What is the opposite of `feminist’?

A feminist, in simplistic terms, is someone who advocates equal rights for women. A man who believes that men should have the same rights as women is called a `hominist’. This is not a new word. George Bernard Shaw coined it in 1903 in his preface to `Man and Superman’. Another word that is commonly used now is `masculinist’.
