Individualist feminism, also known as libertarian feminism, is a form of feminism that sees the way to equality for women as lying through equal individual rights for everyone without regard to gender. This contrasts with modern mainstream feminism, which considers women as an identity group and focuses on securing rights for all women within that framework.

Individualist feminists generally believe that women should take control and responsibility of their own lives. It also opposes any government interference an individual makes with her own body (such as restrictions on abortion or pornography).

Well-known exponents of individualist feminism include the individualist anarchist Wendy McElroy, and the art historian Camille Paglia.
