The Most Memorable Feminist Moments of the Decade

this cover is actually from 1999.

Double X has a list of The Most Memorable Feminist Moments of the Decade.

It (rightly, of course) opens with Britney’s Oops!…I Did it Again. Other highlights include the masculinity crisis outlined by Susan Faludi in Stiffed and made sorta, kinda funny by Judd Apatow in his oeuvre; the debut of Bratz dolls; and Christina’s Stripped, for “arguably killing the squeaky-clean girl image of the pop idol.” (“Can’t Hold Us Down” = awesome.) There’s also an entry for those ridiculous right-hand rings they tried to sell women; Laura Kipnis’ Against Love (which I’ve been meaning to re-read); and Lisa Belkin’s ever-controversial “The Opt-Out Revolution,”–which I think got one thing right and that thing is: most work sucks and second wave feminists way over-estimated its appeal. Anyway, kind of a fun read. Ada, did you have favorites? Did they leave anything important out?–kara
