Are you a feminist or know anyone who supports feminism? Do you think feminism should be supported or discouraged?

You will hear different opinions from different people on how equal we have been created and also how unequal we have been created. With the situation in different societies and groups, feminism has become a topic that is creating battles(just exaggerating). Do you believe feminism should be encouraged or discourage? Let us know in the comment section.

Feminism and the equal rights for women is one of the biggest political forces of the modern day. But not everyone agrees.

According to Wikipedia, Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to those for men. Also Dictionary.com defined it as an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women.

With this, some people fight over the fact that man and woman can’t equal and most examples starts from the household matters. If a man pays the bills and the woman takes care of the house, do you count that has equality? If women equalise themselves with the men by taking the responsibility equally, can the movement be maintained? Can equality in this scenario be termed as equal?

We seek to find out from the people on the street of Lagos, Nigeria, so they can share with us what they think of the matter – is feminism a good or bad thing. Follow our journey and watch what we discovered.

    AMERICAN MEN should LEAVE THESE HORRIBLE LIBERAL FEMINAZIS and get YOUNGER, FRESH FOREIGN SKOOCH – where the females are taught to be “GOOD WIVES, GOOD MOTHERS” and DIVORCE IS TABOO.

    Don’t waste time on these horrible skanks.

    Just because people are different it doesn’t mean you should discriminate between them. White people and black people are also “different”, but they should be treated as equals. Treating them differently on the basis of their skin color is discrimination. These “differences” in behavior or thinking that people attribute to one’s race or gender are often times ideas, stereotypes or the result of socialization.

    The objective of feminism is equality of the sexes. Feminism is also supposed to help men (perhaps in custody battles or prison sentences for example). When the sexes are unequal, or forced to perform within their assigned “roles”, it holds us back. With traditional gender roles for example, your value is determined by stringent rules: the male is the breadwinner, the woman is the homemaker. What happens the male can’t provide – suddenly he loses respect, esteem, is useless etc. What happens when the female can’t cook, clean, can’t have (or doesn’t want) children – she is seen as lazy, useless, selfish etc. And you see the pressure that it has on people, trying to live up to these rules. It’s better to derive value from people as human beings, before being male or female. If a male is a homemaker, he is useful. If a female is a breadwinner, she is useful. And vice versa. The problem is when we limit people to gender roles, they suddenly become useless when they don’t live up to them.

    One man said that he would need a male child because it’s better for his son to gain his inheritance than his son in law. But this too, could be circumvented if the value was derived from being the man’s child fullstop. Not being the man’s son. This leads to pressure to have a boy child, and we have seen examples how that ends up for girl children; or perhaps they blame the mother. What good does that do? I know this is culture and tradition he is talking about though, so there will be no further explanation than just that, “culture”.

    Only the men in the full collared white shirts were the smart ones. They correctly pointed out that there should be no difference in treatment of men and women. The other men hid behind ridiculous stories of religion, god, fake differences, etc. Nigeria is a nice place but the enormous influence of religion is going to continue causing damage. It isn’t about the word “feminism” which has different meanings for different peoples and situations. It’s about appreciating basic scientific ideas of life.
