Firing Line Friday: Resolved: That the Women’s Movement Has Been Disastrous

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     Feminism has changed over the better part of a century over which it has evolved from “first wave” to “intersectional”. An all female array of guests (Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington, Helen Alvare, Betty Friedan, Karen S. Burstein, Camille Paglia, Kathryn Kolbert), coving both sides of the question of if the women’s movement being disastrous, from 1994 shows not only how it changed from its nascent beginnings to that point, and highlights just how much has changed since 1994—for example Ariana Huffington was on the “anti-feminism” side while Germaine Greer (who is condemned as transphobic today), was on the “pro-feminism” side.

     Until next Friday.
