Merriam-Webster names “feminism” as the word of 2017

The number of people searching for the word was up 70% on 2016.

Merriam-Webster dictionary has named “feminism” as its word of 2017 following a surge in online searches.

The Gateway Pundit reports that after a year of angry liberal protesting the leading US dictionary declared “feminism” the word of the year.

The dignified and very logical women’s “pussy march” set the tone for a year where sexual assault, #METOO hashtags, and patriarchy hysteria plagued American society.

The BBC reports…

Merriam-Webster said interest in the term was driven by women’s marches, new TV shows and films on women’s issues and the string of news stories on sexual assault and harassment claims.

The number of people searching for the word was up 70% on 2016, it said.

The dictionary defines feminism as “the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes”.

It adds that it is also “organised activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests”.
