There’s such a dearth of recognizable female leadership that Mother Teresa, who was really one of the world’s biggest tools of global patriarchy, gets conveniently trotted out as a beacon of women’s leadership whenever needed. How tragic! To me and other feminist men and women, using Mother Teresa, a key player in rolling back reproductive rights, as a role model for women is akin to Rush Limbaugh being made a poster boy for feminist causes.
