NOW's New President: Why American Women Are Second-Class Citizens: Men Behaving Badly

Feminist Quote of the Day

"Men behaving badly is exactly the problem in this country. It's not a diversion - it's at the core of why women are unequal, why they are kept in second-class citizenship. . . We're living in a time when women who put themselves forward as leaders are subjected to vicious misogynistic attacks - it's very analogous to sexual harassment in the workplace. The message to other women is, 'Stay in your place.'"

Count me among the many women filled with hope that Terry O'Neill will keep her promise to shake things up in this misogynistic cowboy country by employing deadly serious tactics designed to bring us some long overdue feminist change.
