  • Misandry Is Not Feminism

    but an act worthy of a misandrist. Most people wouldn 't necessarily understand the difference. In fact, most of the general population would claim they haven 't even heard of the term misandry.

    Misandry. Women-empowering. Extremism. These are the words that I usually hear when I asked people around me about feminism. Some people believe that feminism is just for the past. They claim that there is no longer inequality exists between men and women in this society; thus there is not necessary to study about feminism.
