It's a fallacy to conflate the feminist political movement with feminist ideology. They're quire different. Feminism as a concept is fairly universal: equality for women and an end to gender-based discrimination, at its core. But as a political movement, it can vary: for example, American feminist activists would have very different goals from Bangladeshi feminist activists.

In short, I agree with you, but it's only because everything in America is politicised and skewed. Not because feminists lack the capacity for egalitarianism.
