3. I think that there is general consensus on the idea that
"separate but equal" is not equal, at all. If "feminism" means the total, "un-separated", equality of all women with all men, then, no you cannot seek gender equality and not be a feminist. "Feminism" is not a dirty word. It is a movement that has struggled (and still does) with thousands of years of oppression and degradation. Feminists are heroes and should be held up as such - just my opinion...
