Merriam Webster Declares “Feminism” the Word of the Year for 2017
Merriam-Webster named “feminism” the word of they year for 2017.
After a year of angry liberal protesting the leading US dictionary declared “feminism” the word of the year.
The women’s pussy march set the tone for the year.
The BBC reported:
A leading US dictionary has named “feminism” as its word of 2017 following a surge in online searches.
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”.
Feminists are not known for their intelligence.
