And maybe it’s not. But, just focusing on this piece alone, where she starts with making a claim that a large portion of women identify as feminist and then goes on to make a gross generalization that these same women with children are being forced to stay home by a pandemic, doesn’t lead me to believe that stay-at-home-moms have a place in her discussion on feminism.

Her whole point is that feminism is being stunted because women are being forced to stay at home and be domestic. So, if you choose to stay home not because of a pandemic, are you not a feminist? Are you also stunting the feminist agenda?

Do you see why this her generalized line of thinking doesn’t sit well with me?
