In “What About Men,” Donald Woodman makes an excellent point with using the word “femanism.” Feminism is a commonly misconstrued term. More often than not, it is considered a term to use about men hating, radical women. In reality, it is a term that means ending sexism. To end sexism, a united front of women AND men is needed. Women alone cannot do this because men sit in the positions of power to do this. By adding men to this fight to end the oppression, the results will be more successful. There needs to be more awareness among men about the need to recognize and eliminate sexism. Without adding men to our fight, how can we begin to end sexism when the majority of humans do not even recognize that it exists?
