Rescuing Feminism from the Feminists

by Mary Ann Glendon, First Things

Glendon discusses Elizabeth Fox-Genovese’s book “Feminism is not the Story of My Life:How Today’s Feminist Elite Has Lost Touch with the Real Concerns of Women.” Fox-Genovese claims that modern day feminism has become a cloak for other issues–such as population control, abortion, etc. She suggests that what is needed is a more responsive type of feminism, which focuses less on the feminist elite, and more on what most women actually want.
