  • Sure. To me, Feminism is about Choice. It's about having the right to CHOOSE your own path and walk it. I see no reason why that would conflict with any Chosen religion... If anything the fact that you're in that religion by your own choice would only enforce your position as a feminist, not diminish it.

  • yes. Feminism is haveing the right to do what you want just like men, not that you do them

  • Of course. And it should be. I can't imagine going back to the days when the church instructed women to be the housewife (in the kitchen,barefoot and pregnant)while the husband went out to work. And that the wife lets the husband make the decisions and created the rules for the marriage. @@ That was abusive.

  • I can't see why not, especiall if one can be a republican and a Christian....seems like feminism is far less of a stretch.

  • Christianity does not suppress women. It encourages family unity. Jesus respected women. Yes is my answer.
