Feminism Is on the Move Again, But There Is Still a Lot of Work to Do

I remember when it was quite a stretch for any newspaper to allow a writer to put a feminist frame on a story, even if it was about violence against women. That's changed. The way that we speak about women's experiences from female genital mutilation to pornography to sexual violence to street harassment has undergone a profound shift as feminist ideas have moved more firmly into the mainstream. But that doesn't mean that it's time to rest on our laurels.
