A Definition of Feminism

I like this quote by Rebecca Whisnant because it is very clear and focussed. Though I may not agree with all of her article, I found it thought provoking and informative. -M.A.

"The resistance movement of and for women, against patriarchy, is called feminism, and its strength depends significantly on the cogency of the political analysis that underlies it." -Rebecca Whisnant

I also liked: "One claim central to second-wave radical feminism is that women are a class sharing a common condition." -Rebecca Whisnant

And: "Feminism is about ending the subordination of women. Expanding women’s freedom of choice on a variety of fronts is an important part of that, but it is not the whole story. In fact, any meaningful liberation movement involves not only claiming the right to make choices, but also holding oneself accountable for the effects of those choices on oneself and on others."-Rebecca Whisnant
