Feminism and Sexism
I apologize if I am posting in the wrong section. (I was unsure if this belongs in the Philosophy section.) I understand that the term "feminism" may mean many things, for it can refer to historical movements and be on a global scale.
Is there a difference between feminism and sexism? If so, how does one differentiate between the two?
I am not an expert on any of the aforementioned subjects, so I am sorry for sounding so ignorant. Any help is appreciated.

Feminism is a belief in the right of women to have political, social, and economic equality with men. Relatively it could be defined as a sexist belief, but the apparent goal is just equality.

Problem is, there is no obvious border between both, so what one may see as sexism, for someone else is feminism and vice versa.
