The biggest global feminist issue is lack of solidarity for the feminist movement. Evidence and experience shows that there are fractions in the feminist movement. The moment we become selective, we compromise on feminist ideology. Compromising on feminism helps no one at the end of the day, we are demanding equity and equality. Confusion on feminist movement is an actual issue right now because feminists are being questioned and tested. Hence education on what, who, why about feminism and feminist is much needed.
