"What exactly is feminism all about?"
Feminism is an ideology. Today, it is a radical, social change ideology. And this feminist ideology as it exists in the first world TODAY is based on the premise that equal Rights, equal opportunities and full emancipation for women are not good enough to be called "gender equality" for women. So feminist lobby for privileges beyond this dictionary defined equality, as their definition of "gender equality".
While that is what's actually going on, nearly all feminists (prominent feminists and ordinary self-proclaimed feminists) always seem to use the legacy or classic definition of feminism from a century ago which was the simple quest for equal Rights. However, they do not differentiate between the reality that they already have full equality to men via Rights, opportunities and Freedoms, and the false claim that they are still fighting for that condition.
Furthermore, nearly all feminists seem to go along with the feminist movement's victimhood status for women, proclaiming fully equal women to be disadvantaged somehow by equality.

We want basic human rights, we want Social, Economic and Political Equality
America's early history, women were denied some of the basic rights enjoyed by male citizens. For example, married women couldn't own property and had no legal claim to any money they might earn, and no female had the right to vote. Women were expected to focus on housework and motherhood, not politics.Mar 5, 2010https://www.history.com › topics19th Amendment - Definition, Passage & Summary -----------------------------------Why did it take so long for women's suffrage?The reason for the long delay, especially in the drawn-out final months of the effort, lay less in sexism than in racism. By 1919, women had mostly beaten down the arguments that their voting would imperil female fertility, men's masculinity or the nation's vitality.Jun 4, 2019https://www.thelily.com › why-did-i...
