Has feminism turned into ruthless, man-hating creatures?

#genderequality also known as sexual equality or equality of the sexes, is the state of equal ease of access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender, including economic participation and decision-making; and the state of valuing different behaviors, aspirations and needs equally, regardless of gender. Gender equality is an important topic that is in need of attention. Many countries have made laws to fight for gender equality but more needs to be done. UNICEF says gender equality "means that women and men, and girls and boys, enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protections.” It does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be the same, or that they be treated exactly alike.

The term "strong woman" has been thrown around a lot. With the rise of feminism and the increased demand for gender equality, more women are being considered "strong". However, there is a misconception about what this really means. Women are often told that they have to compete with men in order to be regarded as strong.

Some people might think that this means that women should be more assertive and show no emotion, but that's not what it really means.

#feminism is in my opinion a word that has been distorted and warped by the patriarchy. Feminism is aimed at destroying the patriarchal ideas that are cemented in our society. If you are a man who supports equality for all people, doesn’t support patriarchal views on sexual abuse, treats women as people and not objects, doesn’t have a stereotypical view of women as emotional or unfit to be in charge then you are a feminist.

Different people have different opinions about feminism. This makes it a hot topic. Some people don't believe in the movement and think that it has gone too far. They say that feminism has turned women into ruthless, man-hating creatures. On the other hand, some people think that feminism is a good thing because it helps women get their voice heard and supports female empowerment.

But what do you think?
