Redefining Feminism

March 08, 1992

If Eleanor Smeal really believes that feminism has no liabilities, then she ought to get out more often. In the real world, feminism does not bring to mind issues, but a personality type--a strident, man-hating zealot. It's discouraging to see a feminist leader who doesn't recognize the obstacles a potential convert faces. The media have certainly done their share to perpetuate this stereotype, but the inability of feminist leadership to manage its public image is troubling.
