Feminism is one of the most criticised theories, despite it having no negative connotations for anyone involved. Neither does it talk of extinguishing the rights of the men and nor does it try to give unwarranted entitlements to women. Despite all that, there are fewer feminists, every day. The deep rooted patriarchy, insecurities, and injustices would always try to stop the movement of the women from being oppressed to being free. Feminist jurisprudence encompasses the examination of many strands of feminist theory, as well as the themes that have originated and developed within feminist thinking, as well as the application of theory to issues that concern members of the class. It is the law's neutrality as a mechanism that perpetuates women's inequalities. Feminists hold a position that seeks to challenge the current legal status quo by focusing on the institutions and laws that would be required to correct the gender imbalance in society.
