Discussion of men as feminists

// 27 September 2007

Apparently this old chestnut is raging around the blog-o-sphere so I thought I’d refer to this article which has a pretty good inventory of the recent posts and debates. Especially as the conclusion is a very reasonable:

To that end, I don’t think it matters if men actually call themselves feminists- but having some men who openly support feminism and are willing to call themselves feminists, I think, helps. It’s more important for men to be interested in being feminists than taking the name.

Have Your say
