Not to justify Woodley, but to understand her

Woodley

A very coherent and necessary rumination on feminism in popular media. I appreciate Friedman’s attempt to understand rather than shame Woodley’s (admittedly) misguided comments about “loving men” and needing to be equal. I often find that the term feminism is alienating, and that if you even have the slightest doubt about it, you are frowned upon and chastised. I hope that we begin to more deeply examine all of the complexities and flaws that come along with modern day feminism, in order to make it the all-encompassing concept that it aspires to be.
