Feminism, in and of itself, began as a push for women to be more accepted in the workplace and politics, as well as to earn equal pay for equal work. They achieved those goals long ago. Now they are fueled by very authoritarian ideologies called post-structuralism and critical theory AKA cultural Marxism that assume that a dominant group necessarily oppresses a subservient group and must be destroyed and supplanted with the subservient group.

Yes. Feminists and indeed all these progressive groups from the alt-Left that follow cultural marxism are all regressive left wing fascists who's ideology runs counter to the enlightenment when it comes to personal freedoms and rights. They do not believe in free speech, and are absolute totalitarians when it comes to any opposition to their ideology.

Yes. There is a small group of feminists that hold power in the feminist movement. Those are feminists. Most other people that call themselves feminists are not true feminists because they have no such power. They choose to defend the authoritarian feminists though for some reason, presumably because they believe in the authoritarian feminist principles they espouse. This makes feminism a shady ideology that cannot be trusted at face value.

No. There's no Empress of Feminism nor could anyone gain such a position.

A handful of the groups that wear the mantle "feminist" might aspire to authoritarianism. But it turns out one has to have actual power to truly be "authoritarian".

“is feminism an authoritarian movement in your opinion ?”
At the level of the feminist movement, where there are prominent members that have authority and power within the movement, the answer is an obvious yes.
One only has to look as far as the “women’s march”, which was actually a feminist march where some “women” … women that were not feminists, were disinvited. Pro-Life women were not allowed to have a stage there. Conservative women were similarly deplatformed. Republican women too. Clearly feminism is not about women. But rather, it’s about feminists. And following a dogmatic, cohesive ideology that uses the outdated definition of classic feminism (equal Rights) as a shaming tool for anyone who opposes their current ideology (critical theory).
But this charade is getting old now, and people are catching on. Especially when they claim all women into their movement without their consent, only to throw them out if they don’t behave in ways that feminism demands they do.

Feminism is not a specific movement. You can't equate first and second waves with each other, and you can't equate the vast array of feminist thought as being a single block of thought.
A feminist is simply someone who advocates for and works towards the improvement of the lives of women and their rights and opportunities within society.
Yes, of course, some feminists are total bitches. Some of them are psychos. Some one care about women and care nothing about men.
But just because one person who uses this label acts like this, doesn't mean that all feminists are like this. Not all republicans are Trump, not all Democrats sexually please interns with cigars, not all cops are racist, not all Chinese eat dogs. But also, just because not all are one thing, doesn't mean some aren't.
So yes, there are authoritarian feminists. There are also feminists who want authoritarian means within a specific scope to achieve a specific goal. And then there are feminists who are committed to more achieving goals through other means.
