Indeed, it is time for a new feminism. High time. I was listening to a talk the other day in which the speaker declared that women will always be better women than men, and men will always be better men than women. The problem therefore with feminism is that a small minority of women decided being a woman was not worthwhile, and so they forced all women to compete in the race to become more like men, on their terms. It’s not a game we can win. Nor should we even try. It amazes me sometimes how profoundly anti-female feminists are.
Anyway, the most profound way in which feminists demand that women be more like men is in our abortion-friendly culture. And that’s why I appreciated this article. Certainly the number of women who get it is growing.
I’m not alone in challenging the old feminism, in which women’s equality comes at the cost of their femininity. By continuing to promote abortion, lawmakers, politicians, social workers, lawyers, educators, and all parties with a vested interest in women’s health and wellbeing distract themselves from providing women the resources and tools they really need to be happy and healthy.
