What Have YOU Done for the Feminist Movement Lately?
You've heard it all before. Feminism is dead. Third wave feminists are politically apathetic individualists. Third wavers blog and pole-dance and post drunk photos of themselves on Facebook and call it feminism. The latest proclamation of feminism's death/irrelevance/apoliticism/weaknesses comes from a Guardian article titled Sex, drink and fashion. Is this the new face of American feminism?
Like Jessica at Feministing, I'd love to rip this article to shreds, but following her lead I'm going to focus on what feminists all over are doing for the movement...starting with you. What have you done for feminism? Whether it's speaking up when you hear sexist or homophobic jokes or organizing a rally for immigrant women's rights, I want to know what you've done lately to keep feminism alive and well.
