Interesting thoughts on feminism and femininity

I came across this in the UK Guardian a little while ago, in a Q&A with Nancy Dell’Olio (most famous for being the girlfriend of former England football coach and current but-soon-to-be-sacked Manchester City coach Sven Goran Eriksson).

This one comment jumped out at me:

” Are you a feminist?

I am new feminist. New feminists feel we are the same as men, but we have something men do not – our femininity. We are much more powerful than men and that’s what women have to realise; that’s why men are scared. I want to have equality, but I want to keep my privilege – they have to open the door of my car. I want to use my feminine side. “

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
