A feminist glossary to help you fight for equality

From USA Today
Like any "ism," feminism is rich with jargon, which can lead deeply personal conversations to turn unnecessarily dense. While some terms are entrenched, others are contemporary additions to an evolving lexicon. To help you break through, here are definitions for everything from "feminism" and "misogyny" to "bropropriated" and "feminazi."  Helping you make sense of feminist jargon so you can fight sexism and oppression - read more here @ USA Today


Note: In my day, feminists agitated for gender equality, reproductive rights, domestic violence, changes to family law.  As times changed, the whole look of feminism also drastically changed, being appropriated by others for their own ends, and at times emerging in some bastardised form, unrecognisable to those who trod the path decades ago.  Each generation must find its own way, but there is no need to be disrepectful and forgetful of who to blazed the trail before you.
