By that definition, yes. Though it's a simple argument from authority in regards to Bacon's method, so even that is merely placing faith in Bacon's method, or those who've told you they've tested this or that, rather than having done so yourself.
Please study and understand Baconian Method or stop using it as an excuse for everything.
"Bacon's method is an example of the application of inductive reasoning. However, Bacon's method of induction is much more complex than the essential inductive process of making generalizations from observations. Bacon's method begins with description of the requirements for making the careful, systematic observations necessary to produce quality facts. He then proceeds to use induction, the ability to generalize from a set of facts to one or more axioms. However, he stresses the necessity of not generalizing beyond what the facts truly demonstrate. The next step may be to gather additional data, or the researcher may use existing data and the new axioms to establish additional axioms. Specific types of facts can be particularly useful, such as negative instances, exceptional instances and data from experiments. The whole process is repeated in a stepwise fashion to build an increasingly complex base of knowledge, but one which is always supported by observed facts, or more generally speaking, empirical data.

Women's rights are a faith-based belief anyway, there's nothing scientific, empirical, or testable about them.
No, Women's Rights aren't a faith based belief, there is actually evidence for Women's Rights, in the form of laws.
So belief in Women's Rights isn't faith based, it's evidence based.

"No, religion isn't a faith based belief, there is evidence for religion in the form of the Catholic Church - so belief in religion isn't faith based, it's evidence based".

That takes the quote for the stupidest argument I've heard all day.

And by that token then, show me the "evidence" for women's rights, such as when a woman seeking an elective abortion is held up by gun or knife point by the father, and eviscerated in a way that would make Sharon Tate's murderer blush.

If might makes right, then more often than not, it's on the side of the men with the most killing prowess, women's rights being nothing but a quaint fairy tale or illusion. (Of course, civilized people don't believe that, in practice, this is how things should be - but it says quite a bit for the worthlessness of "some" world views, doesn't it?)
