Auf Salon.com erschien kürzlich ein Auszug aus Unspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and Revolution, dem aktuellen Buch von Laurie Penny, das ich wohl demnächst lesen werde. Daraus hier ein kurzes Zitat zur Bedeutung von Feminismus:
»Feminism is not a set of rules. It is not about taking rights away from men, as if there were a finite amount of liberty to go around. There is an abundance of liberty to be had if we have the guts to grasp it for everyone. Feminism is a social revolution, and a sexual revolution, and feminism is in no way content with a missionary position. It is about work, and about love, and about how one depends very much on the other. Feminism is about asking questions, and carrying on asking them even when the questions get uncomfortable.«
