Feminism as an ideology has spread over the centuries across the world. From proto feminism to postmodern feminism, it has travelled far and long across centuries. While proto feminism was all about initial centuries of awakening of women scholars in western world. But during this phase also in different non western countries be it Islamic states, China, Japan, Africa, Russia varied form of feminisms emerged. Further book looks at different countries and how they practice feminism in contemporary times. Although at this time feminism did not constitute any kind of united or mass movement, there was a nationwide growth of debating societies and social clubs in which feminist issues were discussed and the beginning of organized campaigns to improve the lives of both single and married women by allowing access to education and employment and reforming, marriage, divorce, property and child custody laws; by the 1860's the vote too was a prominent feminist demands. But unlike utopian socialists, these middle and upper middle class feminists did not attack family or questioning conventional morality. Feminism has as an ideology spread across western and non western world. It has influenced policy making for gender sensitization and oppression of women across the world. In this chapter I will discuss some of the pertinent issues relating to women as understood by feminism in different parts of the world. So here I look selectively at feminism and issues involved around women as seen in different cultures and countries such as US, Britain, France. In next chapter the book looks at non-western world feminism. In Conclusion I will like to start here by building my argument on Ayn Rand's philosophy. She stated "how desperately the world needs prime movers and how viciously it treats them" and to portray "what happens to the world without them. I derive from her the concept of primary movers and state how women in their own ways are primary movers and they have been treated viciously. There is immense hatred against the whole concept of womenhood. She is just treated as a tool for sex and reproduction, while men reap the benefits of their labor.
