'''Feminism''' refers to a category of political ideologies and movements based around promotion of social and political equality of [[Human]] females in society. Pre-industrial [[civilization]] had considerable levels of institutionalized [[Sexism]] and was male dominated. Emerging from egalitarian ideals that came out of the Age of Enlightenment, Feminism began in the 19th century CE and scored major victories in the 20th century. Feminism has largely been successful in the developed world, enfranchising the female section of the citizenry of said nations, opening up career options and instilling a greater degree of prominence and respect for women. That said, some residual sexism remains especially in the less developed sections of the world and there are movements who seek to undo said progress.
