An 'F' Word Revival
Department of Literature and Modern Languages
Feminism remains a controversial term, inspiring vitriol as well as celebration. Declared dead on Time magazine’s June 1998 cover, feminism has been standing on wobbly legs since the 1980s, thanks to public misperception and media-spin. However, today’s social-justice-oriented and media-savvy generation is creating a more feminism-positive environment and recognize that women’s rights are human rights, that men have a place in the movement, and that there is still much collective work to be done to realize the goal of sex and gender equality.
