Feminazi is a term popularized by radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.[1][2][3] Feminazi is a portmanteau of the nouns feminist and Nazi. The term is used pejoratively[4][5][6] in North America by some U.S. conservatives and critics referring to extremist feminists.[3]

Definition

The online version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the term as used in a "usually disparaging" manner, to describe "an extreme or militant feminist".[7]

Use and history of the word

In his 1992 book, Limbaugh credited his friend Tom Hazlett, an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute,[8] with coining the term.[3] In the book, Limbaugh also stated that the word refers to unspecified women whose goal is to allow as many abortions as possible, saying at one point that there were fewer than 25 "true feminazis" in the U.S.[9][10][11] Limbaugh has used the term to refer to members of the National Center for Women and Policing, the Feminist Majority Foundation, the National Organization for Women, and other organizations at the March for Women's Lives, a large pro-choice demonstration.[12][13][14][15][16]
