"I'm a feminist, but ... I'm pro-life. I'm in a sorority. I'm Catholic. I get bikini waxes and I love to shop. I wear thong underwear. I've never taken a women's studies class. I've never experienced discrimination." That line, "I'm a feminist, but ...," is something Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, the authors of the soon-to-be-published "Grassroots: A Field Guide for Feminist Activism," hear often. Now they'd like to change the "but" to an "and."

Shulamith Firestone, whose 1970 book "The Dialectic of Sex" became a feminist classic with its calls for a drastic rethinking of women's roles in the bearing and raising of children, was found dead Tuesday in her New York City apartment. She was 67. A recluse who struggled with mental illness in later years, the author apparently died of natural causes, said her sister, Miriam Tirzah Firestone. Only 25 when "The Dialectic of Sex" was published, Firestone vaulted to prominence as a leading theorist of the second wave of feminism that crested in the 1960s and '70s.

Imagine a woman sitting in her corner office. Neat stacks of magazines and windows over Broadway form a backdrop. A mane of long blond highlights frames her large brown eyes that grow even larger as she leans forward to stab a finger at a headline in the latest issue of her magazine. Under the heading "What Women Want," red and black type asks: "Why Are These Mass Murderers and Rapists Still Free?"

TWO generations of artists have emerged since the 1970s, when feminists made themselves heard, but discussions about the importance and meaning of their legacy continue. The Times raised the issue with artists of these later generations at various stages of development.
