"Ladies and gentlemen: I have been writing about women’s issues for In These Times for an entire month. I’ve covered activism against sexual harassment; I’ve covered anti-rape activism; I’ve covered reproductive justice. I have spoken to, read, and listened to speeches by a multitude of young women. And yet I have been remiss: I’ve made it through four entire web columns without once asking why young people today are not feminists." (11/03/11)
