Equity feminism

Equity feminists don't think that, when it comes to people, 'one size fits all'. Equity feminists think that men and women should be treated fairly, according to their needs, abilities, and aspirations.

A litmus test for equity feminism: 

if you ever meet someone who says "I am a feminist, but I think feminism today has lost it's way and is ignoring the problems facing men and boys", then you are probably talking to an 'equity feminist'. If you go a bit deeper and find that they think ideas like 'toxic masculinity' are themselves inherently toxic, then you are almost certainly talking to an equity feminist.
