Feminist Critique [Oct. 28th, 2008|01:08 am]

This well-written article is a critique of white, privileged feminism:

(Ganked from louiseroho with my thanks.)

Thing is, I'm kind of a crap feminist. Not because I don't care, but because I guess I figured if I had the chemistry and the plumbing, I was all set.

But honestly, I know fuck all about the history, not to mention what worked and what didn't. I've got a little bit of a handle on white (and straight) privilege, but I don't get a lot of the references the author makes.

Is there a feminist primer I should be reading? (I did read the backpack essay.)
