"Feminism is the struggle to end sexist oppression. Its aim is not to benefit solely any specific group of women, any particular race or class of women. It does not privilege women over men. It has the power to transform in a meaningful way all our lives. Most importantly, feminism is neither a lifestyle nor a ready-made identity or role one can step into(...)but a political commitment to radical change."
[...] honors her mother and her grandmother. Her name is always seen written in lowercase letters because she believes that what is most important is the "substance of [my] books, not who I am."The irony being, of course, that this only draws more attention to the author instead of the content of her writings; the insistence on the minuscule case can easily be seen pretentious posturing. E.E. Cummings didn't actually change his legal name to lowercase (nor did he predominantly sign it as such), K.D. Lang is no longer going by k.d. lang, and so we are left with this.
