What is Feminism?

Did you guys see what Divergent star and soon-to-be the Fault in Our Stars star Shailene Woodley said about feminism?

Oy vey.

"I don't consider myself a feminist because I love men, and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance."

Although Shailene has excellent taste in movies, she has no idea what she's talking about.

From Wikipedia: Feminism is a collection of movements and ideologies aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women.[1][2] This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment. A feminist advocates or supports the rights and equality of women.[3]

Feminism isn't about dragging men down. It's about bringing women up, to, um, reach a state of equality. All I can do is sit here and shake my head and hope young ladies do not use Ms. Woodley as their source for information about women's rights...or fashion.
