We don’t need this feminism

A campaign to raise awareness about feminism has taken the shape of individuals holding signs that read “I need feminism because…” in a photo for Tumblr (www.wnfmcgill.tumblr.com). While this campaign was well-intentioned in its efforts to increase visibility of an entirely worthy and important cause, it has resulted, largely, in a manipulation of feminist thought.

As the Occupy movement celebrates its first anniversary, we revisit an article from the Winter 2012 issue of Ms. magazine.
