This is a fantastic article about how the feminist movement is re-shaping itself, and developing a very personal identity -- as opposed to fighting public injustice, issues like women's rights in education and in the workforce.

I really found this to be an interesting and creative article, give it a read. Also, one of the books they mention, "That Takes Ovaries!: Bold Females and Their Brazen Acts", is a hilarious and inspirational book.

Here's a link to the article, titled "Women on the Edge": http://www.inthesetimes.com/article/609/

Happy Reading ;)

EDITED TO SAY: Upon reading this article, my best friend taryn exclaimed: "It's nice to know that you can revolutionize the world by just being yourself."

 And I thought she summed up the afterthought of the article pretty perfectly ;)
