Radical feminists under 35 (ish) [Sep. 27th, 2007|01:13 am]

I'm going to compile an informal listing of radfems under 35 (born post-1970) because academia (or as Mary Daly would say: academentia) thinks or hopes us folk are going the way of the dinosaur.

So if you're a rad fem born 1970 or later, could I get a comment? Just give your username, or a nickname, or your real name. And if you know any authors, singers, activists, etc. who are radfem and under 35, could you give us their name. And maybe a little bio for both categories if you like, or a wee manifesto or whatnot.  And do you/your rad fems you list identify as 2nd or 3rd wave?

This is not meant to belittle older radfems in any wany, shape, or form. They're more than welcome to comment too, but please state you're older than 35, so i don't count you as a "young" rad fem.

Also, please post this other rad fem/feminist communities, blogs, etc. Let's get this thang going!

P.S. I've a controversial view of radical feminism. I'm against sweatshops and other labour exploitation, prostitution, porn, capitalism, sadomasochism, homophobia, racism, etc. One doesn't have to agree with me on everything, but most things will have it covered because radical feminism means something and stands for things without backing down.

Just a statement of your beliefs.

Whoa--you don't know 2nd vs. 3rd wave? That's all I'm hearing about in my women's studies classes and in many books, esp. pomo/third wave, books.

Whether one prefers 2nd or 3rd wave depends on who is giving the definition of them. with 2 of my women's studies profs, you'd hate 2nd wave, and like 3rd wave, with me and my other prof, you'd love 2nd wave and critique 3rd wave.

searches for neutral definitions:
