Girls and Femininity

Have we all become feminists? Share

Thanks for linking to that post, Elena. It is thought provoking. Here is the comment I left for "Papabear":

Women in sport, in politics, in the military, and in other formerly all-male fields may be great role models for feminism, but not for femininity.

I agree that femininity is partly a natural tendency of women and girls, and partly a tradition that is passed on by women to girls. Once the thread is severed, it will be difficult to weave together again. I know I've had to check myself, once or twice, from regurgitating a feminist talking point when confronted with a woman making a choice I was not trained by my default upbringing to understand.
