Fanatical Feminism

Pic: Rebecca Walker

Rebecca Walker, daughter of revered feminist writer, Alice Walker has written a highly emotive piece in Femail about the estranged relationship she now has with her mother, since becoming a mother herself. Apparently Walker views motherhood as a hindrance and the worst thing that could happen to a women. Rebecca, who obviously would have felt the ramifications of this belief, candidly speaks out about having a mother who treated her like a contemporary and was more concerned about her feminist work than the emotional investment required to raise a child. This is a fantastically written piece, that will really make you question the tenets of feminism, or at least that of the hard-line variety anyway. Read the full article here.
