On The Feminist Debate

On The Feminist Debate

Dear Sir,

Political issues that cause controversy amongst feminists must be discussed and resolved if women are to achieve liberation.

There is no way of avoiding conflicts of an ideological nature - they are even desirable because they challenge women to think about the system in a critical, aggressive way. And criticism and aggression are things women are not usually equipped to handle.

But women do not have to adopt stereotyped male (capitalist?) methods of solving problems. They are sucked in if they allow ideology to cut them off from the support of their sisters and the self respect there is in affirming a personal definition of what is woman.
