Why are there so many branches of feminism? If equality (female empowerment) is their main theme, why is one overarching discipline insufficient? Otherwise, what are the other themes each branch deal with?
tynamite's avatar Some feminists want equal rights, which are the majority of feminists in the Middle East, where women are not allowed to drive [link], be seen as equal in the eyes of the law [link], go outside without a man present [link] or be allowed to have sex out of wedlock [link]

Some feminists want to fight the patriarchy, and call for greater representation of women in positions of power such as in parliament or business executives [link]

Some feminists want to change the way they are treated by men in society by making sure they are treat as equals and thought of as equals. [one] [two] [three]

Some feminists want to put an end to sexual harassment which impacts many women on a daily basis. [one] [two] [three] [four] [five] [six]

Some feminists want to be liberated enough to be promiscuous without fear of being called a slut and not be told that their attire is to blame for being raped. [link]

Some feminists want to end objectification, and put an end to lads mags, lap dancing clubs, sexually suggestive music videos, beauty pageants and prostituion. [one] [two]

Given that women already have equal rights and there's no coherent evidence of women being discriminated against in such a way that it prevents them of being notable from a Wikipedia article like men are, each woman's experience of the world is different and subjective, so it's only natural that each women will want different things.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
