                                                          Other concepts






Pro-feminism



Pro-feminism is the support of feminism without implying that the supporter is a member of the feminist movement. The term is most often used in reference to men who are actively supportive of feminism and of efforts to bring about gender equality.

The activities of pro-feminist men's groups include anti-violence work with boys and young men in schools, offering sexual harassment workshops in workplaces, running community education campaigns, and counseling male perpetrators of violence.

Pro-feminist men also are involved in men's health, activism against pornography including anti-pornography legislation, men's studies, and the development of gender equity curricula in schools.

This work is sometimes in collaboration with feminists and women's services, such as domestic violence and **** crisis centers.

Some activists of both genders will not refer to men as "feminists" at all, and will refer to all pro-feminist men as "pro-feminists".





Anti-feminism



Antifeminism is opposition to feminism in some or all of its forms.

Feminists such as Camille Paglia, Christina Hoff Sommers, Jean Bethke Elshtain and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese have been labeled "anti-feminists" by other feminists.

Daphne Patai and Noretta Koertge argue that in this way the term "anti-feminist" is used to silence academic debate about feminism.

Paul Nathanson and Katherine K. Young's books 'Spreading Misandry' and 'Legalizing Misandry' explore what they argue is feminist-inspired misandry.

Christina Hoff-Sommers argues feminist misandry leads directly to misogyny by what shecalls
"establishment feminists" against (the majority of) women who love men in
'Who Stole Feminism: How Women Have Betrayed Women.'

"Marriage rights" advocates criticize feminists like Sheila Cronan who take the view that marriage constitutes slavery for women, and that freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.
