When is a revolution not a revolution? When it's about Women's Liberation of course; surprise, surprise. I'm tired of a feminism that acquiesces, of a feminism that smashes its own foundation instead of the patriarchy. Feminism is a global, political social justice movement for the liberation of women and society based on equality for all people. Yet unfortunately, all too often proponents of feminism spend their valuable time and energies excusing themselves and their politics and trying to persuade everyone that feminism is not a big hairy scary threat, like some spider lurking in your supermarket bananas.
