Reflecting on the Politics of Extremism and Women’s (Reproductive) Rights.
Lately, I’m spending quite a bit of time being actually astonished about what is going on in the political landscape in the U.S. with regard to women. Yet, as Hillary Clinton said so pointedly in her speech this week at the Women in the World conference in New York, it’s not that surprising, because it’s a commonly repeated scenario. Perhaps, as Susan Faludi has argued, this backlash is actually a sign of progress. We can hope.
