AlterNet posted a series of interesting and intelligent
perspectives on feminism, women, and the vote yesterday -- and I'm not saying
that just because I wrote one of the pieces.
(For the record, the original headline I submitted was "Trust Women?: What
If We Elect the First Woman President of the United States, and She Sucks?) What's
enlightening about the articles -- which include commentaries from Laura
Flanders of The Nation and Kimberle
Williams Crenshaw with Eve Ensler, plus an excellent overview of the points
of conflict by Jill Filipovic -- is that each writer questions the
feminist "mandate" to vote for Hillary from a different angle, but all
call for a more nuanced understanding of feminist values and goals.
