A feminist is someone whose beliefs and behaviours are based around feminism.

Not all feminists have agreed in exactly what constitues inequality and injustice or on the means of overcoming them, but in terms of a set of values and normative claims (e.g. claims about how society should be), equality is at the heart of feminist core beliefs.

Also they are deeply concerned with the description and analysis of women's disadvantage, both historically and in contempory society.
