I’m very optimistic about feminism in the 21st century. As a scientist, I never encountered any discrimination against my gender. However, decades ago, women were looked down upon in academia. I believe things will only get better in the future.
Equality for all people regardless of their gender is really important. In the west this mostly concerns discrimination. In other countries it is important because women lack fundamental human rights just because they are women. So I think feminism has an important role in the 21st century, it’s different from the role is had in the 20th century and it will probably be different in the 22nd.
