“If we are genuinely committed to improving the circumstances of women, we need to get the facts straight,” Christina Hoff Sommers—the Factual Feminist—writes in a Time magazine article debunking “Five Feminist Myths that Will Not Die.”
Here is the first myth:
MYTH 1: Women are half the world’s population, working two-thirds of the world’s working hours, receiving 10% of the world’s income, owning less than 1% of the world’s property.
Problem: As Christina shows, this just isn’t true. But this myth and the other four aren’t going to be easily relinquished by our movement feminist friends. They are valuable tools to creating the policies that movement feminists love.
This is a must-read piece.
