Feminism’s Bad Rep?


I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.”  Rebecca West

I have a question for anyone reading: why does feminism have such a negative reputation, especially in Islamic cirlces?

When someone says “feminism”, what do you think? What is your gut reaction?

When someone says they are a feminist, what do you then think of them?

Do you think it is possible to be a feminist and be Muslim?

I have lots of opinions on this but I really want to hear what other people think, because I find it interesting that “feminism” has become such a negative thing these days, and I really want to understand why.
