  •  "Rape culture," indeed. Look at the violence (5+ / 0-)

    against women portrayed on television, as well as trailers for movies on television. Sometimes I wonder whatever happened to the energy of we women who started demanding our equal rights and male privileges for ourselves back in the '60s and '70's. One of my family members said that we are in a "post feminist" society. I strongly disagree. Wages, violence, it is all of a piece.

    I think, therefore I am. I think.

      made a (decisive) wrong turn about 1980, about the time Reagan was inaugurated, and has been trying to right itself ever since.

      A woman worth her salt does unpaid work around the house, a lot of it, and now she has to be an earner, too?

      Feminism will get its bearings back. I'm confident of that. It already is.
