Discourse on the Future of Feminism

I just flew home and my mom had set this article out on my bed. It's a dialogue between two editors at The New Republic Judith Shulevitz and Rebecca Traister about the history of feminism in the United States, the current state of feminism and the direction it is heading. They mention many of the issues we've discussed in class including the ERA (and equal opportunity), Carrie Chapman Catt (and the 19th amendment), and the power of the media in shaping how society views women. They also discuss many issues prevalent to the women's movement today including sexual assault and the role of the internet in feminist discussions.  A little on the long side but a fascinating read.
