My mom died April 9, 2004 at the age of 82.. My then 24-year -old daughter Katherine Hawkins wrote this amazing tribute to a feminist before her time immediately after her death.
The dark-haired girl in the photograph, wearing her… Read full post »
Mary Wollstonecraft has been silent for two years. Feminism, sexism, misogyny, misandry (male bashing) dominate the news more than they did two years ago.
So I am trying to resurrect Mary once again. MW is a group blog. If you want to be a contributor, private message me or email… Read full post »
I am working on a book that I have been thinking about for 37 years, since I gave birth to my first child--Feminism and Motherhood. I would love to interview other mothers who consider themselves feminists. It would be even better if you write your own post on the subject or… Read full post »
Cross-posted from my own blog, here.
writing about misandry in marywollstonecraft a couple of months
ago, I’ve been watching the news on the Internet, and, you
know, the situation is worse than I thought.
Consider the flap over Sandra Bullock and the supposed… Read full post »
Is there any such thing as misandry? On a narrow enough definition, there might not be, or at least it’s pretty rare. If we believe that misandry must involve conscious hatred of all men, I don’t think there are many misandrists. It would be a strange thing to… Read full post »
Wanderer's post belongs on the cover of Salon proper. Please comment on his blog, not on Mary Wollstonecraft.
Too many people don't realize that misandry means hatred of men as a sex; it is the exact equivalent of misogyny. Misandry is a seriously underused word on Open Salon and on blogs in general. Misogyny and misandry are evil, ugly twins locked in a hideous dance that tortures everyone. I hope… Read full post »
For those who may not know, Girls Aloud is a British
singing group. It consists of five young women, all (obviously)
very beautiful, with not much in the way of clothes on stage. Their
songs are very sexually charged. Indeed, they cover a song called
“Push It Good.”

It’s been interesting, dating again in middle age. Like anyone in that situation, I began by looking for the manual, asking advice, often from younger people. A young female friend told me, “If a woman insists on splitting the cheque in a restaurant, it means she want to… Read full post »
Deborah Young has given be permission to report Why Western Feminism is Incompatible with Islam.

I am reposting this item in marywollstonecraft because readers have felt it casts light on male responses to feminism. I first posted this item under my own name some months ago, in response to a discussion in Amy Tuteur's blog that was going on at the time. About a month ago,… Read full post »
Gailrae's writing on caregiving in general and her 24/7 care of her mother in particular was too important to be buried in the excellent larger interview. That interview is here. Gailrae blogs at "Let Me Write That Down."
If you have been an elder caregiver, what care arrangements have yo… Read full post »
Gailrae blogs at Let Me Write This Down. This interview by Gailrae is in two parts; the second part, Gailrae on Caregiving, is specifically about her experience taking care of her mother 24/7. Gailrae brillantly analyzes the neglected but essential political and social questions it raises… Read full post »

This is my mom & her sister in 1946 in their home town of San Antonio, Texas. Mom is the "tall" one. She's nearly 5'4" which is tall on her side of the family. I'm not sure what this photo has to do with my interview on feminism,… Read full post »

Do you mind telling me some basics things about yourself--age, sex, where you live, where you grew up, any siblings, any children, nieces and nephews, where you attended school. ? Feel free to say as little or as much as you like.
