Modern feminism is not a political ideology or philosophy. American feminists generally do not become feminists because of some well-defined political goal. Feminists want to vote. They want to be free to hold elective office. They want rape to be illegal. They want to be able to work. They don’t want to be forced to get and stay pregnant at all times. They want genital mutilation (of females) to be illegal.
I have an important newsflash for these feminists: They have already acheived all of these political objectives. But, nonetheless, they continue to “demand” these rights - almost as steadfastly as they “demand” to be taken seriously. Therefore, most feminists continue to live in the past without being taken seriously in the present.
