Feminism is not necessary as no inequality exists.

But if, by your own admission, there is still inequality, is feminism not still necessary? Not all advocates are relevant or rational, but this is true of all movements and groups and doesn't render the entire group unnecessary.

There are also parts of the world where women are certainly not treated anywhere approaching equal, and therefore those areas need feminism for the same fights that were won in the west already.

It is quite impossible to say that no inequality exist, but so can be said for every single thing in life. Feminism as stated is the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.

The claim here should fall on the term advocacy. Thus actively vocating that these said rights be increased until equality in the eyes of the advocate(feminist) is reached. For each individual the level at which equality is reached will differ of course. For some this will be past the point of normal equality and actually be pro-women.

Since most people do not really have an idea of what true equality is or when it is reached, it is better to leave the issue of women rights to the founding of rights, namely the constitution.

define your terms please.
feminism: the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.

the advocacy for women's rights is only unnecessary if there is no more inequality in the sexes.

Are you arguing that NO inequality exists between sexes or are you operating under a different definition of feminism?
