Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Being a feminist is no more extremist than believing that people of all races should be treated equally…

I love, love, love pinball tables! Interesting read.

All told, the combined workforces of the companies involved totals well over a million employees.
