Do Tell: What Does It Mean to Be a Feminist?

The week the Dalai Lama summed up his definition of a feminist, something he claims to be, very succinctly. He said:

"I call myself a feminist. Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?"

Earlier this month we discussed what it means for a woman to be "empowered," and we noted that there have been various varieties of feminism through the years. Do you, like the Dalai Lama, subscribe to his simple definition of feminism, or has the evolution of the women's right movement impacted what it means to be a feminist?

What do you think it means to be a feminist?
