What is feminism? To elaborate on this question, to sum up in one sentence we would like to say that it exists to promote and protect the rights of all kinds of women and girls. This is the vision to achieve gender equality for all and works towards this goal through planned partnerships. It includes sports construction in the Asia-Pacific region; and research, policy, and publicity all over the world.
It is not the only international development organization defending women’s rights. However, they are the only ones who do it from a feminist perspective.
Feminism means everything is for everyone equally. They are not responsible for defining feminism in any other exact terms, but they want to clarify some basic knowledge about feminism.
Feminism is all about respecting the experiences, identities, knowledge and advantages of various women, and striving to empower all women to realize all their rights.
This is to balance the competitive environment between men and women and ensure that diverse men and women have equal life opportunities.
Inclusiveness is a central part of our feminism. You may have heard the phrase “communicative” or “communicative feminism” appearing more and more. Intersection is taking place in public affairs about feminism but this not a new phenomenon.
Did you ever hear the term “intersectional feminism”? Maybe you feel it a complicated but if we see the other side and read deeply about it. Then, we come to know that it is the only term that intersects between gender and other discrimination like race, age, class, socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability, gender or sexual identity, religion, or race interaction.

There are many different uses of the term “feminism”. For example, some writers used the word “feminism” to describe some specific political activities in the history of the United States and Europe. Some of them use this term to viewpoint about women’s injustices. The term “feminism” in English related to women’s activism from the late 19th century and still, it distinguishes feminist ideas or beliefs from feminist political movements even in periods when there is no significant political activism it is also very useful.

There is one more term used in feminism is sexism discrimination is related to beliefs surrounding the basic nature of men and women and their roles in society. The hypothesis of sexism discrimination against men and women is manifested in gender stereotypes, which can rank one gender above another. Gender discrimination can reach everyone, but women are particularly vulnerable.

The experiences and opinions of women and girls have not been excluded from social theory. And social science for many years in history, many feminist theories have focused on their interactions and experiences in society to ensure Half of the world’s population will not be excluded by us. Take a look and understand social forces, relationships, and problems.
Part of what makes feminist theory creative and inclusive is that it often takes into account how power and oppressive systems interact, that is, it not only focuses on gender power and oppression, but also focuses on the relationship between system racism and hierarchy how to intersect system, gender, nationality and (disabled) ability, etc.

Beginning in the mid-1990s and early 2010s, organized actions by women and women’s representatives continued until the third and fourth waves of feminism.
Famous women in history
The history of famous women in the world is not just the sum of its outstanding figures. These women enjoy a strong position in the collective consciousness of society and known as female role models in history.
But like other historical subsets, “Women’s History” is not just about the intermittent elections of monarchS. The suffrage movement, occasional outstanding writers, pioneering aviatrix, devout religious figures, feminist angry forms, and other headlines.
These women who changed the world and others like them not only won but also performed well when personal, economic, political, and racial barriers were threatened.

However, apart from the occasional matrilineal monarch or Taoist or missing beasts, the history of women is usually the secondary history of drinking tea when signing documents, caring for men injured in battle, and winning the male election. But in the tea drinking and the rearing of the wounded, hidden in the shadows under the spotlight, we are just the easiest story to involve in the story of men and women.
Although we can concur that certain documents, battles and elections will change the course of history no doubt, but we pedestrians are the stars of these major events. We are actors, with thousands of footnotes, not headlines, and the purpose is to mix metaphors.
In this sense, the history of most women, both men and women, is closer to us than any other history. Let’s face it, it’s as amazing as we humans think, the truth is that it is easier for us to drink tea than to sign a treaty. The history of women who changed the world, like other historical subsets (ethnic history, art history, social history, cultural history, archaeology, etc.), mainly involves 99.9% of things that happen outside of treaties, wars, and elections. By studying these subsets, we benefit from a richer perspective that is generally considered conventional history.
