I feel it's in the way a woman represents herself and is a great form of support for others. Carrying herself with poise and elegance. I believe it's a way of mind that is non judgmental yet not naive. I think of good manors and polite etiquette. I also think of it as taking good care of your appearance and health. Femininity is not the same as feminism. I strive for femininity.

This is a difficult question that has stumped better minds than the peanut gallery at G@G.
It's OBVIOUS that femininity isn't feminism. One is a descriptor of behavior and mannerisms, the other is a bigoted hate movement and multi-billion-dollar-per-year political empire that spans the world.
But to answer your question, I do believe that femininity is a descriptor of certain kinds of styles of behavior and mannerisms. What exactly that entails could differ from person to person.
Personally, for me, I think it can be partially described as using only the force needed in your motion to accomplish your task (you don't ham-fist everything you touch), as well as dexterous grace, and a gait that attracts straight men.
I do think femininity can go to far, at which point it becomes abusive to the people around you. At this point, it can be described as characterized by uselessness. "Hypoagency," or being so helpless others must do things for you. Think "surrendered wife."1
