Notes on the State of Feminism
I'm not sure if I need to say anything about this. I think I may just put it up as a piece of found art:
GM: Is the blogosphere the location for a new feminism?
Samhita Mukhopadhyay: If you are an activist and not reading blogs, you're not doing your job. [The blogosphere] is a listening audience and an active audience. It could be anyone out there; an anti-feminist from Ohio, a housewife in Illinois.
GM: Are most of your readers from the Midwest?
SM: We get a lot of response from the Midwest and Austin, Texas, but the Bay Area and New York City are our two mainstays. We hear from a lot of college students. ...
GM: Is it possible to have a united feminist movement?
SM: Those chicks who flashed their tits in the 60s largely cater to the white middle class. They often don't do enough to include women of color. I think what you see now is little clusters [of feminists] getting together on issues, like the Duke rape case. It's fragmented, but once something happens, people rally.
