Poll of the week

Ok, the last poll i did went over very well, so here's another one...
Question; what does feminism mean to you? What do you think of when you hear the word? where do you think it's going, what the goals are, etc. Don't think too hard. Just write what pops into your head.

Feminism is the philosophy that men and women are of equal value and deserve equal treatment. No more, no less. Feminism does not necessarily mean abolition of the sex industry; it does not mean abolition of the family; and it does not mean politically correct speech codes. It simply means sex and gender equality, at least in terms of opportunity.
