Is feminism dead?

In Manifesta, feminists Jennifer Baumgartner and Amy Richards ask: Is feminism dead?

You may remember that Amy Richards was the feminist who had two of her unborn triplets killed because she didn't want to shop for large jars of mayonnaise at Costco. Bill O'Reilley also gave her a good smackdown on his show over the issue of late-term abortion.

Jenna Crispin answers that question at Bookslut:

To answer their question, “Is Feminism Dead?”: no, but it is crawling in the sand, gasping for water. And I personally think we should just shoot it in its head and put it out of its misery.

Hear, hear!
