Antony Loewenstein on feminism lite and some responses

Antony Loewenstein wrote an article in the Guardian recently about feminism lite. He made the entirely defensible argument that those feminists defending Gillard ignored her attacks on women and those feminists supporting Hillary Clinton were silent about her role as a pro-war woman killer. It has provoked a huge reaction. Here is a link to Antony’s article, “‘Feminism lite’ is letting down the women who need it the most“.

Here is a little of what Melisa McEwan at Shakesville wrote:

The thing is that what Antony Loewenstein is doing here isn’t feminist advocacy. It’s feminist policing.

Here is the link to Melissa’s full article Thank You So Much for Teaching Me About Feminism, Sir

And here is a link to Louise O’Shea’s article in Red Flag  called Loewenstein is right about Western feminism.
