Feminists are everywhere these days. Beyoncé performed in front of the f-word in towering lights, feminism is being celebrated on magazine covers the world over, and every young female celebrity gets put through the “are you or aren’t you” feminist bona fides test.
In some ways, feminism’s current popularity is a dream come true: Feminists, myself included, have been working for a long time to convince people – younger women, especially – that they are, in fact, feminists. Believe in gender equality? we asked. Congratulations, you’re a feminist!
