What is Feminism

Agnes Varda directed a short French film that asked women: Qu'est-ce qu'une femme?

A feminist is someone who believes in universal equity for all women. Someone who transcends patriarchal expectations and does not conform to the laws of male dominance and who seeks to empower other women. Feminism is an invitation for all human subjects to side with women and pledge to dedicate a life-long process of learning about the female sex.

A feminist is someone who acknowledges the many feminisms that exist--they are not bound by one single one. Feminism is making choices for oneself without totally  depending on men for affirmation. What is a feminist, who is a feminist? To all the feminist who are to come: prosper!
