Pern, normally you have very intelligent input which I value, but this time, I'm aghast.
How much have you studied women's issues? Have you ever taken a women's studies course?
Do you know anything about feminism outside of the 1st world? Take a look at the situation of women in developing countries and then tell me that feminism isn't needed over there.
