I just noticed today that Feministe has a category for Appalachia. It's been my experience that Appalachian women are crazy strong, but maybe not so much down with the label as a whole.
Feministing wonders whether one can be a "pro-life" feminist. I vote no, you really really can't be if you are politically anti-choice. No. Sorry, Sarah Palin.
Read this great piece by Courtney E. Martin. She talks about the present and future of the women's movement and generational differences and the evolution of the movement. Excerpt:
I don't think there will ever be a global, or even national, uprising of women focused on one singular goal. There will be no singular feminist agenda. There will be no women's movement. And that's not a bad thing. Because there will be thousands upon thousands of women -- young and old alike -- waking up tomorrow with big ideas, lots of resources and communication tools, and plenty of conviction that they have the right and responsibility to make the world better.
And that's enough regurgitated content. Actual creativity coming again soon.
