First of all, I would like to say
you have a very new resource site here....unfortunately
I don't think its enough. I'm a
33 year old female...one of the
daughters of the original feminist generation,
and I think there is A LOT of confusion
out there about what feminism means today.
Back in the 60-70's women had Gloria Steinem
to look up to for guidance....NOW who do
we have?? Really, we have no active women
out there in the spotlight educating women & girls
everywhere on what the term feminism
Recently Margaret Cho posted an entry
in her blog and I happen to agree with her.
Why aren't the feminist leaders standing
up to the forefront when women like
Courtney Love & Martha Stewart are persecuted
in the public media as insane women.
Even now as I write this email
to you ....a public debate is going on
the state of feminism and
all I keep reading is A LOT OF CONFUSION....especially
with young women today. We need
a new leader. We need fresh faces
out there to educate the masses
on what it means to be a feminist. I
can't stand this new attitude young
girls have towards each other...a lot of
hatred...a lot of miscommunication....
women are slandered for being stay-at-home
moms...other moms are slandered for going
I thought feminism was about choices
for women...not a stereotype. The
state of feminism is weakening amongst the
young women. We need a new
direction. Thanks for hearing me out!
