Femininity versus Feminism


http://www.salon.com/books/review/2006/10/18/kipnis

This is an article I came across that illustrates the unfortunate differences encountered within the terms feminism and femininity. These two words are often unfortunately looked upon as polar opposites as women and society struggle with the relationship of these two terms.
"The absurdity comes from the disparity between our rapidly changing social landscape (including the advances of feminism) and the recalcitrant internal map Kipnis calls "the female psyche."Feminism, she writes, has collided with "an unanticipated opponent: the inner woman.""
