Washington “Women’s March”: only for certain women
A women’s march, to occur the day after the presidential inauguration 2017 – sounds pretty inclusive, doesn’t it? When a pro-life feminist group applied to join the march, the initial responses were positive, even including the idea that feminism might include pro-lifers. However, the negatives swiftly rained down, and the organizers decided that, after all, one had to be in favor of abortion as a choice in order to be a feminist. In a Washington Post article, Carol Crossed explains that Susan B. Anthony was a feminist and definitely opposed abortion. However, as currently defined by the media, feminism and pro-life don’t go together. Yet.
