People Taking Internet Quiz on Feminism Confused by what Feminism is

The Washington Post published a quiz called What Type of Feminist (or Anti-Feminist) are You? and you should definitely take it. You can see your results, question by question, compared with those of the rest of the participants. After you finish the quiz, you're offered the option to submit your answers to see where you fall. There are six groups, ranging from "Hell Yeah" Feminists to "Certainly Not" Feminists. Each group is accompanied by a description and a video of participants taking the quiz who fell under that particular category. 

What is apparent to me after watching all six videos is that a large majority of the participants are wholly uneducated on the topic of feminism and frequently misinterpret the term. As somebody who fell into the "Hell Yeah" Feminist group, it was particularly grating for me to watch the "Certainly Not" Feminist video. If we understand the different forms of misogyny and how they permeate our culture, we can begin to see why we do still need feminism, how women's bodies and choices are being policed, and how what you think is the reality of the movement and what is the reality can be two very, very different things. Below are a couple links that might help sort out any confusion you might have on what misogyny means.

And if you're still not sold on the whole "Feminism" thing, here's a catchy little tune to break it down for you:
