Read from August 20 to 29, 2011

A bit outdated (written in 1995, of course it would be), but informative and still somewhat relevant. I know even now that "feminism" is still a bit of a dirty word, and the sentiment about it is ignorant- "women have rights now, feminism isn't necessary." When women still make less than men for equal work, rape is still prevalent (and even made into a joke), and abortion remains a hot-button issue rather than being seen as a medical right (not to mention a personal choice), feminism is definitely still necessary- and I mean legitimate feminism that strives for equality, not "women are better" drivel.
