This is feminism in the sense that women and men are equal and can do anything (non-biological) that the other can. This is NOT women need to be treated differently so that they can achieve the exact same as a man. Unfortunately the term "feminism" has changed it's meaning so I'm voting based on the original.

Changed its meaning according to whom? I recognize that this is your opinion, but not only do you cite no people who actually HAVE this opinion and no indication that others do not.

Moreover, what is the dividing line? Your accommodation maxim seems unduly limited. Let's say that the military could, relatively easy, give women an alternate combat role that would allow them to meaningfully participate. How would that not serve the cause of gender equality and justice? Without recognizing that others are using approaches like you are suggesting not because it's ideal but because it is a bridging measure toward true equality. Further, let's say that the best female soldier will never be as good, by any metric, as the best male soldier. But let's say most female applicants can meet the minimum criteria. Why would it be just NOT to hire the

And do you believe biology and society have no interlinkages?

I completely agree with this. More of this type of feminism needs to happen but I believe it should be called equality. Its about men and women being equal and therefore should not be aimed at women by calling it feminism. Today's society is not happy or equal place, from wars to domestic violence and rape, people are being hurt and treated unfairly and it really does need to stop.
