Some progress, some setbacks

I want to call your attention to an article entitled "10 Defining Feminist Moments of 2009" that is published on Alternet. Here's how it gets started:

This year, I’m not keeping score of feminist victories and defeats. That strategy feels artificially black-and-white and imposes a false sense of closure on an ongoing process. Instead, I’m looking back on those times in 2009 when feminism felt strong and when feminists spoke out -- the times when feminists asserted ourselves and our belief in equality, often in the face of powerful opposition, and even when it seemed like no one was listening.

It is my sincere hope that the young women who think there's something wrong with being a feminist will learn about these defining moments (as well as other such occasions) and lend their energy and commitment to the cause of equality.
