According to Kniesler, [t]here is no one ideal woman, just as there is no ideal feminist…Hermione is a feminist role model because she grasps the foundations of feminism – sexual equality – and remains true to herself, overcoming the pressure of society and tradition.
Power feminists really encourage women to step up and take responsibility for their own lives and to stop feeling like victims while other groups feel like they really are victims and choose to fight for their rights in different ways. It is safe to say that maybe these various groups will never fully agree on everything, but perhaps by cooperating even a little bit they can accomplish the goals they both share.

True feminism sought for women to have freedom and rights, such as the right to vote, the right to gain an education, and the right to equal wages. In most aspects, we have been given these rights, but radical feminists are not content. There has been a jump from “We are equal to men,” to “women are superior.” Women have been fighting stereotypes for ages, proclaiming how horrid they are, yet quickly turn around and stereotype men and see no issue with this hypocrisy. The way for women to reach the equality they seek is to bring others up as well as themselves, not to tear them down. When feminists realize and act upon this, they will begin to see the results they have been hoping
Feminism is important because it fights for social, political, and economic equality by giving strength to women and encouraging independence and acceptance. It is also important to be aware that true feminists do not hate men, typical feminine lifestyles, or people who want to follow traditional family structures. Everyone needs to know what feminism really means. So much hate is thrown at feminists because of misconceptions about what true feminism is working towards. Once society understands what feminism is truly about, only then can it work at it’s best to fight for equality for

My definition includes women who are not afraid of their own power, and are not afraid of the power of the patriarchal society, and stands up for what they believe in throughout every aspect of their life. There are also male feminists who recognize some of the wrongs that have been done to women, and support the movement to change them. A feminist can be the militant, angry female who thinks that men are against her or the soft-spoken pro-choice woman who believes in her right to choose her own health care. I believe that feminists come in all shapes and sizes, and may not be able to fit into the label that encompasses them. In my experiment, people's view of feminism came in two varieties.

Hook has a valid point when she says that we all have a common enemy, sexism, and by all having that common enemy the fight against it may possibly be won. In my other articles I saw that Hook and Valenti are correct, the battle against the stereotypical feminist still exist, whether it is what they are doing to hurt society or how it may in fact be long gone.
Feminist art is, in general, the fight for female equality expressed in an art form. The reason I feel that this is a complex issue is because, just as a feminist, feminist art should “do” what ever it wants. It would be great to have feminist art, or any art, promote conversation about gender, equality, and the societal constraints dealing with gender inequality, but I think that what
It was fighting for equality for women, right? I would later find out that this is an immature concept of feminism, it was not fully developed. Gender equality was a part of it, an important part, however it was so so much more than that.
