Feminism: Definitions and Opinions

Righty. This is the last chance to discuss the issue of feminism on CoS. If this thread rapidly descends into the squabblefest of mass bickering and rule-ignoring of the previous version, it will vanish into the ether, never to be replaced.

Some questions to get you started:

1. How would you define feminism?
2. Do you define yourself as a feminist? If so, why? If not, why not?
3. What positive things (if any) do you think the feminist movement has achieved?
4. What (if anything) do you think the feminist movement should be working to achieve now? What methods do you think should be used to achieve those goals?
5. What negative effects (if any) do you think the feminist movement has had?
6. Have you had any negative experiences of feminists in RL?
7. Do you feel there are any common misconceptions about feminism and what would you say to someone who holds these misconceptions?

A reminder of the rules and of the fact that, this being a Hot Zone, if you break them, there will be no inthread or warning, you will be banned from the DoIMC for the time period specified below:

All posters are also asked to keep in mind the fact that the cultural landscape varies a lot around the world. What looks like an unbelievable fairy tale to one member may be an adequate description of the reality another member lives in. So, please, do not show disrespect for your fellow posters' descriptions of their experiences.
