Feminism Obsolete, Says Journalist

In his Herald Blog today, Teddy Jamieson announced that feminism is dead:

"How often, after all, do you hear the word feminism these days outside the Guardian women's page? We have, it seems, moved on. Indeed, according to a press release for cultural commentator Laura Kipnis's new book, The Female Thing, these days we are living in a "post-post-feminist world"."

I hate that journalists are so fond of declaring this.

Why haven't they been reading Bitch, Bust, Fringe, Feministing, Shakespeare's Sister, Ms, Thus Spake Zuska, She's Such a Geek, BlogHer, On Balance, the Guerilla Girls...
