The War on the War.
The War against the Patriarchy.
The “War on Women” and the “War for the Family” are inextricably linked.
The rise of the women’s movement and the rise of feminism in the US has been one of the most significant transformations in the history of human rights.
Yet in the eyes of the mainstream, this transformation has been largely a matter of “women’s rights”.
This has led to the “war on women” being described as the “battle for the family”.
But while the word “war” is usually reserved for the “international military coalition”, it has a different meaning in the lives of ordinary people in the UK.
The “war against the patriarchy” has been called the “feminist war” by some.
And while some women’s rights activists may think of themselves as feminists, it’s clear that this is a different definition of the term.
“The feminist movement has been about fighting for the rights of women,” says Laura Lippman, author of The War Against Women.
“But it has also been about challenging the status quo and challenging the patriarchy.
It has also used its own particular brand of feminist activism to support the rights and wellbeing of women.”
Lippman’s work has shown that many women are working towards the same aims.
She says the “woman’s movement” is about “winning the rights for women to have rights”, not “winning back” the rights.
“We need to stop trying to win back women’s entitlements and rights by just putting men in charge of them.
We need to fight for the full range of women’s needs, including rights and equality,” she says.
But the feminist movement is not limited to women.
Lippmann says that women’s issues are not only important for men, but also for men’s allies.
She cites as an example a campaign for equal pay in the workplace.
“Men are very good at seeing women’s problems as problems that they can fix,” she said.
“Women’s issues can be as complex as their men are.”
The rise in activism in the “women” and “war for the gender” categories is not unique to the UK, according to Lippmans work.
In the US, the “gender wars” have been waged against the “sexism” of the Equal Rights Amendment Act in 1973.
In the UK a similar fight for equality has been waged since the “equality” of women was enshrined in the Equality Act in 2015.
The war against the feminist war has been led by a number of groups in the United Kingdom.
The Feminist Alliance for Equality, for example, has a network of supporters across the UK and the US.
And in 2017, a women’s conference in Birmingham saw thousands of women rally in support of a campaign calling for equal rights.
These movements have been largely ignored in the mainstream press, which focuses on “the war on women”.
But there is a growing movement for gender equality.
Lipsmann explains that there are many women’s groups that have started working towards equal pay.
“This is a new wave of feminism,” she told me.
“It is very much about working for equal equality.
It is about women’s equality.”
The Women’s Equality Party has recently expanded into a wider network of groups that are focused on gender equality issues.
But despite this, Lipps work shows that women are still fighting for equality.
“When it comes to equality, there are a number women’s organisations that are fighting for gender equity,” she explained.
“There are a lot of organisations that say, ‘We want equality for women’.
And then there are organisations that don’t want to recognise that, and say ‘We are fighting to achieve gender equality.'”
Lippmans research shows that there is still a great deal of work to be done, and that women and men in the gender equality movement need to work together to achieve this.
“Gender equality is a social justice issue,” she concluded.
“There is still much work to do.
But we are now a lot closer than we were 10 years ago.”
