Feminism is the advocacy of women's rights based on the social equality of both sexes or if you're really strict with Webster;
the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
but also
organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interest

Whilst Egalitarianism is a philosophy that favours equality for both people or;
a belief in human equality especially with respect to social, political, and economic affairs
a social philosophy advocating the removal of inequalities among people

Ready, Set, Goooo.

    No, Egalitarianism doesn't.

    its like comparing a nationalist and white nationalist, they are different but very very simialar.
  • Feminism is a defined movement (one I am not a part of, keep in mind). They haven't done much for gender equality, but egalitarianism certainly hasn't either.

    When arguing this, let's try to distinguish the philosophy from the action. The philosophy behind egalitarianism seems to be more in favor of whole gender equality than the philosophy of modern feminism; however, has egalitarianism really done anything noteworthy in the name of its cause?

    Egalitarianism, as far as I can tell, was created only as a counter-label for feminism, and does not have any degree of depth as a movement.

    I think this is an interesting discussion though, are there any egalitarians here who can refute that?
