The Feminist Movement (”movement” = “move the mind” in Latin) should not be considered God's plan for the family or women in the work place rather is a worldly concept to replace biblical values.
We can find God's plan for the family in His Ten Commandments. The Commandment on adultery is an all encompassing pro-family law when properly understood as spiritual adultery as to violate God's plan for the family covering the sins of homosexuality, fornication and foregoing marriage. The Commandment on honoring our mothers and fathers further shows how important God held the family.
Who would think to attack family and call it equal rights?
Women are different than men, something recognized the world over. God instructs us in His word to get married when leaving the parents (Ge 2:24; Mk 10:7; Mt 19:5,6; Eph 5:31) This is further explained that women need headship (De 22:28,29; 1 Cor 11:3). This has been the well known historic norm in the USA, France, Germany and the rest of the West, until World War II when the Feminist Movement was able to gain a foothold.
The Feminist Movement begins with the decision not to get married after primary education and leaving the parents home, rather given an option of more education &/or work. Women and men choosing not to get married has led to a number of changes in society. Today we have single young women going to college and often find themselves in coed dorms. Women also find their employer may or may not be a Christian at all, and they are also subject to the whims of every coworker and customers they should meet.
Although this is the norm today it was not God's plan for a healthy family. The result has caused a dramatic increase in rape, pornography, prostitution, and divorce. Support for the Feminist Movement supports all the ills that go with it.
The Feminist issue can be compared to legal abortion. Do we educate young Christians to abort their children or avoid the legal practice as not what God would have us do? How many families and children have been lost due to the Feminist Movement?
Where did the Feminist Movement come from?
Since the Feminist Movement is not of God we don't have to look too hard to discover the agenda began with Satan's plan for world government that includes abolishing the family. The Marxists would have us believe they are liberating the women from their family, as if working and paying taxes is freedom. No matter how much freedom they advocate their real objective is world government and the destruction of the Christian culture and family, with the ultimate objective to abolish Christianity or religion, if it were possible.

Manifesto of the Communist Party
by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels
The French Revolution, for example, abolished feudal property in favor of bourgeois property.
The distinguishing feature of communism is not the abolition of property generally, but the abolition of bourgeois property. But modern bourgeois private property is the final and most complete expression of the system of producing and appropriating products that is based on class antagonisms, on the exploitation of the many by the few.
In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.
Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists.
Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty.
The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality.
The charges against communism made from a religious, a philosophical and, generally, from an ideological standpoint, are not deserving of serious examination.
"There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, Justice, etc., that are common to all states of society. But communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience."
The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution!
