ignore immature feminists.
mature ones are very few. and they are mostly dissident feminist, women who criticize feminism and/or become anti-feminist after some times.
I wasn't ever a feminist, but I supported my feminist friends in Iran. mainly because I felt they needed it. I had a very good Iranian feminist friend that we got even arrested together one time because of our Hijaab when they thought I am a native girl like her. and I saw and felt the pressure that is on women in there myself. So that time I always helped her she had blogs and different pages I even financially supported her organize meetings with 16-18 girls and she was reasonable in what she said. she was a very intelligent girl.
but then when I looked deeper I was with the Zoroastrians too and all the Zoroastrian community is persecuted in Iran regardless of their sex. and then the atheists, homosexuals, and every minority of these kind are persecuted. Artists are under pressure and the majority of them are men. and in the whole as much as women are under pressure sexually economically and politically men too are under the same pressure or under more pressure in many cases. though I supported her until the last moment I was there. but when I came out I reconsidered my opinion even about there.
observing the whole situation even in a country like that 'feminism' will not do any good but can do more damages to the society too with the sacrifices it makes. what they need is a fundamental change, is education, better economy and better life.
feminism is never a fundamental enlightenment movement for all but it is a social/political movement for women that sacrifices everything it can possibly sacrifice to gain certain ideals and rights for women. and then it doesn't stop when there is actually equality but it steps forward further to abuse that equality to win other privileges and reach other social 'ideals' they follow.
at a point feminism from a movement for basic women's rights becomes a system for directing and controlling the society.
and aside from all of these, this is what I said about somewhere in middle east. I "wrongly" felt the need for it in there under that pressure. Europe never needed feminism even 150 years ago. Because even that time our life standards was much higher than what is a middle eastern's standards of life now.
in today's world a western woman shouldn't even slightly feel the need for feminism.
