Feminism anyone?

'Feminism is a diverse, competing, and often opposing collection of social theories, political movements, and moral philosophies, largely motivated by or concerning the experiences of women, especially in terms of their social, political, and economic inequalities.' Wikipedia.

Not completely unexpected bearing in mind the previous post...here is a small list of the types of Feminism that exist! Shall not allow this to become a diatribe of sorts, just possibly introduce some of you to the phenomenon, if I can call it so, of Feminism.
