Don't blame all the world's problems on feminists.
First of all, the people who blame us are largely clueless men and farked-up misogynist chauvinist bumholes. You're probably the reason why the world has problems in the first place and you're not only hindering the feminist cause, you're criticizing it, too.
Second of all, just because bad shit happens it's not because women are somehow involved, okay? We're not cursed, despite what some let's-completely-misinterpret-the-Bible-and-give-all-religious-people-a-bad-name people think.
Third of all, if you say that women are born to emotional and passionate and easily-swayed, then men are born too callous and thick skinned and cold hearted. If you say that you speak from experience, then I speak from experience - no, seriously, I am.
Feminists are not world war starters, we're not men haters, we're not child murderers. We stand up for what is right. If you think that in the last half-century feminism as gotten nowhere, then I blame you. It's hard to burn brightly when you keep getting snuffed out. It's hard to sing with one voice when you're always getting drowned out. Equal rights, equal pay, equal choice. That's all we are. Nothing more.
