Feminist Politics Now?

Columbia University is hosting a two-day local and global feminism conference. I attended yesterday’s session and it was quite a treat to listen to feminist scholars from different parts of the world and various disciplines talk about the state of feminism. I would have liked to have seen feminists from my generation represented though. There seems to be a huge gap between “70s-era” feminists and those of us born in the 70s who have chosen to continue working for justice.
