when pigs fly … expect the unbelievable

Archive for February 2013

In the 1970s, women were proud to be feminists.  Today, not so.  I wonder why?

Here are some definitions of feminism:

Feminism is the political theory and practice to free all women:  women of color, working class women, poor women, physically challenged women, lesbians, old women — as well as white economically privileged heterosexual women.  Anything less than this is not feminism.  –Barbara Smith, 1979

Feminism is a political theory that meets a society that deals with gender in a way that, on balance, harms women, and intends to correct that.

Are you acquainted with feminism?  How do you feel about it?

Take a look at the feminist lexicon and then make those decisions:  http://www.emsah.uq.edu.au/ansr/Publ_OOT/OOT_Lexicon.htm
