I’ve penned a column at Counter Cultured titled, “Young Women Should Pursue Happiness by Rejecting Radical Feminism.”
Below is an excerpt from the article:
Like many young women today, I am uncomfortable associating myself with the mainstream women’s movement. Radical feminists claim to have a monopoly on our gender and work tirelessly to squash any dissent. For a group that preaches so-called tolerance, they see subservience to paternalistic government as the answer to any problem.
Much to the dismay of radical feminists, a recent poll shows that 72 percent of Americans reject the feminist label. Why would any woman with self-respect be a champion of “reproductive rights,” biological equality, and female victimhood? We care about many issues, and don’t want to be defined by our “lady parts.”
Unfortunately most young women are coaxed into thinking cradle-to-grave government dependency is elevating as we saw with “Life of Julia” in the 2012 election.
The fairer sex desires an alternative to the status quo. One answer lies in “freedom feminism.”
