ago. Today, the feminist movement is expanding and empowering women through liberation.
Women were thought of as intellects. Women started developing new intellects than they did before. Women should almost always fight for their rights, and should not be afraid of anything because they are no less than men in education and a lot of other things. They should have formal education just like how men have always had it. The Enlightenment brought many changes with it; change in how women started thinking is a good example for that.
The fight for the rights of women has continued since then and still continues in modern feminist movements. Although it may seem like a constant battle to some, none of these activists would have been able to do this without Wollstonecraft and her writings in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.

Women’s rights are human rights and Wollstonecraft made it her life’s work to get this message across. Wollstonecraft created a base for the women’s rights movement and got women thinking for themselves about what needed to change.

John Stuart Mill and Harried Taylor later in 19th century wrote about the evolving need of women’s involvement in the society. Later followed by the formation of the Groups like the National Women 's Political Caucus, National Organization for Women, etc.
