Default Feminist.... Are You One?

I'm currently reading a book called "Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity"-it's about the new movement toward the DIY, homesteading, baking, crafting, attachment parenting culture. Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/145166544X

It's been causing me to think about feminism, how I define it, and whether or not I put myself in this catagory. Since we kind of have a smattering of age here, I thought it would be interesting to get others opinions.

How do you define feminism and do you see yourself as one? Also, do you think that the move towards a "modern homemaker" type culture is bad for women? Especially for the moms--the idea that attachment parenting, baby wearing, and extended breastfeeding was oppressive to women was brought up--what to you think?
