	Modern day concepts of feminism are somewhat out of place, yes - but in so far as the Lunar Way has some aspects that are directly opposed to the patriarchy of Yelmic religion, I think it can be considered recognisably feminist. 
	It is, of course, very different to modern feminism in many different ways. Much more emphasis on womens mysteries, and commitment to equality comes from a mystic perspective, not an Enlightenment rational one. But I think any actively anti-patriarchal movement can be described as feminist, and the Lunar Way is often that.
