Feminism: Who's Afraid of Naomi Wolf?


Feminism is the radical notion that men and women are equal. It should not be assumed that any religion has always taught this. Modern interpretations may. But all major traditions were corrupted at some point. Something went astray in the world: a movement violently usurped men's and women's "feminine" sensibilities (such as emotional intelligence).

Instead, the movement has led us toward words over pictures, rigid logic over fluid intuition, and we are left to idealize objectivity over immediacy. A hardness, rigidity, fearfulness, and smallness has been left in place of wholeness and integration. But there is still time and a way to wholeness if we but recognize the problem. Humor (like that of Ali G) helps. Who's afraid of Naomi Wolf (author, advocate, feminist) is a play on the famous theatrical work "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
