'Feminism' Is the Word of the Year, but Do We Know What It Means?

What happened?

Merriam-Webster recently announced that "feminism" was its word of the year. The online dictionary said that "feminism" had more searches than any other word in 2017 and generated 70 percent more searches year over year.

“Feminism” is a noun defined by Merriam-Webster as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes” and “organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests.”

Glenn's take:

"Feminism" in our society has gotten away from its roots, and today's movement is no longer solely about equality. Glenn gave his definition of feminism for Merriam-Webster's benefit: "Leftist activism that is fueled by perpetuating the victimization of women."

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
