Gender resistance feminist- they resist against oppression and suppression of the females in the society by adopting a militant or civil disobedience strategy.
Gender revolution- sacrifice by changing the course of narratives of the ordeals of females
Adaptations of goals, strategy, policy framework and affiliations varies with Faith, ideology, region, race, dogma and culture
Proponents of feminism have equally highlighted some benefits or advantages of the movement thus to include;
Feminism brings out the best of humanity as we evaluate people by their character, substance, competence, productivity, efficiency and not because of their genders
Feminism bring out the best of a woman because they ( feminist) work against oppression, suppression and outright discrimination on the basis of gender
Giving out equal rights to women enhances economic growth as they constitute half of the population of any giving society, and in many cases more than half.
As they’ll be engage in politics, governance, development, education, farming, industrialisation, there by curbing unemployment, crime and many other social vices in the society
Cultural feminism is the ideology of a “female nature” or “female essence” that attempts to revalidate what they consider undervalued female attributes. It emphasizes the difference between women and men but considers that difference to be psychological, and to be culturally constructed rather than biologically innate
Liberal feminism asserts the equality of men and women through political and legal reform. Traditionally, during the 19th and early 20th century, liberal feminism had the same meaning as “bourgeois feminism” or “mainstream feminism,” and its broadest sense, the term liberal feminism overlaps strongly with mainstream feminism. Liberal feminists sought to abolish political, legal and other forms of discrimination against women to allow them the same opportunities as men since their autonomy has deficits. Discriminations of gender, either in the workplace or in the home, and the patriarchal mentality in inherited traditions constitutes some cause for the liberals women’s movement. Liberal feminists sought to alter the structure of society to ensure the equal treatment of women. The first and the second feminist waves were led by liberal feminists and they managed to formally and legally obtain many of equal right for women, including the right to vote, right to be educated, as well as the eliminatinon of many other patriarchal paternalistic and moralistic laws.

Am a man and I support liberal feminism
The mere idea of feminism is being misconstrued as the idea of hating men, by unsecured men and overzealous women. It’s become a widely spread belief that feminism represents the idea of switching the power structure so that men are on the bottom and women are on the top; however, this is a common drift away from the fundamentals of feminism and the dangerous trend is tilting towards misandry which is harmful and dangerous to humanity same as its twin; misogyny.
But critics, antagonist and opponents of this movement have also reel out some effect, disadvantages or consequences of feminism is the inability of the campaigners of feminism to distinctively distinguish between feminism and misandry
What is misandry or who is a misandrist ?? Misandry is a form of dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men.
In simple words, unnecessary hatred against men
Those championing equality of rights don’t seems to or deliberately refuse to champion equality in responsibility
They no longer buttress their activism through dogged campaigns and champion q good course on the reason why women should be integral part of the society without prejudice, but they embark on militant approach and identity fault lines with anyone or group who hold contrary views base on logic and not necessarily on culture, dogma or religious affiliations
A clear example is they demand for equality without demanding for responsibility.
Utility bills such as house rent, water, electricity, gasoline, PMS, food, health bills etc are responsibilities of man.
They should also demand for equality on the aforementioned task where by they’ll pay equally as the man
