Rethinking feminism: Poverty and health care
Over at The Reaction, guest blogger Aspazia tackles poverty and health care within a feminist framework. Her conclusion:
The risk here for many feminists is that we would be neglecting the specific agenda already laid out. But, I am sorry, I just donâ€™t believe that feminist politics — whether we are talking about NOW or Feminist Majority — are going to be effective until they give up the old paradigms, and the old political rhetoric, and start attracting more men and women to participate in their activism.
We may need to rethink how we sell our message, what we call ourselves in the public realm, and how we frame our issues. If we donâ€™t do this, we are simply inefficacious. We are sacrificing good works for purity of message.
