“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • "American Electra: Feminism's Ritual Matricide" by Susan Faludi, since it was sent along in a Sandy packet, photocopied and ready for the train.

    I usually do not like these generational conversations, even if there is a rift, because I think it really calls for generalization and stereotyping. However, I also think it's ok for people to disagree about feminism; always in the hopes that it furthers conversation. I don't think feminism is the first movement in which people disagreed about goals and vision, but it does seem to be a movement in which people get fixated on the disagreements--and isn't that a little sexist?
