Well, gee, now that we can vote and hold jobs and get (almost) equal pay for equal work -- hell now that we have an entire month
to honor women's history (a long one, too) -- does feminism still matter?
Jessica Valenti, founder and editor of the blog Feministing
and author of the book Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters
, says yes. She will be speaking at Meramec Community College on Why Feminism STILL Matters. The lecture will be on Monday, March 1, at 11 a.m. in the Meramec Theatre
, kicking off St. Louis Community College's celebration of women's history month.
