The feminist movement was something that occurred really throughout the 20th century. Starting in 1920 when wen gained the right to vote and again in the 1980's when women really started to break away from their traditional roles in western society.

These days feminism is being rejected by many young women. This is because these days young girls feel they have just as much opportunity to make a living as men.

Now days the connotation of feminism has changed from the original denotation of the word. Now feminism has a new common meaning "believing women deserve special treatment" while this is NOT the actual dictionary definition of the word, it is what most people mean when they talk about feminism these days.

Consequently, many young women feel the need for change has past and with it the need to identify as a feminist.

The young women who still identify with feminism are on the more "radical" side of the scale and feel women are still not equal and want even more benefits given on top if the affirmative action already provided for being a women in western society (more scholarship opportunities, more access to government assisted living, and government subsidies for owning their own business). These are the radical women who have given feminism a bad name.
Example of the new connotation of a feminism:

"Goddamn did you hear that bitch talking about how employers should have to pay for their female employees' birth control and pregnancy tests?!"

"Yea man! That chick's gotta be a feminist."

The fetishization of species-wide female incompetence through reinforcement of in-group preference among females, and out-group preference among males.
Feminism is the most obvious antonym of Egalitarianism, in terms of etymology.

Feminism was about equality.Now (Modern Feminism) is about retarded women with no brain and no logic, bitching about everything men do and acting always like they are a victim.If you see a modern feminist you should shoot her/him immediately and make the world a better place.
Feminism is no more about equality.It is about retarded uneducated whores

The belief that women are more than men and that men should have absolutely no rights, along with a lot of other irrational and hateful "arguements". As oppose to meninism, feminism is widely accepted and man-hate is perfectly fine in todays society, all under the mask of an "equal rights" movement.
Feminist 1: Feminism is about equal rights!
Feminist 2: But we also want equal rights!

A left-wing movement in Western culture originating in the 1960's that seeks socio-economic equality between men and women.

Proponents of the movements cite years of hardship by women when they could not access the same basic privileges as men (e.g. such as the right to vote). They argue that even though throughout history most human societies have been patriarchal, rapid advances in the past hundred years have made it necessary to rethink the status of women in relation to men. They cite that the extremes of living in a patriarchal society such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and discrimination against women as their primary reasons for supporting feminism.

Opponents of the movement argue that feminism has gone too far and has accomplished most of its original goals. They argue that if it proceeds any further, there is a real danger that feminism will go on to elevate the status of women and result in a generation of emasculated men. They add that feminism has hurt gender roles and made the typical family structure unstable and caused an increase in divorces, breakups, abortions, etc.. With a surplus of women working, they argue that this has resulted in them them being away from their spouse and children and them spending less time at home.
The symbolic poster of feminism reads:

We Can Do It! *showing off bulging bicep*
