Women's movements define organisations, certainly political, informed by and dedicated to principles and agendas that, when met, enhance and promote the means to empower women as a social and cultural group. Many modern-day women's movements are feminist in purpose and political orientation. 'Feminism' has its roots in 'Womanism', which refers to the theory of sexual equality and the movement for women's rights in the 1890s.The 'feminization of survival' refers to an on-the-rise phenomenon in which growing insecurities about employment and wealth production cause states, households and individuals to rely more and more on women's labor for their survival.
