  • Feminism Pros And Cons

    Over time, the word feminism has slowly gained multiple misconceptions and negative connotations. Some believe that feminism is anti-male, anti-"stay at home mom", pro-abortion, and so many other misconstrued beliefs. However, as defined in the Webster Dictionary, the word feminism is "the theory of political, economical, and social equality of the sexes."

  • Pros And Cons Of Feminism

    Feminism, Its Misconceptions, and Its Relevance Modern feminism, also termed third-wave feminism, is a much-required societal component.

The author has their…
