How is it in Russia, as a matter of interest?
Difficult question. Sure that 50 years ago West society was much more free than Russian. But later USSR fell dawn. We got some freedom, but got much trubbles, because couldnt handle with it. Now situation very slowly returns back to USSR style.

Ohterwise, West, as i see, moving fast to USSRs level of propaganda and restrictions during last decades.

I cannt say where state is better or worse. But sometimes when i reading some news from USA, i imagine that similarity with USSR already achieved.

I don’t edit Wikipedia because I see no reason why I should work for free for Jimmy Wales.

There are already more than enough jobs that women do for free – why on earth would I add to my tasks the drudgery of editing Wikipedia?

That said, I find your analysis offensively patronising."

Something like that. You can see at China. It have long tradition of suppression and feminism too.
Contemporary feminism originated from the British Isles, and Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the earliest pioneer.
Later, feminists of the West went for women suffrage and women in workplaces.
Industrialization and the World Wars might have accelerated the results of feminism: Educated women in the workplaces, and women do not need to "wish" to be men to achieve their full potentials.
Mao Zedong and the Communist Party have significantly advanced feminism and are way more successful than India.
