I love it! It’s very French Revolution, it sidesteps potential landmines and it connotes equality for all — not just between the sexes, as you compassionately point out.

Permission to use this term going forward? While feminism as a term still has tremendous sociopolitical utility, historical import, and trajectory I can’t help but hope a more egalitarian term would have even more.

Yours perfectly captures my sociopolitical aspirations for equality — everyone should fight for it, everyone will benefit from it. Merci beaucoup, mon ami.
