Feminism is about equality??

I would hope that that’s all anyone wants, equality. To be treated no better or no worse than anyone else. If you’re hiring for a job, then the most qualified person should get that job regardless of sex / gender, colour, race, sexuality etc. As an employer, you maybe should take an interest in the life of your employees, but at the end of the day you just or should just want what’s best for your business, but I’m getting sidetracked.

The Prime Directive

Most people in the United States think of feminism or the most commonly used term “women’s lib” as a movement that aims to make women the social equals of men. This broad definition, popularized by the media and mainstream segments of the movement, raises problematic questions. Since men are not equals in white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal class structure, which men do women want to be equal to? Do women share a common vision of what equality means? Implicit in this simplistic definition of women’s liberation is a dismissal of race and class as factors that, in conjunction with sexism, determine the extent to which an individual will be discriminated against, exploited, or oppressed.
