Feminism is the collective name for social and political movements that question unequal relationships between men and women, to break gender stereotypes and to strengthen the position of women.

Feminism stands for women's interests, legal equality, physical autonomy for women and against domestic and sexual violence. Feminism has many movements.
At the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century, women protested against exclusion in education, work and politics. The highlight of the first feminist wave was the struggle for women's suffrage.
From the 1960s feminism focused mainly on issues such as abortion, (un)paid labor and sexual violence.
