Is Feminism Really Necessary ?

I get rather sick of seeing articles about feminism. Why ?
Well, is there really any need for it ? What is the point of it ? If a woman says she is a feminist, what exactly does that mean ?
Google Feminism …. and what do we find ?

Feminism is a collection of movements and ideologies that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve equal political, economic, cultural, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment.

I believe there are equal rights for woman these days. It is now 2015, not 1915.  Look at families. In many, both the Man and Woman work daily. Yes, a parent may stay at home until their children are at school. I’m currently at home myself. I don’t see a problem with that. I believe that’s a better idea than placing your children in daycare from practically the day they are born. Which is more important to you.. your career or your child/children ? I think it’s pretty sad if your career comes first.
We need to remember, Men are unable to give birth to children, that’s just the way it is. It’s through no fault of their own.

Here in New Zealand there is currently more Woman finishing tertiary education than Men. Full credit to them for that. There is discussion over whether woman are considered for major employment, such as CEO positions (chief executive office,managing director). Also if they receive the same salaries as men. Of course they should !!
Take a look at certain countries such as New Zealand, Australia & The United Kingdom. They have all had Female Leaders in the past. Will Hillary Clinton be the next U.S President ?

Been a Stay At Home Dad myself, I don’t really care what people think of me been at home. Some may think it’s a bit funny. But, what is the difference between Dad been at home, or Mum/Mom been at home….. NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL. I think in 20-30 years time, it will be a 50/50 split between Men and Woman at home, although the number of parents at home will continue to slowly decrease.

It’s up to any Woman or any Man to achieve what they want to achieve. If one works hard with determination, anything is possible.
